If you want good advice, give more info.

How do you plan to hunt with this rifle? Woods, spot and stalk, long range glassing, etc.?

What range?

What type of reticle do you prefer?

Is weight a concern?

Do you plan to use a BDC reticle or turret, range card, or ballistic computer to compensated for bullet drop and wind?

Re: I'm more confused than a dog at a hub cap factory!!

Well I just bought me the Zeiss Conquest 4.5-14x44 RZ800.
Everybody I mention to that I just bought me a .257 Weatherby immediately says long range. I want to take advantage of the gun. I don't want to be out target shooting and say "I should have".
I'm not on a lease now but I do plan to be on a lease next year. This year was the right rifle and the right scope.
What I want to do is sit up high on a hill and shoot. Won't be taking any shots unless I know I'll hit. This combination just expands my range immensely.
I did want to stay under $1000.

Thanks for the suggestions
