Need opinions on new scope for shotting up to 1000yds?

I am wanting anyones opinion on which scope to buy? If i can do a survey i would but dont know how. My Hunting Rifle is a 7mm rem mag shooting Berger vld distance 500-1000yds my budget is $1200. Please suggest any scope you see fit. Preferrable one that has turrets. Magnification i am thinking maybe in the range of 20x. My plans are to get this ready for my goat hunt in colorado this year

I like the new VX-3's LR/T 6.5-20 and the Huskemaw 5-20.
They both will be in that price range.

Sightron S3 LR in 6-24 with mildots $740 100 MOA elevation, turrets almost as solid as the NF and by most accounts glass that is better than NF
