Scope for .308?

I'm thinking about getting a .308 and was wondering what scope manufacturer and what magnification level? I will be shooting up to about 1000 yards. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

For longer ranges, can't go wrong with a Nightforce scope, but I think the 5.5-22 would do just fine for 1000 yards.

Yes, NF is "THE" scope for long-range-shooting/hunting

i was also take a look to the IOR-Valdada, or S&B ..... but .... to be sure to don't make mistakes .... NF 5,5-22 it's an awesome choice

The only problem is is that I'm a student so I have a budget do you have any other suggestions for a little bit cheaper scope?

Unfortunately it is about 1000 but I would prefer about 800 or so. I have 2500 so with about 1000 in the rifle that leaves me with 1500 for optics and relapsing equipment along with the other necessities.

If you check out the for sale section or Gunbrokers.com you will find one in your price range. You should be able to find a couple of Leupold 8-25x50 and 6.5-20x50 in the $1000.00 or less range. Good luck.
