What is the best scope on the market PERIOD?

I am looking to buy a new scope for my new custom .264 win mag.I want the best money can buy period! I was thinking S&B or a premier? I would like somewhere in the neighborhood of a 5.5 or 6-25 for power. money is no object to a point $4000 or less,but if there is a scope out there just as good without the fancy name for less$ well ok but quailty is my main concern.100yds to 1200 yds and back to EXACT ZERO everytime!!! any suguestions from you big dogs out there would be great.

For me it would be a S&B PM 2 5-25 with Holland's ART Reticle.
Was able to use one for a year, and it was the best glass I have ever used.

Not a big fan of these 34&35mm tubes . Stick with a Nightforce if repeatability is your goal as you state .
Proven track record, no doubt.

I think they are both great choices i would also include March scopes they have a great scope that is 2.5-25x42,heaps of benchrest guys using March.IOR are great scopes for the money,best you look through as many as you can, your eyes will tell you which is best suited to you.
