What scope for 1000 yard kills

here is the deal i am building a long range hunting rifle and am to the point of a new scope. i know everyone here is a nightforce fan and i am also. i just want to see what people are thinking for a hunting rifle capable of 1000 yard kills. i use turrits but i like a moa retical. i have a np-r1 on one of my guns, i have mark 4 with tmr. never tried zeiss or ior but have heard good things.i want to know that i can turn my turrits and the scope will come back to 100 yard zero. what do you guys think is the best hunting scope/reticle combo. i am hopong that i can find one used so if you are going to sell your let me know......

    i actually just shipped that same scope with tmr about 5 hours ago. i am looking at either nightforce 3x15x50 or 5.5x20x50,maybe zeiss 4.5-14 or ior 4.5-14. i want to know if ppl have these and what they think. i have a nightfoce so i am really looking for info on IOR or Zeiss.

    I have the Zies Conquest and a Leupy vx3. Both are 6.5-20. Both nice lightwieght scopes, compared to the nxs. I like the Leupy better.
