$3k to $4k and the way foward (help)

I have started to get into the addictive world of long range hunting and shooting and have come to a point where I would like some more advice from those that have been there and done that, and that are overall more experienced.

I will list the current set up I have and then would like to know what everyone else would do in my situation. My overall goal is to have a rifle that I can confidently shoot game (elk/deer) out to (max) 1000 yards.

For my next purchase I was thinking of the Swarovski EL 10x42 range finder/binoculars combo that runs about $3k, however, I am hesitant to pull the trigger (ha ha) on the purchase because I am wondering if there is another purchase that should take priority given my current set up, and the direction it should go.

What I have/ have done so far....

Remington 700, 7mm Mag BDL, Walnut stock. (everything is factory).

Barrel is free floated, done by me. Gun shoots 3/4 MOA at a 100 yrds. (factory barrel, but it is good).

Up graded the scope to a 5.5 x 22 x 56 Nightforce, with MOAR.

I still need rings and proper long action rail (suggestions?).

I invested in the Nightforce Xball ballistics program.

I have a Harris Bi pod, a good back pack and thatís about it.

So what do the experts think? in a priority list? Stock?, barrel?, reloading equipment? optics? I just want some advice on where I should spend some money next? If this is your set up and you had $4k to put into it what would you do next?
