Longrange scope

I am new to longrange shooting.I have shot out to 300 yards.I am looking at building a gun in either a 7mm or a 300 win mag.What would be the best scope for hunting and shooting out to 1000 yrds? Thanks

    The BEST would be either a Nightforce, Schmidt & Bender, U.S. Optics, or perhaps even a Leupy. Look to spend $1-3000 for the BEST.

    Nightforce 3.5X15, IMHO as an all round scope.....

    I just got a NXS 5-22 x 56 NIGHTFORCE.

    At the end of the day it just depends on your budget and what you expect the scope do for you ?

    I personally like the extra magnification the 22 gives over the 15 X ?? IMO
