Which scope ?

I just bought a used Remington 700 XCR 300 ultra mag with a custom trigger and muzzle break. I plan on doing some reloading and eventually get into some longer ranges ( up to 800yrds ? ) I haven't bought a scope yet and i'm looking for some advice for a good scope for under $1200.

Thanks for any advice

Re: Which scope ?

Sightron SIII, Leupold VXIII, Vortex Viper PST, all these are my top picks for that kind of money.

Vortex Viper PST. An awesome scope under 1k. I love mine and I am saving to purchase another.

Re: Which scope ?

I just picked up a Weaver Tactical 3.5-15X50 to throw on a dedicated coyote gun. I am very impressed with the glass. The turrets are repeatable, couldn't have asked for a better box test. For the price, $699.00 plus rings I don't see how you can go wrong. I think I could have gotten the 5.5-20X50 for $799.00. Check it out.
