Obviously a very subjective question- for the sake of this argument let's presume deer sized game at 1k. To get to the point where you can reliably harvest a deer at 1k takes a serious amount of practice. Let's again presume that you have a rifle capable of delivering an ethically lethal shot at 1k. You have the fieldcraft, the gun, the round, the ability and the situation, so a 1k shot is well within your envelope. How much scope do you need to get there? There are tons of folks that swear a NF 5.5-22 is barely adequate for deer @ 200 yards. Then there are those that use an old 6x for everything under the sun. One thing we can probably all agree on is that more money does not necessarily mean more scope. If you were looking to take deer at 1k what is the best- the least- the most practical scope you would use and why?
