Long range optics suggestions

Hi, I've built myself a nice rifle to take out to some decent ranges most of the time only 600 yards and on occasion 1km I've been looking at vortex viper pst gen 2 in ffp and mrad. Does anyone have recommendations for other scopes I should look through before buying price range up to about 1600 before taxes. Thanks for reading!

You can buy a Nightforce SHV in 5-20 for less or step up into a NXS for a bit more.
Look into this article https://ioutdoorpursuit.com/long-range-rifle-scope/ they have some nice scopes list in that price range. I suggest you go look through a few different ones. Glass quality is more important than power. I had a 4-16 pst that I quickly sold and bought a Nightforce 4-14 ffp that I can shoot 1000 yards with and spot shots out further.

All depends from your preferences. For example, you can use scopes or binoculars for deer hunting. For example, I have CenterPoint 72002 1-4×20 MSR Rifle Scope. Built with a rugged construction for durability, the riflescope is a great extension for AR rifles, sturdy enough to handle the recoil and powerful enough for ranges up to 250 yards. I decided to buy it after reading review
