Poor guy trying to get into long range. My rifle is a Tikka T3x CTR in 6.5 creed. I was wondering what would be the optimal scope for shooting out to 1000 meters for around $1000. The guy at the shop suggested the Vortex Viper PST Gen II 5-25x50. Everyone I know loves vortex but after reading posts on here and listening to rex apparently they arent that great. So what would be my best option? Thanks for any and all help.

Given that the reticles in both scopes are something I can work with, which one between the PA GL 4-16x50 RGrid2 and the Arken EP4 4-16x50 gets the nod? I understand the PA has a little more elevation available, and the Arken is a 34mm tube. I understand that the glass on both is surprisingly good for the price point of the scope, and the Arken has very good tracking. I would primarily be using this as a LR plinker out in the pasture out to 890 yards (farthest I can safely). Thanks for your time and input.
