For the guys I go out with for 1,000 yard (and further) we use (in order of expense) Nightforce, US Optic, Vortex, Burris, Millet (this is cheap nigerly me).
Calibers used large end 338, 300 WM, .30’06, 308 (most popular), 6.5 Creedmore, 243 and one on the windless days uses a 1:7 twist 223 loaded with some really long bullets.

Some other links for you
Make sure your rifle/chambering/load stays supersonic at furthest distance you want to shoot.
You don’t have to push your 300 WM to top velocity just enough to get where you want to go.
Look into the amount of elevation you need to dial it for the furthest distance with your loads
Make sure to mount the scope so that it has enough elevation turns to do the job.
(in other words if you need 44 MOA to reach 1K then if you need a 20 moa or 30 moa rail put one on)
Other things I find helpful to me
Steel Targets that react at 1000 – we have several from 14×14, 12×12, 81/2x11tall
Remote TV if shooting at paper targets to see where hitting, spotting scopes not cutting it.
I shoot in the desert so a shade (top and two sides), portable shooting table & chair
Strelok software in my phone – weather station and wind flags every 100 yards
Chronograph so see what my loads really are clocking
if you intend to set up your own practive range out on BLM or whatever – a Laser Rangefinder
