Default Rifle Scope for M700 XCR Tactical Long Range 300 Win Mag

Ordered my first rifle and need help choosing a scope. After doing research in store and all over the web I decided to put the money into the glass and not the rifle. I'll get a precision rifle when I can shoot precision shots. I do need a high quality scope to get there and need your help to narrow down the list.

I found one scope I really liked, it is the Schmidt & Bender 5-25x56 PM II/LP/MTC. The dealer tells me I cannot go wrong, but this scope is $3,700. I phoned Nightforce and they recommend the Atacr. I am sure each factory will recommend something nice, but I would prefer recommendations. Still waiting for a call back from USO.

Since I am a new to shooting long range I want to be sure a scope will work from 100 yrds to 1000 yrds. I would like it to be easy to use and acquire very quickly. I prefer First Focal Plane. My rifle is a M700 XCR Long Range Tactical chambered in 300 Win Mag.


Are there high quality scopes under $3000?
How long can I expect a scope to last?
Are all the scopes as this price range rugged?
What other scopes should I look at?

Thank you in advance for your help and suggestions.
