I agree on 15X being plenty for 1000. It's more of a psychological desire to see the target as if it was right there. The same shooter might not think twice about shooting iron sights at 100. (10X @ 1000 being the equivalent). Seeing the target is only part of the equation. Wind, elevation and air density matter just as much and often more. So does a quality barrel and ammo. Long distance shooting is just harder because everything has to be better, but your main obstacle is drastically increasing ballistic drops and drift.
