Nightforce scopes are optically good, ridiculously tough, mechanically superb scopes.  They are a great choice for what you are doing, but there are many other choices that are just as (or nearly as)tough and optically better. 

I have used several precision rigs with the NXS series scopes (never have personally owned one, however), and every one I used was consistently accurate, reliable, and repeatable after cycle after cycle of dialing dope, returning to zero, dialing again, returning again, etc., etc., etc.

What is your price range?

Also, what is your target range? When you say 800-yard and mention 1000 yards is that what you intend to shoot or is that the outer limit? If you would like to use the rifle between 25-1000 yards, then consider scopes in the 2.5/4X to 20X range. NF has some good options, but others that come to mind are the new Vortex PST 4-16, which costs less, or a variety of high-end fare, including the NF 3-15 F1, Premier 3-15, USO 3-17 or S&B 3-20. IOR is another option in between.

If all you're interested in is long-distance shots, save the dough and get a Super Sniper 16X or 20X.

Nightforce makes a great scope, no question.

As mentioned, there are other options that will get you better glass or a few other niceties.  With a little more info, we can help narrow the field.

If you are set on Nightforce, get a Nightforce, you will not be disappointed.
