Scope for new Windrunner M96

I just picked up my new EDM Arms M96-Windrunner in .50BMG today.
I can't wait to take this thing to the range.
Do you guys have any suggestions on a scope for 1-2K yards?
EDM says it must have a minimum of 4" eye relief.

I use a Nightforce NXS 5.5-22x56 with NP-R1 reticle on mine.

I use the same NF scope on my .50, hard to beat all the scope you get for the money. Buy a good scope once and you'll be happy, get talked into a crappy one and you'll be miserable until you get a good one.

US Optics, S&B, Ziess, Leupold and IOR would be other good choices.

I am partial to S&B, USO, Night Force, or Bushnell Tactical Elite. I routinely switch my scope out on my 50. Right now I have my Bushnell on it. I only currently own the S&B and the Bushnell, but just recently traded my NF. All of these are great choices for a 50 and hold up well to the awkward recoil of the 50 with a muzzle brake. I shoot a Bushmaster BA50. Post up some pics, I love the Windrunner, it is a great rifle. Enjoy, they are an addiction.

This is the only picture I've got for now.
I'll post a few more as soon as I get some glass on it.
