what scope for m99 barrett to get to at least 2k yards?

Just got a Model 99 Barrett in .416 Barrett. What scope should I put on top to reach out to at least 2000 yards? It takes 43moa to get to 1500 yards using Barretts 450gr bthp traveling 3050. PRICED UNDER $2500! I'm thinking a Nightforce 8-32x56.

That would be my pick in magnification, the model would be the NXS with illuminated reticle.
My second pick would be the Leupold Mark4 ERT 6.5-20x50 34mm M5 with locking adjustments.

how many minutes to 2k would be the question. the 8x32 doesn't have as much adjustment as the 5x22. you might have to have that thing canted perfect, zeroed just off the bottom to get to 2k.

they only have 65 moa adjustment total. you can go farther using the reticle. OR just get a March with 100 moa adjustment. a better scope.

I would save a few more bucks and go with a IOR 12-52x56 MF 40mm ED TERMINATOR MULTI-BDC ILLUMINATED MP-8 XTREME. It can be set up for a .50 BMG and the glass is better than a NF.

IMO,
Jon
