Any .50BMG shooters out there?

I just bought a new Barret 99 in .50BMG cal. Im looking for a good scope for it. Ive been looking at the ATN's in a 8-24X75. Was wonderin if anyone has had one, and are they any good? Or is there a better one out there?

You might want to check out the Nightforce 8-32x56 NXS for that "long distance" 50 BMG ... I've seen a few of the 50s at the range here and 2 of them were sporting Nightforce scopes while the other one was using a Leupold Mark 4....

Just make sure that whatever you pick, that its rated for 50 cal. Don't believe the salesperson....make sure it's in WRITING!

I shook apart a Burris, just by bump-firing my M82A1 a couple of times

I now have a Leupold Mark IV 8.5 - 25x50MM and this is a crystal clear major improvement, that has not failed.
