Got a Barrett mod 99 .50 rifle and need a good long range scope that isn't terrifically expensive.

I had an ATN on my 50 and it was heavy. I didn't particularly care for it but sold it with the rifle...
I like Vortex on my std rifles but can't say if their rated to hold up on the big gun... they have a good warranty so i'd give one a try.
I second the PST recommendation.
That's my opinion... and I'm stick'in to it...
but.. I might change my mind.

Burris 5x25x50 II, best bang for the buck.
