    How much you want to spend? Nightforce is the shit, but cost more than the rifle.

      Not sure what you're looking at but I have one I'm looking to upgrade.
      If I'm not breaking any rules here - look at this:
      https://www.longislandgunclub.com/fo...ope-field-test

      Look at what came in 9th overall best in the high end scope review and 1st overall in value (street price) for what you get.

      Bushnell Elite Tactical 3.5 x 21 x 50.

      Mine wearing the (may I say exotic?) Horus H59 reticle.

      Let me know if this is something that rings your bell.

      Whatever you get I would imagine you're going to want a hell of a set of rings to keep it nailed down. Spuhr or (my choice) Near Mfg. Alpha Mount.

              Do some research.. Night force will run you around 2k.. Leupold mark 4.. About 1600..mark 6 over 2.4k and the mark 8 is pushing 4.5k..

              The most popular scope used among the top 100 precision rifle shooters was the new vortex razor 2... Runs around 2.25k before mounts don't know if it's rated for 50 bmg though

                  I'm using a Leupold MK IV ERT 6.5 x 20 FFP on one and I have to tell you, it's a good piece of glass. I only wish it was in the 1600 range.

                  I have to tell you. One of the things that was high on my list was (is) the Vortex Razor Gen II.
                  It was that damn Malaka guy that veered me off track the other night.

                      Big rifle=Big recoil=Big glass=Expensive glass. I find in scopes, use what the Spec Ops uses, it has been tested under extreme conditions.

                        Slight difference. I have the ERT. Paid a couple hundred more, but of course, that was a few years ago. As the newer models have come out, prices drop on the older ones.

                          Nightforce is the way to go. plus their customer service is amazing, I damaged the cap for my Parallax adjustment and called then to find out how much a replacement would be, They just asked for my address and serial number and a few days later a new cap and some swag were in my mailbox, Gratis.

                          Nightforce customer for life.

                          If anyone is interested in checking it out you are MOAR than welcome to.
