Best scope for a 50 BMG

Postby moonlighter365 on Tue May 05, 2009 6:19 pm

What is a good scope to put on a 50 BMG? I was considering a Nightforce but the new Bushnell 6500 has caught my eye. Which of these 2 would you prefer? Also, are there any other brands and models that anybody recommends for long range 50 BMG shooting.

The 50 BMG community rarely agrees on anything - the one thing they do agree on is NightForce is the #1 BGM scope. I've used Leupolds on mine, but mainly NF.

Right on track with the superb Nightforce products, Moonlighter. I also use Mark IVs.
