Ok, I splurged and dropped 9k on a Barrett 82A1 50 caliber. scoped it with a big Leupold and put a watermelon at 1,500 yards on a tree stump. I vaporized the melon on the first shot. Ain't no thang...nuttin but a chicken wing. I've shot alot of long range, but this gun kicks ass. I had little windage so it was a bit of a no-brainer. I had her sighted in at a grand and just dialed in the extra yardage. No thang..a couple clicks. Dusting a melon at 3/4 of a mile was righteous to say the least.

Here's a pic:

It's not as cool as a Barrett , but my buddy just bought a Styer HS 50 in 50 BMG for $3,200.  He put an VX-3 Leupold on it with Leupold Perma Rings.  People here in MA sort of freak out when you pull it out of the truck at the rifle range.  As for performance, if you can see it you can hit it.  The rifle it's a damn hoot to shoot the thing.  HAVE FUN WITH YOUR NEW TOY.
