Looking for specific tactical scope recommendations for a Barrett M82-A1. All shooting to be within the 200-1000 yard range. Considering Super Sniper & Millett given their value/price.

SS10x42 and a SS16x42.  Since the price is so good, get both.  Out to 1000 is easily done with a 10x scope, but if you ever have a chance to go out farther you might appreciate the 16x.  However if your limited to one get the 10x.  Better eye relief, and wider FOV.

With the 82 10x is all you'll ever need.  Shot group for that rifle at 1K is something like 72 inches on a decent day with better than milsurp ammunition.
The SS 10x42 is a good choice, recoil won't kill it.

No I have been spared the grief and loss of funds. A better choice in that price range is IOR 6x42 fixed power tactical with MP8 reticle.

I concur, There are also some others The SuperSniper for instance, and it costs less, with good glass and nearly bullet proof.
