Seems like a good deal of punishment for a scope to take and still hold zero, much less stay together!

Cool.

The scope and rings I have on my 50s are 'rated' for the recoil (in theory).

I couldn't actually say myself if they flex that much because try as I might, every time I set off a round, I've always got my eyes jammed shut.

Something about the back blast coming out of the muzzle break makes me shut my eyes (and smile) every time.

That's a semi-auto too.

That really surprised me on how the Super Snipers and the Bushnell 3200 10x40mm can take that abuse. Those are the lower end scopes that people have used on 50BMGs with success.

They can't.....Well....lets get this straight...on heavier 50 cals (Barrett 82, AR-50--30-40 pounds) they can as the increased weight and reduced felt recoil don't punish the scope too badly.

On lighter 50's such as the Ultralite and Ultramags (sometimes BFG 15-25 pounds) you are taking a big chance on the ability of the scope to absorb that type of punishment.
Most of the time, they can for a short time then....off to the repair center.

That's why the 50's cost so much. You really can't skimp on certain items, scopes being one of them.

Also if you watch the video, you will see the scope rail moves in relation to the receiver. If you ask me, it needs to be tightened down.

Super Snipers regularly (at least used to) blow reticles on a .50 BMG. The scope pictured is a S&B, and that's top dollar.

Any scope on a .50 will flex like that.

Was just at SJGE today an checked out the .50 ammo (while seeing what additional wallet damage I could do). My 7.62 X 39 looked so pathetic next to it...
