Re: Scopes....

+1 on the Leupold Mark 4 8.5-25x50mm. I just got mine last month and it is awesome. A huge improvement over the little Bushnell that came with the package deal. Ridz : Have you had time to test out your M99 with Mark 4 and ExRings? I was just wondering if you were still able to get a 100 yard zero w...

Re: Scope Theory Question: Leupold Mark 4 8.5-25 with M99

Thanks for the theory. I enjoy reading your posts. As I was installing my new BORS, I was running the numbers on my KAC Bulletflight iPod Ballistics App (You laugh, but it is actually really good in the testing I've done so far with my 99.) and I just couldn't wrap my head around what kind of crazy ...

Thank you, sir! Informative as always. I was wondering why I counted 87 clicks. I was scratching my head in confusion. That explains a lot.

Scope Theory Question: Leupold Mark 4 8.5-25 with M99

I recently picked up a Leupold Mark 4 8.5-25x50 for my M99 and I have a few basic long range shooting questions. I have a farm I can go to in order to safely attempt a mile long shot (eventually). I have seen that some guys here have made that shot with approximately 54 MOA of elevation adjustment. ...

M99/Leupold Mark 4 8.5-25 Mounting Position?

I finally bought a Leupold Mark 4 8.5-25x50mm as an upgrade from the Bushnell Elite 3200 for my M99. I've got this thing leveled on the scope rail, but I am not sure if I have it in the right position on the rail. Can you guys give me some advice? Or pics to show me the approximate position on the r...

Re: 50 BMG 12 gauge Sabot

What a waste of perfectly good 50 BMG bullets...

Why launch those at 1200 fps when you can get them up to 2750 in a Barrett?

Re: new movie 82a1 has a nice scene

Page 21 of the Barrett M99 Operator's Manual clearly states: M99 CLEANING PROCEDURE 1. The rifle should be cleaned and lubricated with blood after each shooting session. 2. Apply blood to a chamber brush and clean the chamber. 3. Apply blood to a bore brush and clean the bore. 4. Clean the muzzle br...

Re: Made the mile.

So you have the 27 MOA M99 scope rail, Barrett ExRings set to 40 MOA, and a Nightforce NXS 5.5-22x56mm?

I'm new to this so I'm trying to learn from you guys about what setups work best for the M99 for long distance shooting.

Thanks for the info.

Re: Made the mile.

vegas, Can you post up your M99, rings, and scope setup? I am looking to upgrade from the stock Bushnell "Elite" 10x after I get a buyer for my 50 Beowulf on Gunbroker. I am looking at getting a Leupold Mark 4 8.5-25x50mm that is compatible with BORS. Congratulations on your shot! Thanks.

Tijico must be new. Never heard of those. I'd also like to see a pic of their New York Trigger Magazines. :rofl:

Re: Steel

It all depends on the strength of your steel target. Google AR500 Steel Targets. There is a guy selling AR500 hardened steel targets on the Snipers Hide Forums. Seem to be of high quality and strength. http://snipershide.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Main=117570&Number=1285308#Post12...

Your Thoughts on B and B Armory .50 Ammo?

I bought 50 rounds of their ammo for my first Model 99 outting and it performed well. It seems to be of excellent quality and the price is good too. I think it was $3.50 per round (after shipping) and it seemed to be of better quality than the Federal American Eagle that I bought. Do you guys have a...

Re: Bushnell 10X Scope

Just to help further clear things up, my Model 99A1 kit came with a Barrett inspection tag that lists the scope as sighted in at 100M and another inspection tag listing scope, scope manual, cleaning kit, and gun manual. The lady you spoke to just made a mistake. Bushnell's 10x's are installed from t...

I need to know if I'm gonna need new Barrett rings. -------------- Disregard, I found the answer. The rifles that ship from the factory wi...
