So can anyone comment on the bluegrass armory viper's accuracy?

The staff there is quite friendly. They seem to have a nice product. I haven't yet read a review though.

There's the Serbu, everyone seems to like that rifle a whole lot. I've shot one, and it's really nice, but the recoil is a little stiff compared to some of the competition, like the Barret or AR50, but those command a higher price. Another to look at is the Ferret ar15 upper. As far as I can tell these seem to be the highest quality conversion given the parameters that you mention above. Get some tough optics too. Talkin about like nightforce or something.

I had a copy of a special weapons magazine, or something like that, and it was all about barrets. I was really impressed, made me want to go buy one, until I saw the price tag. The barrets are capable of great accuracy as one article told about a sniper killing an insurgent @ 2015 yds or so. Also that in familiarization that groups were MOA with the bolt guns.

Check out Cobb50. I recently purchased one with the 22" barrel. The muzzle break is like the AR-50's, but the cobb has the ablility to use 10 rd mags. It is very accurate, light enough to carry, and a real pleasure to shoot! :D Price: $4149.00 gun, mag, bipod, and 150 rds of ammo.

It's hard to beat the AR50 for an off the shelf rifle.
Sportsmans warehouse seem to always have one in stock.

I am quite happy with my State Arms .50 BMG.

It is accurate, and was (relatively) affordable.

Customer service was incredible.

I've sold (a few) and shot alot of AR50s.
They are very accurate, well made, competitively priced, and pretty ergonomically designed. I have no doubt that Armalite will be around for awhile too.
However, cost per round is the prohibiting factor. Also, check your local ranges, some won't/don't allow .50s.
