    Hey just wanted to see your opinions on what would be the most accurate in that category? This rifle will be doing bench target shooting mostly if that helps. Thanks

    If you are shooting benchrest, as in "real" BR, (a "rifle" built to sit there, and fire without you touching more than the trigger) then look into getting a custom rifle built. A Mcmillan single shot action, barrel of whatever flavor, and a good stock.

    Here is a pic of a .50 BMG benchrest rifle:

    If you plan on getting a bench gun built, give Randy a call and ask some questions. http://www.dierksind.com/

    He makes some of the best .50 BMG bench guns.

    For a commercially available option without the budget of the custom guns, take a look at the Armalite AR-50. It is a very stable and accurate platform that in concept is designed around a single-shot test barrel and action bolted to an aluminum shooting bench with an adjustable cheek piece and a trigger. The rifle has very little felt recoil and is sub-MOA capable out of the box with decent optics, and it costs less than half of what most competing rifles cost. I think my brother paid about $2600 for his, though he now has about $6000 into it with optics, the drag bag, bipod, loading dies, ect.

    If you are seriously interested in .50 calibre competition shooting, I assume that you already belong to the Fifty Caliber Shooter's Association (if not, why not?).

    Check what the current winners are using, and go from there. That is more likely to yield the performance you're seeking than the subjective opinions of anonymous strangers on this forum, or any other.

    So what you're saying is that the people that post replies here opinions aren't worth squat?!:rolleyes:

    Just because a person is or isn't a member of the FCSA doesn't mean that they don't know what they're talking about.

    Those windrunners look like pretty amazing options.

    Thanks for the responses. do any of you have the barrett model 99? If so please let me know about the accuracy and performance and how it compares to others. And this will not be an only bench gun but will not be shoulder fired a lot. Please keep the suggestions coming.
