You do not want a .50 cal. There is no need for one. But I checked on the barret website, and you can get one for $4,000-$6,000. they definitely are not cheap. If you want a rifle that can shoot accurately at distances I would look in to the model 700, as roamingeast mentioned. The 30-06 round is a good one for distance, and accuracy as well. Obviously you would want a bolt action rifle for the best accuracy.

Mannlicher-Schönauer m1903.

Or perhaps I'm just biased?

Hmm change in money plans, I am not even going to be able to spend that much, so the best I can do is a standard rifle or something I can expand, maybe not even into sniping. Any suggestions for anything decent at all under $200 (Yeah, I hate it but I'm not going to have as much money to spend on stuff and the sniper is going to run it way above my affordable range)?

Get a used, but in good condition, Mosin Nagant. If you want to scope it that might cost extra though.

If you get some money, go for a M1A. And if you wanted to look like Rambo you could later buy some Sopmod parts for it.

I dont think you are going to find a decent rifle for under $400. If you do get a rifle around $200, then it is most likely not going to be that accurate.

Hey Roaming East, i found a bunch of gun videos on youtube under the same name you use here. Are those yours? most of them are Pistol based but some of them look like a G3 or something. YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.
