What brands of rifles and scopes does the Miltary use such as the army, marines and navy seals?

As far as assault rifles, bolt action guns.

Colt, FN, Remington, Mossberg, Beretta

Leupold, aimpoint, trijicon... all the nice spendy ones!

Militarys been making mile or more shots with fixed 10X leupolds. More is better, but more means your eye has to be closer to the occular bell. and if youre shooting something you cant keep still it will bite you.

Pretty interesting that sniper rifles are usually fitted with fixed power scopes. Then again, their purpose is quite a bit different than the recreation/hunting/competition/consumer market. Going after a 6ft target isn't the same as a half-inch bullseye.

Exactly right alb. Killzone on a soft target is roughly 16 inches. a sub MOA gun with a 10X scope will very easily hit well within that 16"

I sometimes hear people saying that Bushmaster has made some military rifles but no one I've heard from that was actually in the military seems to have seen one. I'm just saying it's possible they made some. I wouldn't know for sure though and it's likely they didn't.

Regular military uses what you see on tv. Special force guys use those plus what they think may work. Many innovations have come from the special forces arena.

My basic training rifle was a bushmaster ar-15 lower.

There's all kinds of custom stuff that's out there, especially in the SOF units, but the main ones mentioned above are most of the majority.
