awesome - rarely is it in stock...I'll have to keep an eye on that site, thanks
Much more chance of ricochet with a .50 at 200 yrds due the powerful muzzle velocity . A 300yrd range I go to prohibits .338 or larger calibers do to increase of dangerous ricochets
the ammo is 4 to 1 ball and tracer too. shoot it at night and see it into the distance!
You can use pull down bullets and surplus powder WC860 and once fired brass and load that .50 for just about $1.50 for each round.
Buy 8 lbs of powder as 1 pound will do about 30 cases.
Pats reloading for powder.
here are the inexpensive projectiles.
Get it and get to shooting.
I have friends that bought .50 cal pistols and rifles, Casul .454 pistols etc.. They always wind up not shooting them because once you have fired it a few times, it loses it's novelty. We go out with .223 and 7.62X39 rifles. Maybe a .308 for "boom" factor and .357, .40, .45 and 9mm pistols. The big guns always seem to stay at home. Even the .300 mags.
If you do get it, spend some coin on a good scope and spotting scope for your buddy and tear into some mountainsides!
Oh yeah, like said before, reload.
I'd shoot the hell out of a 50 BMG....pain is temporary
I don't see myself reloading....I have ZERO reloading equipment nor experience..while I'm sure it isn't difficult...even at $5/round for the good ammo it's still cheaper than spraying multiple 30 round mags out of the AKs or ARs
A 50 BMG is the gun of what Chevy's are to pickup trucks. See if you can lease one.
I've seen 50BMG ammo on a few websites for decent prices. Armor piercing, explosive tips, tracers, etc. Granted its all old surplus, but if it fires it fires right?
50BMG is the ultimate prepper gun. It will literally put down anything in an end-of-the-world scenario.
The problems with that type of gun is where are you going to shoot it and the ammo, So it sort of a pain in the b***
I feel like in this case ammo is actually a positive. Expensive? Yes. Awesome options? ABSOLUTELY.
AP, tracer, explosive, all readily available at about $10 a round. Not a cheap day, but it would be a totally awesome day at the range!
