Email me what you are looking for. I have all the military ballistics charts for the M82A1. Ball, AP, etc. Trajectory, wind, you name it.

Thanks for the advice.. I'm just looking for some general information on the cartridge.. I'd like to know the different bullet weights, speed, drop, etc.. I don't own a .50 cal, but I'm just curious.. I'd also like to know the maximum effective range of the round. I heard someone on the news say that it is 3 miles..! [:O] Heh, anyways.. Thanks again.. Ian

Triggerfifty's book is a must read. .50-Caliber Sniper Course Hard-Target Interdiction Dean Michaelis ISBN-1-58160-068-2 Anyhow, maximum range as stated in an issue of Very High Power is 9000yd at 45* elevation of the barrel. Also, if you are looking into 50BMG, please visit www.ferret50.com

Sorry, I missed that he was looking for effective range. If I remember correctly by what I have read about Skip Talbot shooting at the Rock: I think they were ar a range of 2 miles. And I think they mentioned that the rounds were going subsonic at 1.5 miles. Im not sure though, but I will look it up. So what kind of effectiveness are you looking for? Energy, accuracy, or before it goes subsonic? All three will be subjective to outside parameters.
