I just saw on TV where a Canadian team made what will probably be a new world record sniper takeout of an Afghan soldier. 2645 yds supposedly confirmed. (awesome shot!!) Got me to wondering about the 50 conversions for the AR. How much punishment do they dish out to the receiver? Is the break efficient enough to keep from trashing a nice lower? Would one shoot enough rounds thru a 50 to do any real damage? I would assume cost and brutality of blast would not make running 200 rds in an afternoon something common?
Anyone care to comment? What do you think of one if you have it?
The "Tim Taylor" always comes out in me when I think of owning that bad baby (arr arrrr aaarrrrrrr)
