that really is about 150 rounds, you just put some foam under them to make it look like more.





I dont know why, but Im starting to get the bug for a .50 bad.....Kinda dumb seeing that there is nowhere around here to shoot the darn thing.


I could sell my Night Vision, and take it out to my hunting area, but the longest shot is just shy of 500 yds and going to check targets would be a bitch...

Good point!...Ya know from the tallest building in the city I could easily put targets up ontop of Fredmeyer, The Lewis Street Bridge, and the Prison..


But checking on the targets would still be a pain.

Only in the daytime when traffic is bad wait until 03;00 am and there will be no problem at all checking targets.

Which reminds me, do you think you could rig up a cockpiece made out of it for me? Do you know how much it costs or how hard it'd be to armor the rear of my truck's cab?h.gif

BTW, KLM, it's a specially hardened steel alloy, I believe. Interestingly enough, the 50BMG AP round did little more damage than M855 rounds out of my poodle-popper.

going to seem out of context but this quote stems from a conversation we were having about writing tyranical servants.


"Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its waters. This struggle may be a moral one; or it may be a physical one; or it may be both moral and physical; but it must be a struggle! Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will. Find out just what people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue until they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress."
--Frederick Douglass, August 4, 1857

If you are using it on Soft tissue targets, I would say that it is nothing special, You could work your way in a little closer and use 338 lupa, or even .308


Dead is dead...


If you are talking about taking out equipment, well...Lets not fall into the Bradybunch's pocket.
It is a round, and that is all, It may be good at taking out a parked veh if you hit it in the right spot, but on a moving veh, you are more than likely not going to do much to stop it the first couple of shots.(If you have that much time).

Face it, A Bolt action single shot .50 rifle has a very limited range of uses, Best suited for a Long range target shooting. You will not be humping this thing through the woods much.

True, other cartridges would perform just as well against game or criminals.

X2



338 lapua? 225 grains usually? Its lost more than half its velocity and a third of its energy at 500 yards???

While I agree you aint humpin this thing anywhere (Unless you are Bunnyman! ), to give up the barrel length put you where a mucho smaller rifle would be more suited, then you do need to close that last 1000 yards, or more,and a semi gives up something in the accuracy department.

And dont you want to be able to drop satellites in orbit????

Link Posted: 8/26/2005 7:05:59 AM EDT
Sierra makes a 300gr missile for the .338. Kind of interesting but it doesn't approach the BC of a decent .50 round. What it does offer is a round that can be chambered in a light, accurate, relatively low recoil bolt action that can actually be carried to a zombie fest. Couple it with an lightweight M4 and you have two tools that can hit anything from 0-1500yds. It's on my list of things to get.

Not blasting the .50. It has its place and provides capabilities no other cartridge can. And for that reason you must get both

I have a strong wanting for the .50 now Thanks asshole you know who you are! But I sure would hate to have to hump that bitch if it ever came down to it.


That all being said, I think I have a new place to shoot that, but it is one of those types where you hump in in the morning to set up your targets and then come back a hour of so later to shoot the rest of the day and then go clean up your mess...You will need a good spotting scope and a good pair of hiking boots. this area can only support about 4 people, and it would be better suited for slow take your time type scoped bolt gun practice.

So what is the verified maximum distance possible at this range ?
