Has anyone seen these new .50 cal ar's? They are a short .50 cal rounds with a rim the size of a .223 so they use a std bolt. One I think is called a LW .499 but the other I can't seem to find. (I saw it at a gun show) The bullet looked the same but the guy said it was subsonic, and the LW .499 is much faster than subsonic. Could anyone shed some light on these rounds & upper's used for them? They look very interesting.

.50 Beowolf [url]http://www.alexanderarms.com/beowulf.html[/url] [img]http://www.alexanderarms.com/images/ammo.jpg[/img] Actually it uses a 7.62x39 AR15 bolt. I have had the pleasure to shoot a few .50 Beowulf rifles. It is [i]good[/i] stuff.

Thats the one! This one is a little different than the LW.499, it uses the .223 bolt and I thought this one did to so I'm glad you told me that. Do you know what this one has for a muzz. velocity? Also, how did you like it? I'm wondering which one is the better round, they are both very similar. Thanks!

From their website.... [b].50 Beowulf™ is designed to generate devastating stopping power. It combines the rugged reliability of the AR15/M16 style family of weapons with a purpose designed cartridge. This highly compact, lightweight and dependable weapon will deliver a 400-grain bullet at a muzzle velocity of 1800 ft/sec for overwhelming terminal ballistics. Alternative projectiles are available such as a 325 grain (1950 ft/sec), as well as projectiles for custom application (GMP customers only)[/b]
