I'm away from home and have one day to provide 50 beo case dimensions to the state so it can be added to this year's approved calibers list.

I need SAAMI specs or something close to provide them. ANY help would be appreciated.

Even if someone was kind enough to put a dial caliper all over a cartridge they had lying around it would be enough.

Thanks in advance!!!

i talked to melissa and bill about this, but with the shot show this month, they are behind on orders. i only have two days before the additions are made to the iowa DNR list and i don't think they'll be able to fill my request ahead of all the customer backorders they have. besides, i don't want to be a pest to them...

a horse, a horse! my kingdom for a horse!

s.t.

on the reloading pdf it says:

Maximum Case Length 1.655 inches
Minimum Case Length 1.644 inches

oops... noticed you wanted more then just length.

How about this here? It is in mm but you can do the conversions.

Here is a little something too.

You could buy me a 50 beo pistol upper so I could use it to hunt deer.

uhhh... maybe you could watch me kill one with mine? close enough? if you want to, i'd let you field dress the first legal deer taken in iowa with a 50 beo? i'm a hell of a guy, huh?
