I was offered some .50 cal BMG ammo from the SHOT SHOW demo (They are firing Tuesday - I will have it in hand by Tuesday evening after night fire). They do not want to carry/ship it back.

Lake City M33 Ball (330 rounds maximum left over), Lake City Tracer (100 rounds maximum left over) and IMI M33 Barrett stuff in 10 round boxes (330 rounds maximum left over).

All brand new, not reloaded.

I just got rid of my .50 and can't use the stuff.

Contact me if anyone is interested in it (I am not looking to make a profit, just move it so my friends do not have to ship it back). It is more expensive to send the unfired stuff back to TN and VA.

I think it is around $3 per round. No tax or anything - it is already paid for. Again, they do not want the hassle of hazmat, shipping, etc.

I will split it up if necessary. Actual amount of ammo Tuesday.

Let me know if you are interested in it.

Contact me at: raytco@gmail.com

Thanks

Prices:

Brand new GI (not reloaded) Lake City M33 Ball (LC00 headstamp) $3.11 each
Brand new GI (not reloaded) Lake City M33 Ball (WCC90 headstamp) $3.03 each
Brand new GI (not reloaded) Lake City M17 Tracer (LC00 headstamp) $3.31 each
Brand new IMI (not reloaded) Barrett M33 (Barrett 50 headstamp) $3.31 each
HSM Moly 750 gr AMAX SPR (I do not know what this stuff is) $4.57 per round.

Everyone/thing is here. I just do NOT know the exact amount that will be left over.

I am no penny pincher. I just want to prevent them from sending this stuff back. I can absorb the .01 cent stuff.........

I guess this had to be factory new stuff to ensure correct bullet drop, elevation, tracer burn and ratio mps/pressure gain tests for the demo. It is hard to get this Lake City stuff factory new. The component stuff is out there but they could not use it for exact testing. I wish I had my Barrett now!

Thanks

Variable, why did you shitcan your Barrett?
Link Posted: 2/6/2006 4:31:26 AM EDT
It sat in my safe doing nothing.

I shot it once a year.

I figured I'd like the money elsewhere.

That is a dangerous weapon of mass destruction you have there pieeater!

According to the Vilolence Policy Center (VPC) the Barrett .50 is the terrorist weapon of choice, and it is capable of bringing down a commercial airliner from 36,000 feet, while traveling 550 miles per hour, from five miles away. That's why it MUST be banned!!!

The VPC is the premier weapon knowledge organization, filled with gun and ballistic experts that know what's best for all of our safety. I saw the interview about the horrific effects of the .50 cal. Barrett on 60 Minutes so it all must be true. I'm very, very scared now...

With all joking aside, varible knows his shit and the ammo he has looks like a great deal, If I had a .50 (and believe me I wish I did) I would have scooped everything up already.....



ETA: Hey pieeater: Your wife is gonna' kill you if you scratch the dining room table with that thing!!!

According to the VPC the .50 cal. Barrett is capable of the 2nd pic:

DC 10 Before Barrett .50



DC 10 After Barrett .50

Wouldnt shooting a plane at 36,000' with a .50 be like shooting a crow at 200' with an AR. I got to see that.

I think you can hit a man size target on the whitehouse lawn from a building in Virginia too.

Buddy made a mistake with the Barrett ammo price and sent me the difference in the form of a money order.

Brand new IMI (not reloaded) Barrett M33 Ball ammo (Barrett 50 headstamp).

NOW: $2.48 each.

The new price reflects the difference with his refund to me.

Thanks
