How many of us Carolina boys own a 50 bmg rifle or Ma duece?

I'm planning on buying mine in the next couple months and in preparation I ordered the LEE Clasic cast press/50 BMG reloading kit earlier this week and it arrived todayJason

I would buy one but I think it would be senseless to own one being that I cant seem to find any ranges that are over 300 yards.

Most guys go up to Butner to shoot long distance. There is also another place around called "Eagle's Nest" or something like that

don't get me Wrong, shooting them at short ranges does kinda defeat the purpose of having a 50 BMG rifle. but regardless of the distance that you are shooting at be it 100yds or 1000yds+

they're really fun to shoot, something about chambering a round that weighs a little over 1/4 pound and the muzzle blast blows the hats off the guys on either side of you at the range or punching 1/2 Diameter holes in 1" steel plate like it was a piece of cardboard.

I'm addicted to 50's because of my friends who own and let me shoot them on a fairly regular basis.


Dsking, my range is only 100yds and the 2 2" thick plates behind the 100 yd target stand stop the 50 in its tracks.

Would one of these be sufficent for home protection? Would over penatration be an issue?

Hey SCRAMBLD I have THE ULTIMATE ACCURACY 50 BMG and a can of brass needing reloading. I'll be at the show in Charlotte looking for more ammo for the smaller stuff

Butner range is limited to 30 caliber. Hawk's Ridge is limited to 40 caliber.

Reeldoc,

I'm not argueing, but I know for a fact that there has been atleast one 50 BMG Match at Butner. I talked to 2 of the Participants a month or so later. I suppose it was a one time thing or a special situation.
