Now all the sudden 50 BMG is not BIG ENOUGH!!

I have a bug!! and I got to make a couple calls!!
If its possible to reload these myself I maaaayyyyy consider getting one!! $9800 I doubt it!! But its fun to shoot!!

A buddy got one and we scared the locals!!

I have a rule!! If I can't reload for it I will not buy it!!

Excpet 22's!!! Also shot a 408 Cheytac!!

Had photos but the little boy figured out how to get the memory card out and now I cannot find it and he's not telling me where its at!!

You could get a 12lb Napoleon. you'd be able to reload, too

Does california know about these rifles, yet? Probably not well known about right now. That is a HUGE friggin rifle, though.

Terry,

When you get that Corbin .30 caliber bullet making setup, I'd be interested in testing the finished product.

Talked to Mr. Corbin and they are back ordered!! Looking at the middle of next year unless I want to pay the premium time for his shop to make it!

No the order is correct!! I was all excited to shoot it and after pulling the trigger I was blown away by the muzzle blast next to the 50!! Set of a couple car alarms in the driveway!!

Over .50? It's probably gonna get classed as LBDD by the BATFinks... But it's definitely one to drool over.

Web site puts max range at 5000. I suppose a steady hand could get 4000 to 4500. Heck, even getting hit by that pill hand thrown at twenty feet would probably leave a mark.

lol no doubt. I've seen the dummys at gun shows they would definatly leave a mark. one has to wonder what the use of it would be? I mean other than finding the thickest pieces of steel at the scrap yard to see how many inches it will penetrate. that thing might even blow a bear in half

Suas, how's it ignite? Most military (And all american) 20mm made in the last 20 or so years is Electrically-fired. Is this one of those deals where they drill a primer-cup and use .50BMG primers?

Not 100% sure but they appear to have 50 bmg primers in them!
