Handguns are banned unless you have a special exemption for dispatching wounded deer at close ranges (For example when deer are hit by cars on the road)
Rifles are highly regulated - you have to demonstrate you are a fit & proper person as well as the need for each rifle. (This could be for example a .22 for rabbits, a .243 for deer etc. You can also have rifles for target shooting but have to be part of a club or association).
Thanks for the reply - but I think I should have posted my original message on the Gunsmithing page. Sorry if I have tied up this page with the wrong conversation.

Re: 50bmg build advice

lilja and mc millan make 2 of the best on the market. i wouldnt use that clam shell brake. you will need at least a 30 pound rifle. it was developed for artillery. the KDF and newer type brakes are the best. my 50 is 15 pounds w/o scope but with a short 33 in barrel.



has dealt with 50s since the '80's
