Another new rifle arrived

Just got my latest Long Range gun, just a plinker.

I'm going to try it out on feral hogs as soon as I get in shape to carry it [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] .

It's a 50 BMG built by G-A Precision (George Gardner and crew of North Kansas City, Mo.) The ammo is from AAA as I don't believe I want to reload for this thing. (Just yet anyway!)

Dave,
Another Gnats Ass masterpiece!! I have some nasty pills for that toy, 750 grain toothpicks. Will get them to you with the other stuff - (they are taller than a loaded .308 Win. cartridge). Would like you to try the other optic on that boomer, would be a hell of a test. Hope to do that shortly.

That is a nice scope on your rifle [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img] Do you think 105 minutes of elevation will be enough...

Ian

Sure, I'll try some other bullets, gotta get a reloading press for this thing first.
George helped pick out the scope, it's the 5.5 x 22 with NPR2 reticle.

The rounds I'm going to try/use are 705 grain "Harlow" bullet (solids).
I'll probably shoot the thing in a few hours, gotta find a suitable backstop.


HH .338
It's a McMillan action (single shot), 30 inch barrel and another 4 inches of muzzle brake.
It weighs 29 pounds as seen in the picture. The stock is also McMillan and the scope is the NightForce.
Bipod is a modified M14 model.

The sand sock is filled with plastic "hobby beads".

Re: Another new rifle arrived

DAVE,
I recognize the scope, is that your first NXS? I have the same unit and it is superb. Shot a sub 1/4 moa group with it last week.
Seems to have better resolution than my 3.5-15x50, just a more snappy image. Looks about right on that fifty, I have one on my 40X, you might have seen it at the Badlands.

I was wrong about the 105 moa, that is in your other new scope.

Only suggestion I have would be Max-50's, big rig needs big rings. Have fun you lucky dog.
