Master Driver just poasted a link with a good example of a 50 cal with a bc of 1+. The A-Max is another. I have read fourms where the 50 cal guys talk about 800 grain "Bore Riders" . I am sure that there are a lot more. I am not involved in the 50 in any much $$$ for me at this time.....But someday, I would love the have a custom built on the new BAT action.

If the anti's start up may be sooner, rather than later!!!

    I think any of them will get it done well.

    I quess if you go to 2000 m then we are in a whole new league !

    I have not heard much positive or negative about the 416 m99 as far as accuracy goes. Do not believe everything you see on future weapons about cold bore shots at 2500 ! Editing is a great tool for making cold bore shots !

    Why not just go buy a M 200 CT and have the ultimate in cool ?

    ( PS I love the badass look of the INTERVENTION ! )

    I think you would be better off getting Kirby or Shawn to build a 338 AM or 375 AM with a great accuracy guarantee. I'm not sure what the guys in Arco ID guarantee their big guns to produce ?

    Good luck. Either way it should be exciting !

    With each step in the bush, you are a step closer.

    The Model 200 is cool looking I will give you that. However it is to heavy for hunting. The model M310 R is a better choice and nonly at 7.5 kg.
    I am also now considering a 375 CheyTac maybe by Black Diamond Rifles, they seem to offer a fine rifle well capable of +1000m shoots.

    I have shot a lot of 50 cal stuff. I taught ballistics and marksmanship at 1st. Marine Division Sniper School in the early 90's. I have shot everything from ball ammo to 1 B.C. bore riders, steel bullets, half hard bronze, etc. I do not enjoy shooting them, they are too loud, the muzzle blast always made my haed hurt, most are not very accurate, and those that are, are too heavy.

    I have an EDM's arms 408 Cheytac. It is about as big of a rilfe as I want to shoot much.

    I think you should look at one of the big Allen mags, the new 416 that Black Diamond has, and an EDM's rifles (check their web site) then go with one of them. That way you not only have the super magnum, but more importantly a quality built accurate rifle.

    Simply not possiable the heavier, larger diameter 50 will hit harder . It is momentum that transfers not KE. Remember Newton's 3 Laws Of Motion they deal with momentum, momentum tranfers and acceleration, they do not deal with energy relationships
    range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot
