Re: .50 cal. varmint rifle query....
That cartridge sounds simply incredible! A 750 grain pill at 3000 fps? By the Gods, that's faster than the BMG isn't it?
I think the 500 A2 or the Peacekeeper represent the limit for me in a shoulder fire rifle. I've got to carry this thing around the Wyoming prairie!
It seems to me that a feller probably ought to call a 34" barrel the limit on a #1 rifle. I'm hoping to have this rig finish at 13-14 lbs.
Another question I have is scope selection. My first inclination would be one of the Leupold units. I'll need target turrets and plenty of eye relief. What are your recommendations regarding brand, model, tube diametre, and objective size?
Thanks for your input and the warm welcome.
