Re: 510 Allen Magnum finished after some long nights this weekend...

Buffalobob,

Many ask me the same thing about standard 50 BMGs. The answer is SHOOT THEM. That in and if itself is worth having one. If you have not shot a big 50, you are really missing out in life. I will warn you though, if you shoot one, you will probably own one!!!

With alot of rifles you know you have some power such as the big 338s and other rounds... With the big 50 cals, not only do you know you have ALOT of powder at your finger tip, everyone within 500 yards knows it as well!!!

At 50 yards you can still feel the shock wave hit your chest from the blast of a 50 cal and one of these brakes. Just have to feel it to believe it. Watching someone shoot one of these rifles prone is almost as fun as shooting it yourself, especially in taller grass. It is just laid flat for 20 yards off both side of the brake. When they came up with the word AWSOME, it was after watching a 50 cal go off with a big muzzle brake!!!

Yep, the 50 moa base will be for zeroing at 1500 yards and going out past 2000 yards. The USS Xotic will allow you to dial in for most ranges from 1/2 mile out to well past 2000 yards with its 105 moa of vertical adjustment along with using the mil dot reticle for reference holds.

Eaglet,

Hey, glad you made it home. I guess I better get a package headed your way!!! Almost finished, just have to clean up the bedding and get her live fire tested.

Nope, your about 2.88 miles out of my range!!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]!!

Re: 510 Allen Magnum finished after some long nights this weekend...

Hired Gun,

I hear you on that one!!

As far as they are concerned, this is a paper puncher or chuck rifle. The nice thing about chucks is if you hunt them on steep cliffs all you have to do is get close and the rock slide will generally get the ones you miss [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]!!! Did I mention API rounds. Just kidding, there will never be an API or tracer fired though this match grade barrel. They are fun to play with but not accurate at all!!

I'm glad it's not only me that has turned into a kick sissy by efficient muzzle breaks installed by Kirby. That Kirby feller will mess you up. I'll bet you can't shoot a factory 7 lb pull trigger anymore either. He ruined me on that too [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Headspace is 4 thou shorter then the standard BMG so standard BMG ammo can be fired in this chamber safely and accurately.

You mean it can chamber standard 50 BMG ammo? If so, it won't be California legal (the biggest market).

My mother in law has a flower garden next to my shop. It was about 15 feet from the muzzle of my 510 AM when I touched it off. Lets just say the flowers were much fuller and prettier earlier this morning!!! There were flower petals blown over 20 sq yards!!! I may get a chewing for that but at least I know the brake works amazingly well.

She didn't complain about the blast? Which Allen Mag made her deaf?

When shooting my 50's, I cram 29 dB foam filters all they way into my ear canal the top off with my 24 dB Peltor Tactical 7s electronic muffs (53 dB total Noise Reduction) - even so, after 10 - 15 blasts, I've had enough. I've been told the concussion is going thru my sinus (which the muffs don't help). Even tho I'm very used to shooting a 50, I get shell shocked every time I fire at a match (with 50's to the left and right firing at random).

I made this graph of Dan's data on change in barrel len v. change in velocity (Dan even thanked me [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]) Going from 35" to 40" should yield another 125 FPS (with standard 50 BMG), your larger capacity case should see a bit more.

Will you be going to a faster twist for the big pills? I just took delivery of a 9.5 twist 50 BMG (my other three fifties are the standard 15 twist). My fast twist 50 was built for sabots, sub-sonics and Richards Kilo-grain projectiles.

Are you planning on using the AR-50 as the platform on future 510 Allens?

Very cool gun. I guess four 50 BMGs is not really enough, I need to start saving for Kirbys King Kong.
