i saw the show last night and yes, the "cold bore" shot was emphasized plenty.i didn't quite understand the comparison between the 2 guns. it was like the other gun wasn't really zeroed at that range and the Barrett was.

I noticed the same thing, but BOTH rifles were Barretts. I also believe that the .50 wasn't zero'd identically to the new .416. Nothing will beat the Big 50 (and I love the .416s.....I have TWO Rigbys [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]) in terms of true firepower. IMHO, the new .416 Barrett is just being over-hyped. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

I'd rather have a .416 CheyTac (it's really a .416 PGW). [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
