Re: i was thinking of buy a AR50 anyone own one
My experience with my AR50 is that when it is fouled with 3 shots, it will put the next two 5-shot groups in .5 MOA at 600 yards.
I have shot a 5 shot group at 600 that measured around 2" CTC.
I was shooting with Ric Horst in August (the Wyoming wind affects the .50 about like the Wolf) - if I remember right, I put the first three shots (off a bipod - with rear bag - in the dirt) into 4 inches at 1190 yards. The next two opened up the group to around 12" or so in the horizontal...
So I'd have to say that the AR50 is capable of phenomenal accuracy. Some scoff at groups like that, but I always counter with a challenge to find some other way to put 60,000 foot-pounds of energy into groups like these... [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
All of this is with my handloads, of course. YMMV.
