    I wondered what it would look like shooting my Barrett CQ at night at the range. Wow was I surprized. "Blinding"......... This is a picture of one of my Long Range set ups. It's a Barrett M-82 A1 CQ with the M-107 Take down pins, Barrett Zero gap heavy duty scope rings topped off with a Nightforce 5.5+22+56 NXS scope with the NPR-1 Ret. In MOA. It's the regular Non high speed adjustment and NO Zero stop. In this picture I was shooting standard M33 Ball (661 GR) ammo. What a Flame thrower.. Thanks for looking.

    I've shot my Barrett CQ 3 times at 100 yards. WHEN I get proper trigger control it should be on the money. I was having trouble getting groups at first but after awhile I was able to shoot 1/4 moa at 100. Now the reason I was having trouble grouping is A. Because I don't know the gun quite yet. B. I was not directly behind the gun. I asked for some pointers from Barrett and because the gun has 2 recoil systems 1 the recoil buffer in the stock and 2 the recoil system in the barrel you HAVE to be right behind the gun for proper recoil management. That and I was told I might have a little trouble shooting at 100 yards because the 50 BMG doesn't start to stablize intill about 200 + yards. Other than that I love this gun but be sure to double upon earing protection because MAN it's LOUD.....Also I was just shooting M-33 661 GR ball ammo. When I start shooting 746 GR Thunder match ammo it will group wat better........Blacksheep1

    It's always interesting to me to hear someone say that a bullet is not stable at 100 yards. Seems to me that the bullet would start out stable and lose stability at longer ranges as velocity decays.

    Also, if the 660grain bullet isn't stable at 100, how far will the 746grain bullet need to go before it's stable?

    the second pic of the flamethrower is awesome!

    I agree Trebark. I don't always believe what I hear or see for that fact. The Bullet should be totally stable at 0 to at least 1500 + yards if not further. With me the only reason I not grouping right is because ( I'm ) not doing the job right yet. Or in other words my trigger control needs work. Heck I've only shot the the gun 3 times so I do not have trigger control down yet BUT I will. Oh yeah Barrett didn't tell me that the bullet doesn't stablize intill 200 yards.It was another .50 BMG shooter and he couldn't hit something if it was 5 feet in front of him. He thought he knew all there was to know but his walk didn't match his talk. So you are very right and I thank you for saying something. I should have been more clear in my post and stated I'd heard that from another shooter. Thanks Blacksheep1.

    SWEEEEEEEEEEEET! Really, not enough es in sweet for an 82-A1 =Great gun
    Had the privelage to shoot one many years ago but no funds to buy :-( The older models where MOA guns at best but what a blast! Ear plugs in your nose will keep the headaches down as well as fight of the nosebleeds=That brake is real effective:D
    Was shootin prairie dogs with a bunch of guys that decided to have a muzzle flash contest one evening. The short barreled 17Rem was inpressive but the 375-50BMG was the clear winner.
    Please keep us updated on your progress with the 50BMG. My shoulder can no longer take the recoil and the 2 BMGs have found different homes but its always great to hear others haveing fun with them!

    Although incidaries are not recamended in the 82-A1 I caught these pics. You can see in the middle pic the first Bluetip has impacted while the second one is in route=fun stuff!!

    Hello to all. Blacksheep 1 here. Well I'm having Barrett put a 29 inch barrel on my rifle now instead of the CQ 20 inch barrel. Now don't get me wrong I like the CQ but I want MAX range out of the gun so I decided to go full lenth barrel. It should be a bit smoother and not so loud. It will have way better performance and I'm going to be shooting Thunder Ammo's 770 grain solid Brass multi banded round. So I'll let you know how it go's soon. Thanks for looking ,Blacksheep1gun)
