    I'm not at my computer at home, but can someone run a trajectory for me?

    3500 fps with a BC of 1.05 at sea level.

    Just interested in the drop at 1000 yards mainly, wind drift would be cool too.

    TIA

    I can't imagine the .50 Improved that'd run the AMax that fast - but here you go...

    Velocity 2570
    Impact -134.72
    Energy 11000
    Drift 25.13

    STL,

    Do a search on 50 FatMac, and 50 McMillan FatMac. I may be off a tad, but not much. [​IMG] I'd email you what I have here, but my email isn't sending for some damn reason.

    Brass is $2.50 each. This one's really gonna be fun! You won't be opening your 700 boltface up for this, or that new AR50! [​IMG]

    I saw a forum tonight, it was dedicated to this round! My brother was reading this stuff to me while I was working on a stock. When you get to the blue whale part it's getting pretty funny! [​IMG]

    Thanks for them numbers there. 11,000 FPE at 1000 yards, and 13 MOA elevation! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    We're thinking of building a rifle like the LAR Grizzly, only a tad bigger. Should be pretty basic in design.... all barrel. [​IMG]

    Brent,

    Have you taken a look at the 50/20mm pac-nor improved, you might even be able to get more power [​IMG]
