    Found this on the net before and figured it may be of interest to some people here...particulary the new .50cal ammo. http://www.defence.gov.au/army/ (on the side list click on equiptment, then on the page it brings up click AW50F .50 Cal Anti Materiel Rifle)

    DEFENCE has acquired a .50cal anti-materiel rifle, adding to the marksman’s arsenal. The weapon selected from the trial is the AW50F – that is, Accuracy Weapon .50cal Folding Stock.

    Very cool. Maybe, if they save their pennies, they can get two of them someday.

    This is all reminicient (sp?) of when we only had 2 of the newest bomb ready for use. We made it work.

    It certainly makes a guy choose and place his shot.
