    As the titles says im trying to find .510cal projectiles for my 50bmg from sellers in Australia. Can anyone help me out? Specifically after Hornady A-max's if possible, but will appreciate info on where to get any brands. Preferably somewhere that sells boxes( so i can get them at a decent price). Also does anyone know what the procedure is to be able to import some from America? Thank you, Aus50bmg.gun)

    Hello 50!

    I'm envious because in queensland we cannot have a .50 cal. But as for where you can get projectiles try

    Home <-- This link is to Predator Projectiles, they CNC lathe the projectiles for high BC's
    http://www.thalesgroup.com.au/pdfs/50calballf1ammo.pdf, ADI make these, which I imagine you could order through your local gun store.
    Magnum Sports*::*Reloading*::*Projectiles*::*Hornady Handgun Bullets*::*XTP/XTP-MAG Bullets*::*50 Cal - A-Max projectiles
    Forbes Wholesale Pty Ltd, these guys sell .50 BMG primers and hopefully could get the other gear.
    Horsley Park Gun Shop - these guys stock the reloading presses
    Hope this is helpful, most gun stores should stock it or get it in...if they are a good store,

    Cheers,

    CZ

    A-MAX projectiles are available from BMT in Melbourne, 03 9646 4211, ask for Ben. He is also producing match grade .50 BMG ammo in packs of ten (10) using the Hornady A-Max. He can supply full ballistic data on loaded ammo. Ammo based on fully prepared brass.

    BMT are also currently producing .416 Barrett ammo for the McMillan LHR 416 soon to be hitting our shores!!!!! Design is based on the famous TAC 50.

    Hi there,

    I have a suggestion for you. I can obtain GS Custom 720gr target projectiles in .50 calibre. These are a CNC lathe turned solid copper projectile with a BC of .917. They are a South African made projectile, have 4 or 5 boxes of 25 for sale.

    These are a target bullet only, and not designed to expand.

    I am from Auckland, and can supply.

    GS CUSTOM BULLETS - SP LONG RANGE BULLETS

    You can email me at: michael.f@criterionfurniture.com if you would like to discuss.

    Regards,

    Michael.

    Hi, yes they do make .338 target projectiles. Please click the link below that takes you to the page on the GS Custom SP (target bullets).

    GS CUSTOM BULLETS - Recommended Use and Technical Data for SP Bullets

    As you can see some of the projectiles have very high B.C's. The .270 105gr at .519 is quite impressive!

    I will get back to you on a price on the projectiles.

    What twist is your barrel?

    Regards,

    Michael.

    Woodleigh make some .510" bullets for the Nitro rifles.
    They have some in 600 grain protected point, soft points that should make a pig sick. Or anything else for that matter.
    Designed for impact velocity of 2200 fps.

    Howdy Fellow 50 shooter, yeah, Woodleigh do a 570gn RNSP, I have had good accuracy in the BMG but drop like a brick past 500m. They are very hard, passing almost through a donkey @ 350m, they stop camels in their tracks though! Straight through goats @ 350-400m!

    Speer do a FMJ 650gn, also try Bertram, he does a 750gn FBHP. A-Max's are expensive & heavy.

    Good hunting,

    Mater Blaster.
