A lot of 872 & a 40" barrel=its your shoulder!!Haveing a hard time finding out,the darn thing keeps blowing the crony apart.
Seriously its not the velosity that gets the job done with a 50,its the heavy,high BC bullets.Most competitors are going 2500-2700fps
Why is it important to get 3000 out of something ya aint got=CJ

Well lets see 233gr of H50BMG is pushing a 750gr bullet @ 2800 and 248gr of H50BMG is pushing a 655gr bullet @ 3029 according to my load data.. so getting a 755gr bullet goin 3000fps is prolly possible but the question is will it be worth it lol

It probably would not be worth it, but I checked on the energy at it was close to 16000 foot pounds. But completely not needed. Just something fun to shoot for. No I don't have one and if I ever did it would be years at least.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
