    What would it take to get a 773 grain bullet to go 3000 fps?

    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 [​IMG]

    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. [​IMG]
