    50 BMG

    I got my new 50 going recently, she uses my old Barnard GP action from my 416 Barrett, she is essentially a switch barrel now, I can easily put the 416 barrel back on her



    She has a 34" Trueflite barrel, Dolphin Chassis, T6 Terminator Muzzle Brake.



    I'm very happy with the brakes performance both with recoil reduction & lack of aggressive concussion which effects many effective 50 brakes.



    After initial testing accuracy looks pretty good & I'm looking forward to stretching her legs



    Gotta love a 50

    Depends on the load, I haven't wound it up with decent powder yet, 2650-2700 fps should be achievable

    Cut a slot on the other side of the action and get VC to pull it through
