Might not stay in your stand long after your first shot, lol have to strap yourself in real good.Well the thing is, they are in no way practical for real hunting. Who wants to lug a 4 foot long, 38 lb rifle up into thier tree stand ? Hornady does make a 750gr A-Max though.
Yeah, because you need a 750gr, .50 caliber bullet, at 2600fps, with over 11,000ft lbs of energy, to expand, but hold together well, in order for it to kill...How popular is the 50 bmg. I mean everyone knows what it is but why if it so popular is there only few bullets for it ?.I want to see some 50 bmg accubonds . or similar
Sounds like fun. What's your pal's address? Does he still have ammo left over?Lots of bullet choices for the 50 bmg. Hunting isnt practical unless setup on a mountain somewhere. The gun is absolutely awesome to shoot. A rich friend of mine has one with alot of ammo that he allows me to shoot up for him. A barret with the bors system. I got to cut a tree in half with one on his land. One of the best days in my life! The gun blew snow into my pants while I was shooting from the muzzle blast.
Recoil alone might shake the pine cones out to the top of tree when you pull the trigger on that big bad boy and the squirrels will be real mad at you.Might not stay in your stand long after your first shot, lol have to strap yourself in real good.
It would be very practical for those 1000+ yard hunters lol.
Post a recoil chart then.
Bullet weight in grains 750
Velocity in fps 2900
Powder charge in grains 256
Weight of firearm in lbs 35
Recoil Impulse in (lbs sec) 14
Velocity of recoiling firearm (fps) 13
Free recoil energy in (ft/lbs 92 divide that by 50% or more for a muzzle brake which could give you (depending on the brake) 30-40 ft lbs recoil
