    I will be getting one shortly. The ballistics on this calibur are incredible. The recoil for this gun is also comparable to that of the typical 223 because of all of the recoil reducers stock!

    Yeah really... who would want a rifle that's effective at the same ranges as .50bmg but has flatter trajectory and weighs half as much. :greddy:

    you can achieve basically the same ballistics with a .338 Ultra Mag for a hell of alot cheaper :dunno: http://www.snipercountry.com/InReviews/338UltraPoorMansLapua.asp

    I prefer the .50BMG, cheaper to feed.

    Yes, I even have 160 acres to shoot on and can only manage a 400 yard shot unless I want to chop down a bunch of trees.
    So a .50 would be nice but I couldn't really use it to its limit.

    It's 'limit' is rediculous.
