I went target shooting this morning and had brass slinging all over the
place. First it was a Sig, then a Glock, then some 9mm I hadn't heard of
before. Then out came the Steyr Aug A3 and the M4. That was a load of fun.
The guy with the MP 5's didn't show up so we only had one full rock n roll
and no whispers.
Last of all, was a prototype 50 cal bolt action rifle. The cartrige casing
is shorter than a regular 50, with the whole cartrige (with bullet) being as
tall as a regular 50 cal cartrige casing. Some of the 'special' things
about this weapon are the 2730fps and 19.5# weight. The kick wasn't bad at
all, nothing like you would think for such a large gun. Didn't have a
bowling ball, but a jug of water didn't stand a chance (no wabbits around,
too noisey). The military has tested the gun a couple of times and likes it
so far. Takes a lot to put a new gun and cartrige on the military market.
I have video of the morning fun but won't have time till probably this
weekend to get any online.
