What the fuck
Is there a video of it? I've heard this before and it sounds like complete bullshit.
I dont believe it...
He spewed some nonsense about a .50 cal being illegal to use in warfare because of that claim. Sounds like he got some info from antis.
I'm a little over 40 min in and I'd say this guy is an anti. He starts off the documentary and you sort of get the feeling like this guy is an anti that's good at trying to seem objective, but he slips more and more as the documentary progresses. It becomes more obvious that he's a gun-blamer.
This guy took a few cues from Michael Moore, but he is much less intellectually dishonest than Moore.
aren't they being banned or something in places, so they came out with some .413413 round or some bullshit that is actually more accurate to 1.5 miles
I have the same conversion for my mini14, but I have a 90rnd drum and a beta mag.
No they came out with smaller rounds because 50cals are a bitch to lug around
50cals arent supposed to be used on people same thing with MK19's seen a 40mm grenade hit a person thought and not blow up sure fucked up his day though. It has knockdown power
Also mythbusters did a test on this and its falls
I want to go out to Knob Creek.
He said the .50 bullet travelling by you could take your head off, not just concussion or shock wave.
Well that is true that it can take a head off it can split a body in half
The summary at the end was absolutely rediculous.
NY is trying to ban them..but who gives a fuck about NY
I'm sorry, but that's 100% bullshit.
My cousin is a retired Marine Corp sniper. He spent a lot of time in Iraq behind an M82. I've talked to him quite a bit, even about this topic. The M82 is used primarily against material targets, but if an enemy is standing in front of a designated target, he's fair game (two birds with one stone, and whatnot)
.50 bmg is illegal in CA.
That's in Commiefornia. .416 Barrett
That's the first Knob Creek video where i've seen a black person.
Some Frenchie also came up with the .510DTC that has the same ballistics as the .50BMG. It uses a BMG case that's been shortened and had the shoulder reprofiled, so pretty much the same thing.
What about the .408 CheyTac? I thought that was the .50BMG's future replacement.
I still love that one company that makes a bolt-action .50BMG upper for an AR-15 lower so it can be legally used in states that ban the Barrett. Big to the govt.
Well yea just like a 40mm grenade isnt suppose to be used on people or AT-4's etc but if its all i got its what im using
Its primary purpose isnt people that better for you?
Didnt an oter have one of those keyholing at 300yds?
McMillan will make you a .50 cal.
Beats me, but most likely. I can't see it being much more than a novelty, especially with that short barrel.
must batter the living fuck out of the lower
