Time to get some life going in this forum.
Who's got one, what is it, and what are you running in it?
If you are reloading, tell your recipes.
I have a Barrett 99. Bought this model because I had planned to use it for LR elk, and use 750 gr A Max's. The mag fed model limit oal, and was worried if I found the oal sweet spot, the may not fit in a mag.
Got everything I need except the press and dies. It became a back burner project.
I have plenty of ball ammo, so when I do decide to haul it out, we can still play.
I had a 6.5-20x50 Leupold LR on it, but moved that scope to my LR-308. It now wears a 4.5-14x50 Leupold that sits in Barrett adjustable rings.
Here's my wife fixin to send one.

That has always been one of my favorite choices for a .50. Supposedly they were 'invented" or designed by the CIA for use in Central America.

When you get set up for reloading, pull apart ten M33 cartridges and weigh 1) the projectiles and 2) powder. You may be surprised at the variations (projectiles, 630 to 670 grain variation & powder was /- 10 grains, IIRC).

That's because ball ammo was meant to land in a 'beaten zone'.

It's not all that accurate. It's been pretty much, a BOOM, and awe, thing.
I do have 750 A max's when I get serious about wanting to load and see what it'll do.
Pretty sure it's machine gun ammo.

At one point around ten years ago I had nine 50 BMG rifles. That would have made an awesome family pic.

I sold a bunch to buy NFA and now I am down to a few.

I have 2..A Barrett 82A1 and an Anzio single shot. I get at least one of them out a couple of times a year. Not loading yet, but I have everything I need. I'll try to get some pics up soon.

Have to thank Splattermatic for posting this for me. My soon to be 12 yr old behind his 50 BMG Bluegrass Armory Viper. Mini-me will kepp on putting them downrange until I stop the flow of ammo.

I think by the end of the year, I'm going to start loading these up, and see what I can squeeze out of my 99.

One thing I regret. Not getting a crankfire for the M2 before Emory quit making them. :cry:

I picked up 33 boxes of those way back when Gander Mountain was getting out of their online business. They had them heaped up on a table for $7 or $9 bucks a box. Can't remember, but somewhere in there. I think they are a bit more than that now. Still have a few boxes left.
