for deer hunting, etc.
50 BMG -- .50 cal. Browning Machine
Gun. Note that this is a steel bullet vs. the others above are lead.
This is because it is intended to be used against "hard targets" such as
planes, armored vehicles, etc.
This is a relatively inexpensive conversion.
There are a few a bit cheaper, but they have some serious deficiencies.
A few notes on things to look for on an
Are they using a good barrel? Some use
the finest, some use surplus.
Is it a "real" bolt-action gun?
Do you open the bolt with the handle, pull it back, the spent brass ejects,
you slip in a new round and close the bolt? Many have you pull the
whole bolt out of the end of the gun, sometimes the shoulder pad comes
with it. Some have you push out the pin and pivot away the lower
to load. Some even have a "bolt" that must be screwed in and out
with a crank handle!
Is the receiver machined out of a block of
steel, or is it some tube stock with a big fat cylindrical bolt inside?
Is the barrel guard really thick enough for
all the abuse of a heavy gun being wrestled around?
Is the muzzle break a well designed weldment,
or just some tube with angled holes drilled in it?

misinformation, and false logic about why these guns are pure evil, check
