Sorry I'm not versed in weaponery , and am not sure what BMG is . I am aware of your special interest so am I safe to assume it's Bigfoot's Mighty Gun? :dunno:

No, just no.  Not unless it's a 50BMG IMP

Oh my goodness, stop, just stop.  :chuckle:

ROFL
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

 We should probably establish a 600yd minimum as well, just to keep it sporting.

The 50 BMGAI..........   the training wheels it will take to make the leap to 25mm (which coincidentally might be a good minimum chambering for elk).    :tup:

50BMG is just a big 30-06 and 30-06 sucks! 25MM should be the minimum!

Did you know that there is a man-carried, shoulder-fired bolt action rifle chambered in 25mm AA?

Seriously.   Manufactured by Barrett.   But I think still only available to military.   

Sad, because it would make a great Blacktail brush gun.
