1st build, 50 BMG, Looking for advice and info
I am familiar with component, shooting, and aspects of guns. I own a .338 mag that I have worked with for a while with benchrest, hunting, and reloading. I have decided that I would like to finally do a build with a friend who is also a private gun builder himself. He is not familiar with the 50 bmg.
I searched the net, and I am overwhelmed by the amount of information available that I am quite frankly, not sure where to start.
I know the 50 bmg is a hell of a round and is quite costly, so I have been doing some price research but run into a lot of dead ends. The .338 lapua is my next pick. The purpose is to have a 1000 yard + gun and that is it. No hunting involved, pure target.
Can anyone provide me with some useful links on the round, builds, and what to expect for a price range?
I would like to do a target rifle instead of a AR with a conversion? Any avanages ? etc.
I know I don't know everything and I have been grilled by gun nuts in the past on here because I am ignorant to some information, therefore, that is why I am asking, please take it easy on me.
Thank you all.
