almost here....
 
only 6 more days until I order this thing...

Unless anyone wants to chime in. This will be my first rifle of this nature, and I'm stoked. I have always wanted one of these. If you are a movie guy you might recognize it from Shooter, minus the camo paint job. This was his rifle he popped the spam can with that they tried to use to frame him.

Why .408 over .50 tho.

To be completely honest it is not the result of any research or anything else. Rifles like this are something I do not really know all that much about. I got into this one after being curious what they used in that movie, and it has been on my back burner for a few years. The way I see it when you get into this type of thing, does it really matter? Unless zombies really do show up i can't see ever really using it for it's intended purpose.

Part of why I posted here, I'm sure you will all rip me down and educate me until i do the right thing.

I have no idea what that gun is but have a lot of fun with it. :o

The only problem I see is the price of ammo. But if you can drop that much on the gun, then that shouldn't be a problem.

I won a lawsuit settlement in the area of $112k post-taxes/fees. I decided to pay off the house and buy a toy. I want to learn to reload specifically for this purchase.

Kudos on that all around. Good luck! Reloading would really be a great option there.
