Default Steyr HS.50 Cal .50 BMG

Hello everybody,

does anyone here have experience in shooting rifles cal .50 BMG?
What about the recoil? And what kind of scope would you recommend?
I bought a single-shot Steyr HS .50 rifle some weeks ago, but I´m still looking for an Hensoldt 6-24x72 scope (and for a suitable shooting range - that´s not so easy in Germany ).


Your´s

Bernhard

Cool looking rifle! It would be fun to give that a try at loooooong range.

I'll probably never have one because I can get three cheeseburgers for the price of 1round.

It would be pretty cool to have one, I just don't see how it's very practical. Not only are the guns expensive, the ammo is like $5 a shot. Plus check out this recoil, the shot makes the camera flicker:

I'll tell you what kind of looks you'll get, ones of disgust and bewilderment. A couple of these tools roll in to a local range and uncase a couple of these beasts and setup in the middle of the whole line. Not once do they consider setting up on an end where the muzzle blast and noise becomes less of a distraction for all other shooters. Add to that the fact the range is only 200 yards max kind of defeats the point of having a rifle like this to begin with. It's seems to be the equivalent of the 15" lifted crew cab heavy duty "compensation" truck for most people.

That is beautiful! I was lusting after one of those not long ago, but my skills don't justify that purchase. I wish you good luck finding a nice place to practice with it. A container of flour would make a funny target, i think.

Can understand that smile though...bet you can't wait to find an appropriate (and large enough) range, Bernhard

Another picture, just to show the size of that rifle. At the moment I´m looking for cal .50 BMG ammunition.
Yes, indeed, I can´t wait to shoot that little monster...
