I am talking about the base model m82a1 rifle. I have seen pictures and videos of the new ones and they seem smaller than the older ones or the rifles from the movies, TV or the first ones that came out on the regular civilian market.

They can easily cost over $12,000 with a scope. The cost to reload is very expensive. The brass and bullets and powder use is costly. The primers are $1.50 each or more. It can cost $6.00 a round to reload. They are wonderful toys. We have a 2,000 meter range with lots of iron to shoot. It is defiantly an expensive sport. Try hiding this expense from your wife?

wife,....."well you're in the doghouse now. tell Fido to scoot over!"

I could deal w that in the short term as long as she doesn't feed you the same stuff.

Too True but as Shakespeare so aptly put it, "Every Dog will have his Day !"
