Spent a few hours firing this weapon using incendiary at 500 yards at steel pipe. Single shot bolt action with match barrel and trigger. More accurate than the M82 semi auto and about the same recoil, maybe a touch more...a spikedriver. Like I say with all these Barrett 50s, every trigger pull is an event. Then had fun with the rest of the stuff we hauled out there...my Rem 700 Siggy 556 with ACOG and VTAC sling And topped off 3 days of range time with a .75 cal Brown Bess repo.
