The .50 Browning Machine Gun (.50 BMG, 12.7×99mm NATO and designated as the 50 Browning by the C.I.P.) is a cartridge developed for the Browning .50 caliber machine gun in the late 1910s, entering official service in 1921. Under STANAG 4383, it is a standard cartridge for NATO forces as well as many non-NATO countries. The cartridge itself has been made in many variants: multiple generations of regular ball, tracer, armor-piercing (AP), incendiary, and saboted sub-caliber rounds. The rounds intended for machine guns are made into a continuous belt using metallic links.
The .50 BMG cartridge is also used in long-range target and anti-materiel rifles, as well as other .50-caliber machine guns.
A wide variety of ammunition is available, and the availability of match grade ammunition has increased the usefulness of .50 caliber rifles by allowing more accurate fire than lower quality rounds.
Looking for a .50 Cal rifle.
Not super picky about brand. AR50 would be great but I'm open to anything (not looking for blackpowder though).
If your looking to free up some extra cash before the holidays and have a 50 cal let me know!
I tried a muzzle loader and found it just isn't for me. Sold the gun, have some left over ammo.

Selling my Desert Eagle package. Comes with 2 7 round magazines, 200 rounds of ammunition, box/paperwork, and a leather shoulder holster. Price is firm, not looking for any trades. Would be okay with shipping FFL to FFL.
So, I've been on something of a lever-action kick this year, though the focus has shifted to an MG (based upon various discussions). That said, the idea of a lever-action in something .50-caliber, keeps bubbling to the surface. I know there were rifles in said back in the day, such as the 1886...
