    Damn man, those videos are sweet. How much do rounds for that cost? I bet you really can't wait to start reloading.

    Between $3.50 and $7 depending on what I am shooting.

    Ya, Reloading is the only way I can feed that crazy thing...

    I looked at the gunshow in puyallup a couple weeks ago and 50bmg was only $1.50 or $1.75 a round I can double check the next show isnt until oct. but if your not set up to load yet I can pick some up for ya. Only reason I looked was a buddy has one and he lives back east I pick some up for him from time to time usually before Im heading over to see him.

    Well if the satellites are loaded with any RTGs (Radioisotope thermoelectric generator), you can use them to cook whatever you desire, although you might end up with sterility :p

    That thing is a beauty. Last weekend I was invited to a picnic for a nearby SF Assoc chapter. There were some active duty members of the 1st SFG out of Ft. Lewis on hand displaying some of their gear. Their .50 was semi-auto but otherwise almost identical. That thing is freaking heavy!

    Be careful with that gun show ammo or you could get the banana split affect.
