    I can't find any primers, powder, loaded ammo, etc. But I'm seeing a ton more 50 BMG being advertised than I can recall. Is that's all that's left, or are people buying BMG??

    I didn't know the AR platform was so versatile. I didn't know you could put a .50 on a 5.56 lower. Does anyone on here have one? How does it stress the retainer pins and the holes on the receiver?

    Summit still seems to have a pretty good stock of BMG ammo and its performance is pretty decent . AAA ammo also seems to be a good resource for reloading supplies.

    one guy I found posting on a .50 cal board said he'd shot around 10K rounds down his w/o problems.

    That's really neat. I might have to sell my riding mower to afford one...

    If I could afford 10K .50 bmg I wouldn't even consider this, but good to know.
