I've been kicking around the idea of a .50 cal of some sort.
Spending limit of $3500

First thing first. A BMG is out, unless I find a INSANE deal.

I was thinking along the lines of a Beowulf or possibly an Armlite.

I won't be shooting this much at all. Just one of those, "yeah I have that"

Suggestion, comments?

I've been looking into this myself, too. For an AR-15, my preferred .50 caliber would be a .458 SOCOM. It makes sense in my head, I promise. Second choice, for an AR-10, there's a cartridge based on the WSM cases that uses .510" bullets, though its name escapes me at the moment. Both of those would be top picks of mine, as I'd be strictly reloading them, which might not work for everyone.

I've been looking at socoms (not that I have the money now, but no reason not to be informed)... I know it's not a fiddy, but still very promising.

Otherwise, I fall back to gunner's post :)

i have a beowulf. it's cool. you can buy a tactilite 50 BMG upper and put it on any AR lower. it's a 5 month back order. you need to put $500 down and pay the rest when it's ready. mine's being shipped Oct 16!

How bad is this thing to shoot? Kicks like a 12ga I'm told?
This is basically an AR in a .50, so my stock needs to be pinned and my muzzle break welded in place?

I have this AR lower laying around, can I just pick up and upper and some mags and call it a day?

I would much rather a .338 lapua! And you can buy this Barrett It goes for $3999 MSRP.
Im with this guy. 50 cal is certainly an "i have it" thing. IMO the .338 is the practical alternative.

Recoil and kick is not bad, kinda like one of my 20 gauges.

Here, go shopping... Alexander Arms :cool:

Been shopping ordering the upper friday :D
I have gun stores telling me its going to kick horrible. I mean, I've shot 200 rounds of trap form 12ga and 16, I know I was sore but I don't plan on shooting that many in a night with the .50.
