    The Barrett .50 BMG was included in Arthur's Hall's list of the 10 manliest firearms of all time. See here:

  4. Seriously, who takes 15-20 seconds to cycle a bolt action rifle? What are you using if that's the case?

  5. 50 caliber sniper rifle

    Not to be nit-picky, but who can handle a rifle with a bore of four feet two inches? that is what a 50 caliber would be. Don't you mean a .50 calibre rifle? that works out to a half inch in diameter.

    Oswald supposedly shot Kennedy 3 times in less than 6 seconds. I know personally at the range I can chamber a round and fire it in WAY less than 15 seconds.

    I wonder what the recoil is like on one of these .50 cals. Any one have an idea?

    Supposedly is the key word here.

    don't think I quite buy that with a bolt action, then have to aim again after every shot.

    I've been told that with the muzzle brake, the recoil is similar to that of a 12 gauge shotgun.

    Previous versions of the .50 BMG Sniper Rifles did ot all have a magazine. Thus they were only single shot rifles. In the case of these rifles, yes, it could take 15 – 20 seconds to reload the weapon.

    The issue I had was when he said that the .308 was the standard round of the AK. The 7.63 x 39 (origonally the standard AK round) is not the same round as the .308 and he has enough experience that he should know that.
