If you had to choose one .50BMG rifle, what one would it be? In other words, which commercially available .50 is your favorite?

I've only shot one model. Are you looking for the least expensive, most accurate, most portable?

I picked my SHF R-50 because it was the least expensive bolt action repeater I could find.

You can get a great single shot target gun, but it may be very heavy and slow to reload. It all depends on what you want to do with it.

Talon was making demilled surplus "Plinking" ammo, which was about $1.25-$1.50ea. They got shut down. Some say by the EPA, some say OHSA, some say they weren't really demilling the ammo. I found a reloader at knob creek last spring who had some he made at that price. Good looking stuff, much cleaner than the talon ammo. Other brands will run closer to $3.50 to $6+ each. I just got a Lee 50 BMG press in September, but I still need a scale, tumber, etc.

Was that dealer Tim from OK? Swell guy. Can't be there this year. Duty calls.

I bought a bunch of Talon....about $1 per bullet. Gotta check my stash as I have gun for sale.
