Yeah, but that .50 was on a mount! I didn't know he liked the .45/70. I'll have to take my Winchester out next time we shoot too...Here he is shooting the M2HB last Christmas:christmas2005_az.jpg

Gentleman, Let me tell you all that, that thing is awsome, I've probably put 100,000 rounds down range with one of those guns. I use to be a Infantry/ Machine gun instructor, and thats all I did was fire machine guns.Ryan Woody

Actually, I probably put more than that I'm thinking 5 yrs in the Corps, I would honestly say close to Millionand loved every single bit of it. The funny part is that isn't even the Machine gun I specialized in LOL, I specialized in a 240G (G=golf). Now that I've shot over million rounds for sure. I'd go though 10,000 in about 15 mins.Ryan Woody

That is the Dry weight. The belts of ammo are approx. 8 pounds each. I think the belts were in 100 round strainds, but very easy to connect together. The trigger pull was approx. 3 to 5 rounds each. about every 2 seconds it was really cool when you would put two guns together. We would try to make talking guns. #1gun 3-5 rd burst, #2gun 3-5 rd burst so on and so on.Ryan Woody

That's one monster round!
Jon's is a carbine length Browning... too hard on me! I once had an early Marlin 'Guide Gun', before they added the porting... that thing was a shoulder buster! Especially with the 405gr loads. I sold it off after only 1 box of ammo.I ended up buying a full-sized, crecent stock, octagonal bbl Winchester (USRA) re-issue. That one is a real pleasure to shoot. ;) It's the gun that got me interested in shooting big-bore rifles at long ranges! Unfortunately, it's been packed away the last three years since I moved, and I've mostly been shooting the .50bmg stuff.You guys at least inspired me to dig it out of the vault for a pic! :angry: Now, where'd I put that .45/70 ammo!win1886_00.jpg
