Default New project 50 cal.

I am sending my Grim Reaper off to Jeff and have him do a custom build with it .
Remington 700ml
Boyds stock
He will take and add :

50 cal Brux barrel 27 .50/.510
Asg Breech plug kit
Hunter nose bolt etc .
Then I will see how that big conical shoots in it .
The Remington actually shoots pretty good as is but I prefer a 1:24 twist so thats the main reason for the conversion
Plus it should have less felt recoil than the White

Sounds expensive to rebuild in that manner.
It's much cheaper to buy a 50-pk bottle of Advil and a tub of Ben Gay and keep those in your Possibles Bag at the range with your White ML, when shooting those 600gr No Excuses with 120gr of Blackhorn.

I sorta doubt using large amounts of BH209 with that bullet was the plan. A nice well sealed breach is a blessing when using more corrosive powders too. Westerns load data for 50/90 maxes out at 71gr by weight for a 475gr at over 27kpsi. Thats a compressed load btw.

Real black and most other subs would probably be much less peak pressure. Triple7 probably gets up there too.
