    Default Who's afraid of the big bad 'wulf?

    Finally got this thing put together after getting my parts slowly together for about TWO YEARS!! I really like how this rifle turned out. Handy, pretty lightweight, and looks great. So who wants to load me up some .50 Beowulf?

    I would love to say that I duracoated this myself, but it was a hydro-dip from Paul Reed (member preed on here) at Alaska Hydrographics.

    Very nice...and very humble to have some one else do the graphics for your rifle!
    I hope it shoots as good as it looks.

    You and me both, BEE!! I've been called a Kryptek Freak/Fanboy/Whatever more than once and wanted to have this pattern badly! I could've tried to paint it, but I'm not sure I could've pulled it off

    What do you consider 'light'? I was looking at the RRA .458 Socom, at 8+lbs I didn't think it light.
    I may be slow, but I get where I'm going!

    You come up with dies, brass and bullets and I'll load all you want Kyle. I may even be able to get my hands on a mold and cast you some bullets, I know I know no cast in a gas gun, but Mitch has shot piles of cast in his M14, just gotta cast em hard.

    I'll have to get it on a scale when I get home. It sure felt pretty handy though! With an optic it'll be in that range no doubt...

    My bench is also sitting there neglected if you want to roll your own. I could talk to the wife and arrange access to the shop.

    Yeah, I'm curious to try some different combos! I like the idea of a cast bullet....

    Live the pattern! What gun is that? I've never heard of a .50 AR type rifle

    Going to be fun. Can't wait to shoot it BTW, I have a 12x18 2" thick piece of steel that I want to whack with that thing.

    Awesome looking gun! I'm curious how well the dip coat holds up to Alaska's brush.

    Nice... is there going to be a scope, or just open sights? Whatever, I'm sure it will get the job done... very nice

    Your welcome to my bench, just give me a holler. I have the #6 shell plate for my Hornady progressive but not the dies. You can set it up and load 100 rounds in an hour, after its set up it will flat crank out the ammo. Great looking rifle there!

    The 50 Beowulf is an Awesome round, inside 100 yards it will take down pretty much anything.

    It was a toss up for me between the 50 B and 450 BM. I decided to go with the 450 BM because it fit my needs a bit better (hits harder at longer range).

    AWESOME camo though, id love to see my hunting AR look like that.

    Me too. It's been clear coated with Duracoat, so it should do OK. Not expecting it to look perfect forever, though...

    I'm leaning toward a low power variable. Something like the Trijicon TR24G or a Leupy of similar flavor...

    Very nice looking rifle and a very capable round. I like it!
