Pretty cool. I don't know much about this cartridge. It’s great for hogs and it well probable work on an average black bear, but I couldn’t tell you how well it will work on a large brown bear. Double tap that rib cage and see what happens. LoL
Definetly high on the "cool" chart in my book!
Very cool! Im not real familiar with that round though. What are the specs?
Neat gun. If I recal the "knock down" numbers weren't as impressive as a lot of other readily available rounds. Sure would be fun for deer hunting!!!!
But the cool factor is off the chart!!

Nice. Be sure to post accuracy, penetration and reliability stats once you've shot it a few times. I've got a 450 Bushmaster upper on my wish that I'd love to get.

Make sure you turn the red dot scope on before you shoot the charging griz.
Thanx everyone for the comments..The 50 Beowulf was developed by Alexander Arms for the US military to stop charging vehicles by blowing out there engine blocks at close range..After making his weapon readily available for civilian purchase it was used on many large and dangerous game throughout the US including Alaska..The 50 Beowulf was given to Alaskan Gov Sarah Palin as present from the NRA a few yrs back..check the link here http://us4palin.com/a-tribute-to-the...ican-rifleman/ ..Over the years the 50 Beowulf has become quite handy among most riflemen in montana and other heavily wooded states that consist of mountain lion and Bears.It has been known to kill most large creatures within a short range of 150yards or less anything further than that, the round starts to loose its velocity and will drop very quickly..I have chronographed my 10.5" SBR with the following rounds below.. The 350GR Solid Brass Spitzer round was tested at 1650fps with 2710lbs of energy a little better than your Smith&Wesson 500 Magnum........And the 400GR Hawk Round was tested at 1744fps at 2805lbs of energy..The accuracy out of the gun is very impressive within 150 yards anywhere between 1/4" - 1" groups..The 50 beowulf was compared similar to the 450 marlin using heavy loads..here are some more pics below..
here is a video on Discovery Channel of the 50 Beowulf
Thats an awesome SBR!!
I have such a hard time trying to decide which outdoor activity to do every chance I get!! Living in AK is a mental challenge
I think I need to add this to my wishlist...... Sound like this round is putting out about as much energy as the 45-90 and the 450 Marlin. I think it'll be a good brush gun for ya.
I just got my .458 SOCOM put together for spring bear baiting. Of all the big bore uppers I chose .458 for bullet choices and compatibility with my 45/70 when reloading. I would be very interested in the accuracy.

I absolutely Love shooting my 450 Bushmaster.
What a Monster stopper.
Have fun with your new Rifle.

I guess we have a generational gap!
Only "AR" I would own, very cool round
