Default Picked up a 50 Beowulf

Just picked up a 5o Beowulf this weekend. It included an older EOtech and 120 rds plus rerlaoding dies and 50 cases plus 350 projetciles.
It also comes with a VERY NICE aftermarket pistol grip.

So I felt I was getting a lot of value especially since I didn't pay a crazy price.

I will likely attach a VFG as well to manage the recoil.

Also found some Ammo for only $1.5 a round and ordered a 100. This i think is quite fair as quality 5.56 these days often costs a Buck a round.. And a50 Beowulf is a LOT more bullet.

I will likely pre zero the sight on another AR using regular Ammo then attach the EoTech on the same spot on the picatinny. I expect this will get me close. Then I will finish zero on this gun

At short to medium ranges the ballistics will not be crazy different especially since a bullet like this will only be shot a big things, like rampaging water buffalo, aliens or such.

Ok now for the gun porn:

I doubt you have to be good enough. Most stuff falls over when you point a 50 beowulf at it

I think the bullets and case thickness are based on the 50 AE and the case lenghted.
but higher grain bullets of course can be loaded in 50 beowulf but ther eis overlap.

That is my (tenous) understanding and i am willing to stand corrected
