Track down The Flash - he's had a bunch of 50's and shoots competitively
I know a little bit about the 50 BMG
The Serbu is decent from what I've seen and heard for an entry level 50 BMG. I have an old LAR Grizzly big boar. They were bought out by Remington and were discontinued in 2012. If I were to get another one I'd probably get the Armalite AR-50. The ammo in the above pic is these https://www.lehighbullets.com/product/510-170-match-borerider-808-grain/
This is what a 6'x6' target looks like at 1,000 yards at 32 power.
by the clarity of that scope at that magnification I am guessing that's not cheap glass we are looking thru is it flash?
For ammo, try going to some guns shows. I've seen alot of surplus .50 BMG at several gun shows this year in the Monroeville, PA area. Most of it is already in the belts so you would have to disassemble the links if you bought it that way. I live 45 minutes south of Pittsburgh and they have gun shows at the Monroeville Expomart several times a year.
I'd probably only shoot the thing at my buddy's land...we set up a 200 yard range, shooting into the side of a dirt cliff
the biggest local range here specifically bans 50 BMG, but the range I belong to doesn't mention it...I'm planning on asking before showing up with almost a cannon
By today's standards it's pretty cheap, I think I paid around $550, but that was back in 1999? It's a Burris. The trick set up back then was to buy the Leupold Mk IV which was about $1k, then before even mounting it, send it to another place to have the magnification increased. It's not uncommon to see $3k+ scopes on the line now.
Not bad by todays standards for sure. The sky is the limit on optics any more it seems.
