seems were getting our terms muddled here.
FIBUA. fighting in built up areas was what i was pointing towards. fighting in cities and towns.
Sorry if i chucked in the wrong acrynom / muddled it up like. I tried to use an american term to get a point across and i fell flat on my face.
But i stick with my opinion that a bull pup sniper rifle would be miles better in a built up area than a good old fashioned boom stick.

Can someone clarify if this is basically a kinetic-energy weapon, or whether it has a meaningful explosive warhead? How much explosive can you fit into something like that and does it make any difference?

Why on earth would you use a low-power .50cal, when you could use a much lighter rifle in .338 Lapua Mag, with better penetration and lower recoil
(It would be my choise of sniper caliber in most situations)
Originally posted by warpboost I've also read that since CA did or is making .50 BMGs illegal Barret is releasing a proprietary .416 round that is almost the same thing, but will be legal

I live in the fine state of Georgia, and I was just curious as if I have to have a certain liscense to purchase such a massive, gorgeous weapon.
