Remember the weight facor of the .50. add the weight of the equipment you need with you and the fact that you might encounter very steep terrain.
.50 BMG, MacTac 50 usually requires "2" . guys (spotter/shooter) The Cheytec is almost as heavy as is the MacTac.50. Add two canteens of water,
ammo, ALICE pack, poncho, food, medical supplies, communications equipment, map and compass etc. You will be carrying a good deal of weight. "Snap
shooting" with the .408, 416 or .50 is also very difficult. One man could do the .338 Lapua depending on the mission, terrain and other features. I
have posted this to two other guys. Building your own suited just to you is the way to go but can be very expensive. Here it is again. Good Luck
