    IMG_3255.JPG Well official,production of the 50 Krater is in progress... 300RUM cut and loaded with 50cal bullets.
    275gr, 325gr, and 350gr
    I had one I need to pull and reseat there in the front...
    This is for a bolt or the AR-10 platform.. it's a blast (no pun) to shoot!

    That's screaming for the 325 grain. Bet it kicks like a mule in a bolt gun. AR, not so bad.

    As recoil junky i am jealous. ill bet it kicks like and has similair balliatics to the 458 win mag. 325 at 2540 is only a couple hundred slower than a 338 lapua shoots a 300grner! I had an addiction to the 50 beowulf and would shoot the power belt black powder bullets at 2000 they would splash on the targrt with theyre thin jackets. i habe a mould for a 550gr gas checked projo that id like to see at 2400fps

    *applause*

    That a Remy action, Sir ?

    Reminds me to set up my chrony ahead of the Siamese Mauser .45-70 I cobbled together last year. Clearly, from your video, the .50 Krater is a lot more robust than my clunky cast bullet launcher.

    *more applause*

    the 450 is a blast to shoot (pun intended on the blast part) and yes sir that is a rem action.. It's much easier on the shoulder in the AR10 platform I promise...! They are all fun to launch bullets from IMO... even the little rounds... Just loaded up a bunch more HP's using the 350gr Sierra Sports Master bullet for the 500S&W.... Bang Bang!

    What style of powder are you using? Are you using magnum rifle style powders or are you using magnum pistol/shotgun powders like the .500 S&W?
