50 BMG shooters? Summit Ammo and Reloading Gear?

Any 50 shooters on the board?

My brother just picked up a Barrett M82 and has started looking into buying ammo and buy gear to start reloading. I'd rather ask questions on this board first before trying other sources.

We picked up some American Eagle FMJ at Cabela's over the weekend so we can go shoot it.

Anyone familier with Summit Ammunition?

Also what 50BMG reloading press and gear works best for you?

Thanks. Summit has some good prices on reman ammo. This rifle fell into Phillip's hands and he had to take the deal. He's looking for a scope and I asked John Boyette for some suggestions for him.

Jason, I want a 99 myself. I think it would be perfect for my uses. How has yours worked out? I'm sure it's your favorite rifle in the house.

James... we can probably meet up at a range sometime. Know any in your area that allows the big Five Oh? The two I know of are Tac Pro and Tiger Valley.
Thanks, I think we've blown the budget on 50 ammo for now. We bought the American Eagle FMJ at Cabela's to have some on hand, and Phillip ordered some of the Summitt Ammo that I was asking about earlier.

Not to mention the scope purchase he's having to shell out for. My sister in law is going to flip out if she finds out about all this stuff that goes along with the Barrett. :lol: :lol:
Thanks Adam. I forgot about Ammoman and I've purchased from them before. Duh on me.
Thank you very much Jerry. I took notes, well actually I printed your post. Ballpark, about how many reloads per case?


Adam... Get your company to buy you one, or just go get one and expense it off as a business expense? :idea: :idea:

In the current Global climate, could prolly gt a shipping company to purchase a barret 50 and a good 6.8 to ship defense.... Bet that job would pay well.... MAybe Blackwater will get a contract
When Carnival Cruise Lines starts hiring, I'm first in line at their HR office.

BW has a ship in the area, they have gotten requests from one or two companies but you need a major contract to keep a boat floating around the ocean..... and its all former seals doing it right now.
