Frequently Asked Questions

What ammo do you recommend and what ammo should be avoided?

First thing we reccomend is not buying large quanities of one ammo brand before trying it in the rifle. Buy a box (10 rounds) try it out in the rifle - making sure it fires and extracts normally. The fired rounds should extract from the chamber without having to beat the bolt handle open. If a fired round (empty case) is stuck in the chamber use a cleaning rod to tap the stuck empty case loose. A sad fact about .50 BMG ammo is its all over the board when it comes to case sizing, brass hardness and primers - this affects extraction, chambering rounds and general operation of the rifles. Lately the "Federal American Eagle " brand ammo has been troublesome when it comes to extraction. We dont reccomend it due to this issue.
