I have some noob questions regarding the .50DTC round.

Will a rifle that is chambered in BMG accept .50DTC rounds?

If not, how hard is it to chamber a BMG rifle to DTC?


I got my eyes on a Bushy BA50 :43:

No. The two are not interchangable and niether one will fit into a chamber cut for the other.

How hard is it to rechamber? It depends on the action, the barrel and the smith. I don't know how the Cobbs/Bushmasters are designed but, I bet it's one of the harder ones to rebarrel.

Are there any restrictions on purchasing a BMG rifle if you intend to rechamber it to DTC? I think its just the .50BMG round itself that is restricted, no?

Its any rifle that can chamber the .50BMG round. So, you couldn't purchase the rifle in CA and then have it modified to DTC. It would have to be modified to DTC before it came in state. And even then, I'd be careful if the receiver said .50BMG on it. It's probably FUD, but I recall hearing at the gun show from that one coudn't convert a .50BMG rifle into a DTC rifle if the receiver still said .50BMG on it.
