Never heard of the .49bmg. They(Barrett) are making a .416

There is only .50BMG. The other big rounds are .510DTC, .50DTC, .416 Barret and .408 Chey-Tac.

Several months ago I jokingly referred to the ".497 Feinstein" - a slightly necked down 50BMG that wouldn't chamber 50BMG and was thus CA legal.

Perhaps he didn't get the joke.

I read an artical about the .497 Feinstein, it was a long artical and went in to a lot of balastic detail, basicly it said that the .497 was way too loud, usaly missed the target and caused shooters all over california to recoil
