Still have the 50 bmg bug but cannot find any inexpensive 50 BMG uppers (50 BMG and inexpensive may not go together)...How is the 510 ammo cost and availability? Any links? See more 510 uppers than 50 BMG. I have a RAW lower so that is not a problem....Thanks

IIRC Mr Kubota (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/member.php?u=370) sells 510 DTC.

You will probably find 50 bmg a lot easier than 510.... this is my guess

Time to reload. Just run the 50bmg brass thru the 510DTC sizing die and you are good to go.

...AFTER you trim it down to 3.78-3.80" as well... :)

EDM Arms has a guy who makes DTC rounds for their Windrunners chambered in .510DTC. Prices aren't bad either as your getting AMax or similar projectiles, winchester brass which has softer brass shoulder area. Can't remember the price but it was reasonable.

You can call EDM Arms and they can give you the number to get ahold of the guy. I have the info somewhere around the house and will post if I can find it.

If you have a RAW then I would stick with 50BMG. Ammo is easier to get although once you start reloading it is a push except no need to fire form. Draw back is no kids can shoot a 50BMG/RAW where a 510 on a non RAW can be shot by kids. I would look at an ALS or Ferret upper as they are both vary accurate proven uppers. Saving a few hunderd dollars won't matter when you factor the cost of ammo, optics and reloading equipment. I would stick to a proven upper.

That would be Jerry Hazlett in OK...
He makes both BMG and DTC ammunition.
