They had 50 BMG's at Raahauge.

There were EDM (in various calibers including 338 Lapua, 408 Cheytec, .510DTC and 50BMG), Armalite AR50, LAR Grizzly Big Boar.

Also 3-shot semi auto 408 Cheytec (I forget the brand but it had wooden stocks and foregrip).

There were also two 1919's. 50BMGs were more popular though.

Range was about 100 yards with hanging steel targets.

Camera's/Video camera's ok. Lots of people had their friends/spouse take picture of them while they shoot.

Line wasn't too bad today. But you can expect more crowd tomorrow according to Mr. Twisted.

They had tons of vendors there. I didn't have time to check out other vendors. They also had exibition shoot. Weather was very good too.

Sorry no pictures. Maybe I will take some pictures tomorrow.

you forgot to mention the cost. it was $15 a shot. for the 1919's it was $20 for 10 rounds. ouch, but if you have never shot something like these it's still worth the experience.

I saw Steyr had HS50, single-shot, bolt action rifle. But, they quickly ran out of ammo.

If you really want to feel pain, try 375 Ruger bolt-action rifle from Howa.

I shot 9 rounds of 300 Win Mag. to warm up and tried three rounds of 375 Ruger. 300 Win. Mag was no problem but 375 Ruger was very PAINFUL!!!
