[SHOT 2019] Condition Red’s Zero Dark Fifty, a 10lb AR Firing subsonic .50 BMG bullets


#23

Thanks brother! I really wanted to geek out more too. I have HIGH hopes for this new rifle and the caliber. You and I will get our own show in soon.

You can’t tell @Robocop1051… I don’t know if he’s looked in the case yet, at what got driven back - but I drove back, too… :laughing:

That last one above on the right is the 911 dummy round. The NEXT TO LAST ONE… that’s way more stout than 911 grains… I’m just sayin’… :kissing_heart:

There’s a lot of talk on the cartridge and the rifle, the ZERO DARK FIFTY… :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I think the greatest news is that it wouldn’t exist, if there wasn’t a fully functional .338 Lapua Magnum gas piston AR to run it from. I feel another test run coming, at the SDTF (Secret Desert Test Facility)…


#28

We’re going to need some bigger plates. I doubt @DNP is going to let us ruin any more.


#29

The 338LM did a number on them last fall


#30

I have a chewed up plate, too, from the 845… :rofl: It’s all worth it. Crush the same one again out there…


#31

People on other sites keep bringing up the “Russian 12.7x55mm” in comparison to the 500 Blackout…

My 500Blk chamber is approximately 12.7x61mm… Just sayin’ :us: :us: :us:


#32

Why, yes. Yes it is…


#33

We’ll designate that one the “RoboPlate”…you can shoot it all you want. There’s more of those bunnies out there too. We’ll have to find a better backing…you barely left a mark in that little pink bunny last time.


#34

I think I have the pic of that one… :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#35

Found it!

No, wait… that was the rental truck, after we pulled it out. HERE is the bunny!!!

Here’s a list of the Full Shenanigans, if anyone is interested…


#36

I sure am glad getting stuck was the worst part of that rental truck…

I mean, it made locking the keys in it almost not worth mentioning.


#37

Sorry everyone…

In true 308AR.com fashion, my friends manage to completely derail a perfectly good thread.


#38

I’m here for you, brother. FOR. YOU. :kissing_heart:


#39

Don’t be trying to change the subject…deflect deflect…bring the wife next time and let her drive the truck.


#40

I’m willing to assist with some testing this spring. :wink: Anything to help out a brother


#41

That happens around here alot. I cant remember the last time I stayed on topic longer than 3 posts.


#43

So to bring things back on track, yes Rob…you bring out the badass toys and I’ll bring all the cheap steel targets I can carry. Last year’s deal was a free bunny with every 1/2" IPSC for about $100. We had steel we didn’t even shoot last time…I’ll have to start working on some stands for this year.

Start buildin’ brass up for the 500. We’re going to need a lot of that this year - I get the feeling. I am pretty certain I don’t want to own a 500 Blackout…ok that’s a lie, but I know I want to shoot it.
