Wow

.50 caliber air gun:

Designed, engineered and built in the USA, the largest production air rifle on the planet is here from Umarex USA. The all-new Umarex Hammer is a .50-caliber air rifle capable of launching a 550-grain lead slug at 760 feet per second, producing 705 foot-pounds of muzzle energy.

    Curious about the ammo. The article says nada, has no pix. Have boolit gear, could I make my own?

    Hmm. I’m in the habit of perusing the loading manuals and bullet design offerings. Bedtime reading you might say, and the plots are often interconnected and intriguing. A number of bullet designs, in fifty caliber, specified as air rifle bullets, have been available at accuratemolds.com for some years now. Presumably there must have been rifles built to use those bullets some years ago as well.

    This is not the first. I have taken several white tail with a .50 air rifle. I prefer to cast my own ammo and my favorite is the 50 epp-ug from accurate molds.

    This is how you do it if you don’t have gobs of velocity on tap: a big, slow moving, soft and thus easily deformed bullet.
