I have found this not to be the case. I can consistantly get accurate groups with my handloads in my Serbu.belt fed frog said:get a State Arms far more accurate for the same amount of money
SA is match grade gun
Serbu is is a blaster only
Your logic may be sound but I'm thinking it's a moot point, as probably 90% of us with 50's will never even have a chance to shoot on a 1000 yd. range, much less ever see one. They may be plentiful west of the Mississippi but finding a place to wring out a 50 east of there ain't so easy. Nevertheless, most 50's are bought by guys who are happy to just shoot it at 300 yds and less. I'm assuming mjlynch71 is just looking for a good 50 plinker and not a competition rifle as he mentioned Serbu and not McMillan or one of the other high end rifles. As stated above, if he's looking for better than 1/2" MOA with handloads he should be looking elsewhere.belt fed frog said:guys i am not saying the Serbu is a POS but that dog don`t hunt at 1000 yards
belt fed frog said:guys i am not saying the Serbu is a POS but that dog don`t hunt at 1000 yards no Serbu has ever placed in FCSA competition and there are a few design issues i have with Mark`s design 1) no provision for ventng gas from pierced/ruptured primers it vents against the firing pin and turns it into a snake shape meaning a new firing pin and some other retaining pins need replacment and 2) the forearm shroud is welded on so you can only grip the barrel by the end to remove it (not too conducive making a good barrel change you run the risk of torqueing the barrel ) a 50 barrel is only at its best accuracy for a max of 3000 rounds then it starts to fall off rapidly with a larger agg group size and random flyers
out to 600 yards a good gun farther than that it is a blaster
I remember the day like it was yesterday, about ripped the heart out of every guy over at biggerhammer, what a shame. At least the legend lives on. Hey frog, with all that 50 shooting, quite a bit of it before muzzle brakes were perfected, have you suffered any health effects? Detached retinas? Hearing problems? Shoulder problems? Just curious as to whether the 50 has beat you up any.belt fed frog said:i miss Klause it would be black ice that got him bringing a load of new stocks back to the shop, i know for a fact he would rather have gone hunting in alaska...
