    Found a decent deal on ammo so I ordered 60 rounds. That should be enough for the first range trip and will give me brass to reload. Also ordered a few big bore followers for a few of my AR-15 magazines for more reliable feeding.

    Wonder if I can use my .500 S&W dies to reload the .50 Beowulf. Guess I'll have to check the reloading forums online. Edit That would be a no. The .50 Beowulf has a slight taper of .010" from neck to base.

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    Upper just came in. Pictures taken while UPS driver still unloading truck. When I get home I need to fit it to one of my uppers and check to see if I have an H2 buffer as required.

    Put the .50 Beowulf upper on the basic lower I have from a fun budget AR build I did. Looks good however I think I may want to build an A2 rifle stock lower for it. What do you think, would the A2 rifle stock lower look better?

    Magazine followers came in today as well. Ordered 3 and swapped out followers in 3 magazines. Here is a picture of the new follower vs original .223 follower both in and out of the magazine. New follower is back and helps keep the cartridges centered in single stack form compared to a typical double stack .223 magazine.

    Yes Bear Creek. I read about using a Dremel on the magazines. When I get ammo, hopefully next week, I'll load some up and see if I need to use the Dremel.
