Do they clean the rifle as you shoot it and come with a, "Never Miss, No Matter What," guarantee?

If not, that's a pass.

Good golly Miss Molly! How in the world can anyone explain those kinds of prices? At that rate, cleaning up your brass is a given.

Some years ago I was at a private range for a shoot and 'lies and tall stories' day. A very well dressed guy turns up with a leather covered, brass corner bound rifle case, custom Holland and Holland rifle, Swarovski scope etc.. he was driving an Aston Martin.

Anyway, he proceeded to zero his rifle, for a trip to South Africa we were informed. He must have fired 50 shots then he began to pack all his gear away. His last action, before leaving the firing points, was to throw all his brass into the bin.. did I forget to mention he was shooting Lapua??

A man could have been crushed to death in the stampede for the 'used brass' bin seconds after he'd left. Even now once fired Lapua brass is costly over here.

Well here's a thing for you.. You know of Vihtavuori propellant made in Finland. Well we get it here and it's the equivalent of $104 for a 1kg tub. Why I hear you ask.. well it's simple (sort of ) ALL Vihtavuori powder is brought into GB via the USA..!! Don't ask me why, it just is.. It's made in Finland, shipped to the US, then shipped back here. It wasn't always the case I can can remember buying it 20 years ago at acceptable prices..

Tom that is ridiculous! I shoot American Eagle 50 BMG 660 gr FMJ and I pay $29.99 (Lucky Gunner) for 10 rounds! I'm pretty sure we shoot more of it here than you all do on your island and that helps keep the cost down but still, that is an unbelievable price you have to pay!

I can't imagine what you must pay to buy a .50 BMG rifle... even a single shot must be break the bank expensive.

Fortmeier .50BMG = $9,381
