Details

The longest confirmed kill (that we know of) was accomplished by a Canadian Joint Task Force 2 sniper. He used a 50 BMG to cover 2.2 miles. The next time you’re driving down the highway, set your cruise control to 65 mph and then hold your breath for the next two minutes. If you don’t pass out first, you’ll have covered the same ground as that sharpshooting Canuck so famously did. (Disclaimer: Passing out while you’re driving is actually really dangerous so don’t do this.)

It’s entirely possible that you’re not as good a shooter as the record holder for longest sniper kill. Still, you’re entitled to own the same kind of ammunition that would allow you to make such an impressive shot. And here it is: 50 rounds of 50 BMG, loaded at the historic Lake City Army Ammunition Plant.

This is a ball standard M33 cartridge, with a 660 grain FMJ projectile. Unlike your conventional FMJ, this big bullet has a soft steel core that enables it to stand up to some pretty seriously intense chamber pressures. Its 2,910 fps muzzle velocity gives such a hefty bullet plenty of range, as well as 12,408 ft lbs of muzzle energy. That makes this round excellent for self-defense against airplanes and probably even Greek gods.

Lake City made this ammo to meet the U.S. Armed Forces’ high standards, so it’s certain to meet yours as well. The brass shell casing has that visible annealing which Lake City is well known for, which makes its neck more supple for cleaner, more efficient ignition as well as repeated reloadability. This round’s primer is non-corrosive, so your $10 thousand rifle won’t become a rusty mess, and its huge charge of propellant is also clean burning.

A: Thanks for reaching out Rick! The headstamp on the ammo I just checked reads 18, but I can't promise that we wouldn't ship you ammo from a different year of manufacture.

A: The ammo I'm looking at has the 2018 headstamp. LAACP's brass typically looks a little rough because it's not polished after production. The gray around the neck and shoulder is just the product of the annealing process which makes brass suppler and more durable.
