    Tried out some .50 Beowulf 37.7 grs LilGun Hornady 300 Gr FTX, some .50 Beowulf 37.7 grs LilGun Rainer 275 Gr Plated HP's, .50 Beowulf 37.7 grs LilGun Rainer 300 Gr Plated HP's and some .50 Beowulf 37.7 grs LilGun Speer 300 Gr Gold Dot HP's. Took along my 8 MM Mauser Preduzece 44 model 98. Had a Timney trigger installed in the Mauser last week, one of my Yugoslavian SKS Type 59 66 SKS Monte Carlo Stock - Tapco Right Handed Model, Brown Laminate stock, one of my Springfield Armory, Inc. .30 Carbine Receivers I had Built by Fulton Armory, Yes Springfield did make .30 carbine receivers. ( http://www.m1carbinesinc.com/carbine_springfield.html) and a few other toys.......My Midway order came too, 500 300 Gr Rainer Plated HP's and a box of 20 .50 Beowulf 350 Gr Solid Brass Spitzers. I bought the 350 Gr Solid Brass Spitzers just because.....Sometime the Beo groups great and other times the groups just blow. Seems to shoot the best cold, after it heats up, it throws round everywhere. One group will be less than 2" and the next will be over 3"......
