IronmanLE1 October 8, 2010 / Reply @faith669 no it just a worst case scenerio kind of scenes;) faith669 October 8, 2010 / Reply did he really kill those guys? Imakeplanesboom October 8, 2010 / Reply @staticman20 Ive shot the Beowulf, its so much nicer than an m82. staticman20 October 8, 2010 / Reply @edike Use a shotgun with slugs. ImSneakyPete October 8, 2010 / Reply @labartic You do realize that the insurgents are mostly using crude explosives right? if you blow up a crude explosive with more explosives your going to make a bigger bang. You are going to set the explosives off anyway. ImSneakyPete October 8, 2010 / Reply @labartic You do know a rifle like weapon like the Beowulf is going to be way more mobile then an m240. One ways almost 30 pounds unloaded and the other weighs 7lbs loaded. Do the math. And you do realize how much put down power a .50 cal cartridge has right? WAAAY more then a 5.56. Thats funny because i hear all the time about how soldiers in iraq don’t like the 5.56 because it has low put down power. NC77583 October 8, 2010 / Reply Thanks. I asked because he was shooting in the direction of people and I thought, “where is the safe??? WTF?!?!” But thanks for the answer. F22RaptorSquadron October 8, 2010 / Reply @staticman20 Completely different system for a completely different purpose. Sorry. lptomtom October 8, 2010 / Reply A 5.56 round “sometimes not capable of breaking through a windshield” ? What a load of bollocks. Nurple17 October 8, 2010 / Reply @Nurple17 The other guy’s barrel is open for us to see, but it’s still hard to tell because of the angle of the camera was not looking directly at the weapon in firing. You can also see that the camera is behind the truck when they “took a stand” against the bad guys. This shot was there only to create realism. I bet in real life, they shot up the car with dummies in it, because the last shot (camera shot, not gunshot) inside the enemy sedan, you can see the passenger still moving, driver too. Nurple17 October 8, 2010 / Reply @NC77583 Hard to say really. Blanks usually show more muzzle flash and gases leaving the barrel, but if they used a .50 blank it might still pass off as the real thing. In that part of the video, we don’t really see that much of Mack’s barrel end when he’s firing but we do see that his gun while he’s riding has a flash suppressor on the end of it, making hard to tell. If you subscribe to that continuity that is. Johnophobia October 8, 2010 / Reply Well if you take a .50 caliber hunting rifle into battle, obviously you’re going to go hunting. dontmakemeMAD1990 October 8, 2010 / Reply @staticman20 yea but that shit is heavy BryanTaerg October 8, 2010 / Reply There should be a Kalashnakov version called Werwolf…. SmageliBRANZ October 8, 2010 / Reply @staticman20 Yeah, but it doesnt have the handel of an m4 or m16. and its alot smaller. SmageliBRANZ October 8, 2010 / Reply @bjpw1234 becomes more interesting. labartic October 8, 2010 / Reply You say a 40mm grenade might harm nearby civilians? You think a massive 300gr beowulf bullet wouldnt slice through a couple of cars? I assure you it will. The kill radius of a 40mm grenade is 5 meters. Not too big. If vehicles running check points was a problem with our current weapons, we would hear about it happening more. But trust me, 7.62mm and 5.56mm full auto is gonna chop up an oncoming vehicle. You just dont realize with that AP ammo will do to cars and trucks. labartic October 8, 2010 / Reply That guys comment is false. A 5.56mm 62gr SS109 steel core penetrator known as “green tip” will penetrate a windshield no problem. Dont believe everything you see on TV alright. I personally know a soldier who stopped a suicide truck with a burst of 5.56mm to the windshield. He was a SAW gunner and sprayed a burst into the windshield, killing the driver. Not to mention soldiers at check points usually have other machine guns like M240 in 7.62mm which will stop an engine like nothin Tairoku October 8, 2010 / Reply @staticman20 You’re thinking of the wrong caliber. This is the .50 AE, the Barrett series of anti-material rifles uses 50 BMG. NC77583 October 8, 2010 / Reply Those were blanks, right?!?! (4:55 to 6:50) PLEASE ANSWER!!! Thank you. NC77583 October 8, 2010 / Reply Is that Discovery Turbo? ImSneakyPete October 8, 2010 / Reply @labartic 3:48- 4:55 Did you even watch the video? ImSneakyPete October 8, 2010 / Reply @labartic I was saying, that if they had this, now the person using this gun does NOT have to carry BOTH a shotgun and a M203. You’re really going to use an EXPLOSIVE weapon at checkpoints where civilian casualties are the main concern? You could take out the driver by shooting through the windshield of the car with the beowulf of which you can’t do with an m4. Not to mention that the beowulf is more mobile then a belt feed weapon.
