I get it, but it has been a sport cartridge for some years now.Sporting Arms & Ammunition Manufacturers Institute (SAAMI)
The BMG isn't really a Sporting Arms cartridge, it's a military MG round.
Arguably, I find it a very sporting cartridge, just a bit expensive to shoot.
That would make sense as to why there is no SAAMI drawing, the problem Im seeing is that the CIP and the Browning drawing are different, significantly enough to cause a chambering issue.Hi,
I am pretty sure it has NEVER been a SAAMI listed cartridge, everyone has always used CIP for it when discussing "standard".
I would say also because of the "special" types of ammo you can get for it which significantly enhance the usefulness of it.Perhaps, but its not goin anywhere because dumb-asses love to say "Fuhf-tee Cal" to their friends and are willing to pay exorbitant amounts of money to be able to say it.
