    Bowers Vers50

    Post by Cornmastah on Wed Feb 24, 2016 6:06 pm

    I decided to sell a couple guns that I haven't used in a while to fund the purchase of the Bowers Vers50 large bore suppressor.  I will use this suppressor for my 50 beowulf, 458 socom, 45-70, etc...  I wanted to get it in before the big requirement changes.  I will give you guys an update in 6-8 months when I get to test it out, lol.

    Holy frijoles!  I didn't even know such a thing existed.  Dang Corn, you come up with the coolest stuff.

    It is going to be cool with some 600 gr 500 S&W subs out of my single shot Handi Rifle... or at least that is what my dreams keep telling me.  I can't wait to play with that thing.  I know it won't be as quiet as my other quiet calibers/loads, but I am excited to play with various loads.

    Here is a picture of the big Vers50 suppressor from Bowers. I threw in a pair of scissors to show the size of the suppressor relative to the scissors and the kodiak TL .22 suppressor. The scissors are the regular big sized ones. The Vers50 is big, but I am excited to test it out sometime.

    That thing is huge, I'm interested to hear back how it works. Suppressed 45/70 or 458 Socom has a lot of merit to it.

    I ended up selling my Ruger sp101 with the 4" barrel and the combo wood/rubber grips to a friend.  I just didn't end up shooting it as much as I thought I would--the gp100 match champ stole its thunder (and range time).  

    I also sold my Marlin 336 in 30-30--I think the 30-30 caliber is dead to me now.  I have no more firearms chambered in 30-30.  Everything I used to use the 30-30 for, I can do just as well or better (and more efficiently & cheaper) in 300 blk.  

    My Ruger American Ranch Rifle in 300 blk also got the boot.  I fancied up my Rem 700 in 300 blk with the Magpul Hunter stock as well as the magpul bottom "metal" for detachable magazines.  Between the Rem 700 and my single shot CVA rifle in 300 blk, I am covered quite well.

    I also sold a 30-06 bolt gun, but then bought an Encore frame (to be SBR'd) with 30-06 & 35 whelen barrels.  I will soon buy a pistol barrel chambered in 50 alaskan.

    Currently, I am only selling/thinking about selling an old Winchester 670 in 30-06 which I got on trade for my old 5.45x39 AR15 upper.  Gone are the days of old cheap surplus 5.45x39 ammo, so I figured it was time to let the upper go to someone else.  I am not sure if I want to sell the gun, or refinish the metal and throw a new replacement stock on it and give it to my dad for christmas/bday.

    Too bad on the 30-30. Since I'm a lever -- 'cuse me: leaver -- guy, the thuty-thuty is a constant fascination.

    Other gnus: My gun pusher is rumored to have one of the new Ruger suppressor in stock. I will be visiting him waving fistfuls of dollars soonest.

    CF, have you set up your trust yet? Even after the Boma changes in July, I still believe the trust is the way to go.

    Short video shooting the 50 Alaskan Encore SBR with the Bowers 50 cal suppressor and 600 gr bullets. I just cast some 870 gr bullets this week and am going to load them up with a healthy dose of Unique to push them around 950ish fps. The 870 gr bullets sure do drain the lead pot fast.

    Well, it's quiet. That's a lot of lead to be shoving out there.

    ?Ever do any lead recovery from the land.

    sometimes we find bullets that have been shot, I usually pick them up and toss them in my brass bucket to be melted down and re-shot in the future. Sometime I need to make the video of the 880gr bullets out of that gun.

    ?Does the powder coating affect the recasting.

    ?How is that working to keep leading down. ?Good as a jacket or copper clad.

    Not the same as a copper jacket, because a copper jacket is rigid. However, it works well and keeps leading down. My barrels seem really easy to clean.

    Haven't really had to use the Chore Boy scrubbing pads since I started using powder coated bullets. As a side note, I just finished the 3 part series of loading the 880 gr bullets in the Encore:

    Whoa, dude! That was huge!

    Gotta tell you, I enjoyed the videos immensely. You do nice work, Corn - casting, videoing, and shooting.
