Heres more words from Marty on the 500 Phantom AR15. "Here are some numbers to consider - based on load simulations, we have yet to shoot it over the chrony"

300 gr Barnes Original - 2400 fps
535 gr Woodleigh SP - 1750 fps
685 gr Extreme Shock Frangible - subsonic (1000 fps)
308 168 SMK sabot - 2600 fps has to be single loaded through port
750 Amax - subsonic (1000 fps) has to be single loaded through port Posted by Picasa

Marty has done it again! He's made an AR upper chambered in the powerful 500 phantom cartridge. Here are his own words.... "We had developed the .500 Phantom originally for use in the AR-10 for firing .50 BMG bullets are subsonic velocities. But during some of the load development , we noticed that with the "smaller" bullets, the overall loaded length would fit in the
AR-15 magazine, and so the idea started taking shape" "Due to the larger size, only one style upper will work, namely the Olympic Arms WSSM upper. It uses most everything as is, just needs to have the barrel replaced and the mag lips milled off a bit. We opted for a 16" carbine, but with muzzle brake. Believe me, this wolf needs a muzzle" Posted by Picasa
