    Starting to feel the difference in the DE

    Hi all,

    Went to the range this weekend with the purpose of only shooting the DE .44 to test my fix on the ftf problem with the last round of each magazine. For the first time, this gun was an absolute joy to shoot. No problems whatsoever. I pumped 32 rounds through it in the span of about 15 minutes. I am also finally getting very comfortable with this gun in this configuration so my groupings are really starting to tighten up as well.

    The range where I shoot never carry .50 A/E ammo so I didn't intend to shoot it in that configuration but on Saturday, they had some. I bought a box of Speer Gold Dot 300 gr. JHP ammo and thought that since I had shot so well in the .44 config, I'd give it a go. Man, what a difference. I just can't seem to get a handle on this ammo. It is so much more violent than .44 Magnum. Now don't get me wrong, I have no problems shooting this ammo, I even rather enjoy it but it's hard for me to be accurate because at the time I pull the trigger, my brain is saying yes but my body is screaming NO!!!!! I have only shot this gun at an indoor range so the BOOM is amplified. That's what is rattling me, not the physical kick or anything like that. I think I'm going to start shooting the .50 outside for a while. Maybe that would help.

    Thoughts?

    I had a DE 50 a while back - always loved to watch other people shoot it.
    I even reloaded it for a brief time before I sold it.

    I would have to agree with your comments 100%

    Well glad you are having fun with it. I never shoot one, but I have watched a lot of other people shoot them. I know my limits and that's way to much gun for this oldman. I enjoy watching the guys who can make them babies sing. Good Luck and safe shooting.
