OK! How about a Turnbull Restoration in 50 Alaskan or 50-110, which is .510 diameter instead of .500 diameter and can push the same weight bullet at least 200 fps faster. You can also probably buy it for less money too. Here is a Turnbull Browning 71 in 50 Alaskan. https://www.turnbullrestoration.co...
