The only draw back that I can see is I needed to get the ear plugs that let you hear what is going on around you but shuts down The big bang when I fire.
This is a loud gun when I am hunting and take a shot every one around knows it's me shooting.
I think this gun is well worth the investment for what I needed.AND WANTED!
PS.One thing I get a kick out of is when I am walking down my road from one spot to another(this is a dirt road with 4 houses on it that is a dead end and 8 miles long)If someone drives by (there are 5 hunting camps on my road) they stop and say "thats not a .223 with that muzzle what the he** is it?"When they are told that it's a .50 cal I usually here "Remind me not to trespass on your land".
I got this buck last year.
Yeah, those muzzle brakes are louder than a fog horn; but they're great for recoil reduction.
Slap a limb saver on there and it'll probably be one of the most comfortable big-bore gun you got.

HAd it at the local range last year and the guy next to wanted to know what I was going to use that "mini-mortar" for.
Here are some pics of my deer this year. The first one is of the general area anf the second is of the spine after I cut the back strap out. The bullet left a wound permanent channel almost 3" in diameter.
That cartridge really put the smack down on that deer, the damage is brutal lookin'!
