Is .50 Beowulf too big for the AR platform?

Yes, Thanks for doing this. I am a new AR builder and see a lot of experience in this forum.

I have an 80% billet lower enroute to me now. I am all set up to finish it. As for upper I am thinking about the .50 Beowulf.

What do you think? Is that really too big for an AR?

I moved this to it’s own topic so you can hopefully get some more feedback.

I haven’t messed with a .50 but I know it’s been used pretty successfully in a lot of builds. From what I understand you just need the 7.62 bolt and and an upper receiver with the larger ejection port.

Maybe someone else can provide some more info?

The AR platform handles it just fine.

nope works Great love mine
