    If anybody in the ATL area wants to rent a BELT-FED machinegun, Sharpshooters USA range in Roswell (indoor range, 25 yards max) is renting an M249 Squad Assault Weapon.
    Cost is $25 for a 25 round belt, or $50 for 50 rounds in the belt.

    Now, if somebody wants to shoot belt-fed MG's outdoors, there's a machinegun shoot next weekend, but it's way out near the SC border. A couple hour's drive from the ATL area. But at that event, some MG owners and Class III dealers will be selling the chance to take some shots with their big machineguns in rifle calibers like .223, .308, .30-06, and maybe .303 Brit.

    Thanks for the heads up on Sharpshooters, was thinking of going by there next week anyway.

    The Red Hill Machine Gun Melee is happening next weekend I'd bet someone will be renting one there. There's generally always a few.

    I'm thinking that a buck a shot could get expensive very quickly.

    The M249 has a cyclic rate of how many rounds per second?

    800 rounds/ minute.

    Or about 13 per second.
