"How come nobody is necking a 50 BMG down to .38 caliber? Ultimate wildcat or what? Flat shooting to 1000 yards."

Such monstrosities have been done in the past.

Years ago I read about a project where a man took a .50 and necked it down to .30 caliber.

Bullets were something along the lines of lathe turned brass of about 300 grains.

The barrel better than 6 feet in length.

I forget the specific ballistics, but they were impressive. And the barrel supposedly lasted 30 shots.
