50

Some years ago I picked up a fast twist barrel from SSK. It is chambered for what Jones called the 50-70-750.
Subsonic. It shoots these: 649 grain BMG, MV 900 fps. At 400 yards it is still travelling at 820 fps.

First I’ve seen of these. I’m glad the “Contender” is back.

SSK has been around since the 70s making very large caliber barrels for Contenders.
