Also known as the 12.7x99mm in Europe, has been used extensively in almost every U.S.A. conflict since its adoption in 1923.
Adopted by the U.S. Military in 1923 the .50 BMG has been used longer than any other cartridge in military history.  (Note: The .45 ACP is actually older, but was technically superseded.) Technically the .50 BMG is the biggest cartridge available to shooters without encumbrance legal restrictions.
