50 BMG for 50 Browning Machine Gun
.
Invented in 1918 by John Browning, the .50 BMG, also known as the 50 Browning,
50 Browning Machine Gun, and  12.7x99mm, has been used extensively in almost
every U.S. conflict since its adoption in 1923.
Adopted by the U.S. Military in 1923 the .50 has been used longer than any other
cartridge in military history. (Note: The .45 ACP  is actually older, but was
technically superseded.) Technnically the .50 BMG is the biggest cartridge available
to shooters without the encumbrance restrictions. (There are other wider diameter
cartridges, but none larger available)

50 Cal Spotter-Tracer, M48A1, which is fired from the M8C Spotting Rifle, that is mounted on top
of the 106mm recoilless (
BAT) for (Battalion Anti-Tank) Artillary Cannon. The Spotter-Tracer
cartridge is smaller then the regular 50 caliber Browning Machine Gun (BMG) cartridge. It matches
the trajectory of the 106mm cannon projectile to follow, to ensure the 106mm has a good target
impact. The projectile has a primer at the tip to ignite a mixture that produces a smoke spotter on
impact, and also a tracer cup in the rear of the projectile to produce a tracer out to 1500 yards.
