You know, I used to love to put two sandbags directly behind the bipod on my 240 when I could. That always mitigated the recoil for me by slowing it down. Was it weapon abuse? I dunno.

No, it wasn't weapons abuse. We do that all the time for our .50 cal and 240B PMI/field zero. We also have the "gangsta" grips mounted on our 249s now. That does help with recoil and shoulder fire stability.

Cassius, anyone who's fired a 240B has a bias for the 7.62. It's just so much fun to shoot that caliber of automatic machine gun.

Yeah, big enough to be dramatic, but not knock-you-on-your-ass big.

.50 is easier to clean.

With some weapons, such as the GPMG in its SFMG configuration (which is then using a tripod and not bolstered by the shoulder) you do need to weight it down with sandbags, but in the SF configuration it is designed for use at extremely long ranges and as such even a tiny shift has a huge effect

Yrkoon9, but I can't carry the .50 cal around, and then fire it. Although, the .50 cal is more fun out the gunner's hatch of a HMMWV.

I'm armor. If I am walking more than 5 feet it's time to call the infantry!
In all seriousness something I can't stand is carrying the tripod for the 240. Fucking stupid.
