    I cannot find the ammo carried by the bearcat. Does anyone know the rounds per gun on the Bearcat? 20mms, or the .50s. A source would be nice as well.

    Thanks

    I forgot I posted here, thanks for your responses, and the manual.

    The manual states the M3 for the 20mm, but just a .50 cal mg. Are the .50s an ANM2 or ANM3?
