JE, I like the 450 bushmaster info compared to the beowulf and socom.What does the 450 use for bullets .451 or .452 or doesn`t it make a difference?
What is better the gas operated or piston? Does anyone make custom 450 uppers I seem to only find them from bushmaster.
Thanks again every one for your input,Robster
The 450 bushmaster uses a 452 Diameter 250 grain in the Hornady ammo and 260 in Remingtons
I don't know if anyone is making the piston version in a 450 Bushmaster but if they are I feel
they operate cleaner and foul less than the gas operated versions.
Bushmaster and Hornady teamed up to build the Bushmaster,that is why you will have no
problem finding the 450 in a Bushmaster upper.
It is special built for the round and even has the gas block relocated for the Hornadys port
Mine is very accurate on a Rock River lower with the longer barrel (They come in a short
version and a long version) and will stay under 1 MOA to 250 yards and just over 1 MOA at
Drop is about half of the other two at this distance. Ballistics of the 250 grain bullets are not
very good for distance beyond 300 yards so I limit myself to 200 to 250 yards.
It is a hammer on Hogs and lots of fun with 10 rounds at hand for a family of pigs.
If you intend to reload, the pistol leverevolution .452 diameter bullet is the one to use.
