Hello:just purchaed a Ruger 450 Bushmaster,got it all sighted in for hunting,using Hornady 250 gr. FTX ammo,shoots very well.Does anyone have other info on this firearm.
A medic with the training that they used to get in Special Forces for duty in those eight man teams that went - well, far into the bush; one of those guys would probably do for the job. Long as you ain't too creaky now.What's the max range on one of those? And would I need a paramedic after shooting it? (I'm not a big fan of recoil...)
But I have shot the 450B.I have it figured about like Greg does, Spike. Both of us are pretty much guessing, but we're guessing the same way - that the 450 Bushmaster talks back about like a 'factory load' 45-70 would, pushing 300gr bullets. After that, it depends on the gun you're shooting it out of. I had a partially torn rotator cuff when I owned that Marlin 1895; factory loads were not a big deal.
What we need here is a gunner who has fired the round in question. Preferably not Jim, because he doesn't notice recoil until it knocks him down.
