    HAs anybody seen this AR rifle bullet developed by Hornady? 250 grains at 2,200 fps.

    Impressive. If I did more hunting I would probably pick one up.

    It's a joint project between Hornady and Bushmaster.

    I bought a .450 Marlin and week later saw the ad for the new Bushmaster and knew i had to have it.

    Pretty slick setup. Switch uppers and take a standard AR mag and change the follower out in it and it becomes a 9 round .450 mag.

    I've been keeping my eye out and it doesn't look like uppers are available yet. I think the full rifle is just now becoming available.

    Thats impressive. I need one of those. I would like to see another ammo manufacture of two producing the .450 bushmaster cartridge though.

    Looks like Hornady has exclusive rights to it, but I guess that could change.


    I'm still looking for upper receivers for it...

    Just like the .357 Sig being made by other manufacturers or the .400 CorBon, it will eventually make its way to others on the market.
