Finally shot it. Happy so far.

I finally made it to the range today and shot my 20" Bushmaster upper. I shot from a bipod and no rear rest. My better rest and chronograph were not available.. Didn't matter as I wanted to see what it felt like. All shots targets are 100 yards, 5 shot groups. pretty stiff cross wind. Loads described will go from 12 o'clock then clockwise ( that to the right for you digital people ;) The red bull is 2 Inch Diameter. ( crimped per Hoots recommendations).

The 38gr has the least vertical component in it. That gets my vote.

Good shooting under the circumstances! (bipod no rear bag) Image

Nice job and typical accuracy from the 450BM! It only gets better...
