Bear Creek Aresnal 450 Upper - Range Report

Postby Tunstal » Tue Oct 16, 2018 7:52 am

I picked up a complete upper from Bear Creek Arsenal and put it on a lower I had collecting dust.
Grabbed an inexpensive Bushnell Banner Dusk/Dawn 3-9x40 w/Illuminated muzzleloader/shotgun BDC reticle for $75

I put it together and strapped it on my Lead Sled with the laser and bore-sighted it in the garage, Grabbed a box of Hornady FTX250 Blacks and headed to the range.

The target was stapled to a backboard at 75 yards to see if I could hit paper (spoiler alert.. it did)

Group #1 - My point of aim for the first 3 shots were the dead center of the target to see where I would start after boresighting, results.... - 3 shots all touching about 1.5 inches right. (yay!)

Group #2 Next 3 shots were at the center of the lower right target, to confirm the 1.5 inches to right of POA before making scope adjustments

adjusted windage

Group #3 - Next three shots were at the upper right target and left a ragged hole centered about a half inch to the right of POA

Adjusted windage again

Group #4 - Next three shots directed at the upper left target- POI went in the wrong direction because mistakenly made the wrong windage adjustment (whoops, damn dyslexia)

reversed previous windage adjustment and adjusted the correct direction

Group #5 - Last three shots into the lower left target were in the sweet spot for 75 yards...

I consider this thing ready to hunt hogs, I rarely have a shot more than 100 yards and should be good to go at 200 if needed.

Great results, you got a good barrel there. I have found the 450BM to be one caliber that lends to accuracy w/o a whole lot of effort, especially with FTX bullets.
