I bought on of these last week from Randys. Mounted a 2x 7 Redfield on it.
I haven't been active in the 450B for years, but jumped at getting this bolt gun to do things that I can not do with the AR.
Shot it this weekend and IT WILL SHOOT! Although at 6 pounds -- it is NOT a bench gun. It screams for a brake or suppressor. BUT for the one shot you'd have at a critter ----
There is plenty of room in the magazine and the cartridges are free to move a considerable distance. That does not effect the feeding. However, there is a considerable distance from the magazine feed ramp to the breach face. I tried some dummy rounds with WFN lead bullets and they need to be fiddled with. However, I have really not played around with it much. Factory ammo is flawless.
My immedate goal is a 50 yard load ----- what I might call COWBOY velocities. 1300 fps range with a 250. Just for playing around and not dislocating your optic nerve.
Have ROSS make you a brake exactly like mine with four gills and the rifle becomes a true kitten. Watch this one. I shoot the Grendel then the Ruger. Watch the recoil on the Ruger. New rail and PEPR mounts installed since the making of this video. https://youtu.be/7VZqJKf1FwA
