That's pretty damn cool.

Just out of curiosity, what might the benefits of having a bolt action chambered in 450b over things like 45-70 or other similar rounds.

For one thing, the rim of a 45-70 doesn't lend itself to functioning through a bolt action magazine very well.

We have much more power than the 45-70.

Better bullet selection.

When I get to it, we're going to have a really great pistol for the 450b, move over 500-S&W...soon

Besides, I love a bolt gun as much as I love the self chuckers and when the Kill Bullet arrives, we're going to blow everything out of the water and it won't matter if it's a bolt action or lever action or auto or whatever is your favorite poison..

Common Guys, help me out here..

Did you guys notice, Pit-Bulls rig has a Williams "FOOL-PROOF" peep site. I have used one for nearly fifty years. That site is not pretty like some others, but it truly is fool proof and is still being made today, and besides Williams Gunsight Company is just down the road from me, Great outfit.
