450B Striker fired today

Postby snowgetter1 » Wed Feb 13, 2013 7:24 pm

Finally got to shoot the 450B today. The barrel is a 17.5" varmint. It does show some decent accuracy, but I think I will need a Ross brake on it to shoot it well. Recoil was not bad but the barrel really jumps up and my wrist is sore after about 25 rounds. I will post pics after I get the brake and paint it up. It is a fun project though.

Loads were with 240 XTP Mag and IMR 4227.

Here is a pic of the Striker. The barrel on it here is a 243, but the 450B barrel is the same. I have also replace the scope with a Nikon Buckmasters 6x18.

Got the barrel from Apache Gunworks off Ebay. The pic is a savage 243 varmint barrel cut down to 17" with a Ross brake on it. I also have a new 6x18 Buckmasters scope on it now. The paint is Duracoat flat black and ACU gray. The strikers are just flat out addicting especially with large caliburs. My only wish is I had more than 2 since I change barrels on the 243 one alot. Here is my other one in 30 Bellm for Illinois legal deer hunting. The paint is also Duracoat.

The worked and painted 450 Bushmaster is ready to go. Many thanks to Ross for the one week turn around on the muzzle brake. Excellent work. And thanks to Apache Gunworks for the barrel.
