Thank you for your time, everyone, Ratpack


Yes, changing brakes takes about as long as loading up an 11 round magazine.

Years ago, I had a Mossberg 550 (like a 500) with a rifled aftermarket barrel on it. The most miserable gun to shoot that I ever owned, especially when shooting Foster type slugs. Not as bad with sabots but not by much AND that was with 2 3/4 standard loads. First time I shot it after the barrel arrived was to sight in a 2-7 scope I put on at the same time, it split my eyebrow. That having been a rude introduction, I could only stand about 5 consecutive shots before taking the rest of the day off from shooting. I can't imagine shooting 3 inchers! Used it one deer season and sold it to a fellow who hunted in a shotgun only portion of the state. Got a Browning 300 Win Mag which was a pussycat to shoot by comparison. :lol:

Ross Schuler sells a great brake for the 450b, at an incredible price.

+1 on Ross Shuler's brake!

I just recently got my franklin upper with 20" barrel and shot my reloads and was very impressed, used lil'gun and250ftx bullets, shot at 50 yards and had it hitting dead center in five shots, have been shooting a long time and never had that happen. I hope to shoot at a 100yds soon but work is busy, anyway I was a happy camper, will get some pictures for a 100yd sight in. I just want to ad that I could not of probably shot so good without the forum helping with my reloading information, scope was a Bushnell 1-4 power tactical, but anyway thank you all and as usual God Bless!!!

I have a franklin 20" upper with a Bushnell 1-4 power tacktial scope and using my reloads( which I got a lot of info from the forum, they shoot awesome) had to give credit where credit is do.) It is very well made and shoots like a dream.If bushmaster shoots like the franklin either one is a true work of art. Will post my shoot from this coming weekend and you can be the judge.I must stress the point of this forum help, I thank you all and GOD BLESS!!
