Ive only little more than heard of .450 bushmaster and I’m only familiar with it as a round that the AR platform has been chambered for and I think it was based on an idea from Jeff Cooper. But now I am seeing a bolt action chambered for this round and I’m curious. I have no serious intention on purchasing one, I just want to understand it. The rifle is the savage wolverine with the new “accu-fit” accustock. 18” barrel with 1:24 twist and integral 20 MOA rail. 20 MOA rail. This is the part I’m most curious about because I’m thinking there are flatter shooting cartridges that are still suitable for big game well beyond the reach of the .450. A .300 winmag maybe? From the little I kinda know of the .450 is that it seems like it drops pretty fast after a somewhat flat trajectory to around 200 yards. But why a 20 MOA rail then just to get to 200 yards? Usually people start looking at an MOA rail when they’re hitting 1000 yards. I find this all very interesting.
