As someone who owns a .50 Beowulf and thinks it's a blast, .450 Bushmaster makes a lot more sense right now. A lot more manufacturers are on board with the cartridge and ammo availability is significantly "more available" than .50 Beowulf. I'm pretty much online only for ammo (ranging from $1.50 to $2 a round for the cheapest stuff) and it's my understanding that you can find .450 on the shelf at places like bass pro.

If you reload, I think there are more options for .450 as well.

All of the above said, I knew all of this in advance of my purchase. I just wanted to be able to say I that have a .50 cal and the only way I could afford one was a BCA beowulf upper.... 😁

Really wasn't planning on another gun this year. With other plans I'm limited on what I can spend without screwing my budget. With that in mind, what is the best budget option I'm likely to find?

Got it, put it together and zeroed with Hornady Black 250 grain FTX. Average velocity was 2152 fps. I zeroed it 3Ē high at 100 yards. Itís almost 2Ē low at 195 yards and 2Ē high at 50. Only measured group was 1.25 at 100. Once zeroed, I only fired 2 more rounds at 195 and they were about an inch apart. Easily better than my muzzle loader and savage 220. I want some more range time with it but so far Iím very happy with it.

NICE! And yeah, a lot of us aren't getting any younger. But younger or older, the one thing that is and will remain timeless, is that the guns that are the most fun to shoot are the ones you can hit something with. Enjoy!
