    Default Anyone shot a Moose or Brown Bear with a 450 Bushmaster ???

    I am buying a 450 Bushmaster AR & was wondering if any of you have ever shot a Moose or Brown Bear with one & what you thought of it..

    I have checked the reviews & everyone loves the 450 but noone has shot anything ut hogs or deer & I want to take it Brown Bear hunting next year.

    Just checking your thoughts.

    Thanks

    Try 450bushmaster.net
    There's an Alaskan on there that has posted pictures of bears he has harvested. Also alot of reloading info as well.

    Sorry to bring this back from the dead but my son took a 48" moose two weekends ago here in the Yukon. The 450 Bushmaster worked very well with factory 250 Flextips, a load that shoots MOA in our Ranch Rifle. The bullet is pretty tough and kept good weight retention. Shot distance was just over 100 yards. The bullet went through about 30" + of moose and was found ahead of the shoulder on the offside under the hide. The moose stood still and collapsed where he was hit in 3-5 seconds after the shot.



    The boy and his moose!
