Shooting the .450 Bushmaster is the ultimate upgrade for any
AR-15 enthusiast. The creation of the .450 Bushmaster goes back to the legend
Col. Jeff Cooper and his intense disdain for the .223 Caliber AR-15 platform.
Cooper was convinced of the need to as the old saying goes, go big or go home.
He dreamt of a cartridge for big game hunting that could reach distances of 250
yards or more. This inspired Tim LeGendre of LeMag Firearms to develop the “.45
professional cartridge” which used .452 projectiles.
Later, LeGendre licensed the .45 Professional to Bushmaster
Firearms International. Bushmaster then teamed up with Hornady Ammunition, who
wanted to modify the original concept to incorporate its 250-grains Super Shock
Tip bullet. The two compromised with shortening the case and the .450
bushmaster was born.
Remington also now offers several options for those wanting
the .450 Bushmaster. Many AR shooters find the round to be perfect, whether
hunting wild boars, black bear, elk, or even moose. While it doesn’t have as
flat of a trajectory as others, it still performs admirably, especially when
you consider it’s not intended for distances great than 250 yards. However,
even if velocities are low for reliable expansion at longer ranges, a .45
caliber bullet doesn’t need much expansion to bring down the big game.
Each box contains 50 once fired brass shell casings. Hornady headstamps. This is unprocessed brass sourced from commercial shooting ranges. The casings have been washed and polished, but not resized and may still contain the spent primer.
It is recommended that all brass be inspected prior to being reloaded and fired.
