Have not seen one up close and personel but it looks like a great round! Be interesting to see what "conventional" guns it eventually gets put in?

I like my .450 Marlin but have not taken any game with it yet.

The 450 bushmaster is basically a 460 S&W with a rebated rim. With the additional barrel length (20") you get on a rifle the 450 Bushmaster can drive a 250 grain slug around the same velocity (2200 fps) as a 460 S&W w/ 200 gr slug and 10" barrel.
