Anyone have one? Thinking it might be a good caliber for hogs and deer. My shots are 100 yards or less.
It wouldn’t really be my first choice of caliber but most stores I have been to have bare ammo shelves but a few boxes of 450 are sitting there.
I was thinking of picking up a Ruger ranch rifle or maybe just an upper for my AR.
Upper for your AR might be the easiest. Just set that up with a scope and swap it onto your lower whenever you want to use it (or vice versa).
I built a 458 SOCOM about 12 years ago as a 'dedicated' hog gun and have killed hundreds with it. Like you most of my shot opportunities are 100 yds and in.
When hunting over baited sites....I like to let several get 'lined up' (if they will) before sending that heavy, big bore bullet.
