Anybody shot one of these yet? Just from the marketing blurbs, it appears to be at least somewhat comparable to a .45-70 (I'm curious how Hornady gets over 3,000 ft. lbs. out of a 250 gr. at 2,025 fps in a .45-70, and only 2,686 out of a 250 gr. at 2,200 in a .450. Must have taken a different physics class than I did) in a very handy, stubby little scout rifle. I'm not crazy about the howitzer-style muzzle brake or the plastic magazine, but I can put up with them. I'm thinking it would be a great camp rifle in grizzly country, a nearly perfect truck gun, and good for game up to elk at limited ranges. Yeah, I know, there's an AR upper in .450 BM, and it would build out to a very similar size, but I've never been a fan of black rifles. A Marlin Guide Gun would do the same jobs for less money, but I don't like the exposed hammer and I don't shoot lever actions, so less instinctive with that mechanism. Carrying a Smith 29 or a Redhawk in .44 is the classic bear country option, but really, there's no comparison in terms of power and accuracy, and the rifle is not much heavier. A Benelli M2 loaded with Brenneke or copper sabot slugs is potent bear medicine, but not nearly as versatile. Just idle musings on a Friday morning.
