    2 inch is plenty good enough for anything your going to hunt with a 450. I'm happy to get that out of any of my 4570s I'm not shooting out past 200 yards with one anyway. My beo does moa and I haven't noticed one bit of advantage to that over my 4570s in the hunting field.

    I know he made some samples but he never made any barrels for anyone to purchase. I was following that project closely and would have been first in line if he had produced barrels for sale. Unfortunately he decided he was probably going to loose $ and get stuck with some barrels so he never produced anything other than his personal proof of concept. I have his .300 BO barrel along with the action wrench for the MVP and they are great, would have loved to get an MVP in .458 SOCOM.

    Did some load development for my new 450 Bushmaster AR oddly enough they hit it right on the head 35.0 to 35.5 a little gun shot excellent one hole groups at 50 yards through a 20 inch barrel

    Interest post guys about the 450 BM. I was going to get the new Ruger 450 BM but I already had 2 TC Encore rifle frames so I bought a 20" SS TC Encore factory barrel in 460 S&W. On the good side my son paid for the barrel. LOL
    Loading the Hornagy 225 gr I get 2650 FPS and one shot kills on deer at 75 yds which is the farest I've shot deer with it on my farm.

    My Gawd: What's not to like there? That is pretty decent accuracy with that thumper.

    What is the recoil like?

    Quite manageable with the factory muzzle brake that is currently installed on it. I would say a 410 shotgun with 2 and 3/4 slug type impulse
