It has large ears on each side. Overbuilt like most Ruger things, not fragile at all.

Would like to see one in S&W 500, just to get to a 50 cal.

Thanks C.Alls! Now I gotta work out a deal with another Hooligan on some dies and brass. It's always something.

I already texted you the details on the deal for the dies and brass.

And you are a true Hooligan.

Interesting you say that. It's what C.Alls was looking to do. His take was the round is so loud his efforts weren't getting it done.

I plan on bruising my - and some Hooligan friend's - shoulders first. We'll see where it goes from there.

Very nice, and a good plan! Kinda like drinking beer from a long neck. Might as well get ALL the goodness!

One More Thought

In the past I've complemented my AR platform rifles with a bolt rifle chambered in the same caliber:
  • For my 223/556 AR's I have a very nice Savage 110.
  • For my 300 BLK AR I have a very nice Ruger American Ranch chambered in the same caliber.
  • Now I have a bolt rifle chambered in 450 BM and do not have an AR in the same caliber. But I do have some pre-2013 un-built AR lowers on hand...

OMG - where could this void logically lead?

This setup should work

I slapped an inexpensive 4-16X40 scope on the Ruger. Most of my shooting is only out to 100 yards so this should work to start. I don't really need optics that cost more than I paid for the rifle.

Looking forward to getting this bad boy to the range.
