Gunsite Scout .450 Bushmaster

Post by Rugerologist » Sat May 04, 2019 5:52 pm

I recently picked up this Lipseys exclusive Gunsite Scout chambered in .450 Bushmaster for hog hunting. The plan is to take it to the range tomorrow to shoot a bit at 25, 50 and 100 meters. Me thinks that I'm going to need some sort of optic as I really don't care for the adjustable rear ring. It just sort of fades away when shouldered. May opt for a fixed low power optic or possibly a trijicon rmr depending on how she shoots. I grabbed two boxes of Hornady Black 250 grain and a box of Federal 300 grain. I don't want to meet the hog that this thing should be capable of taking down but doesn't. Always have the 10mm to back it up in a chest rig from Simply Rugged!

You need a trailing truck on it then you could call it your Hog Howitzer!!!
Some people sit on $.05 of knowledge like it is the treasure of Egypt. I will teach anyone $.10 worth just to prove a point...
