Go for it! The Mossberg bolt line is similar to the Howa action and they are very good....I have a few Mossberg centerfire bolt guns and they are a good gun.
Interesting. I didn’t know that.
I don’t (haven’t anyway) hunt with my .450 Bushmaster AR, but it rings steel like a boss. I like the cartridge.

One thing to keep in mind, the .450 bushmaster uses .452 bullets. It pushes them out fast, but they’ve got terrible ballistic coefficients. I’ve only had real success reloading the .450 with the XTP Mag line of bullets. There’s real accuracy with those, and I wasn’t able to obtain good accuracy with any other bullet I tried.

The terrible coefficient on the bullets limits effectiveness to somewhere under 300 yards. Or so I’ve read.

Otherwise, it’s a cool package in an AR-15.

Hornady and Sierra Matchkings. Between the two there's almost too many options for quality bullets.
