ID:	28959 Cold outside so it seemed like a good time to load some .450 Bushmaster for my Savage bolt project.

    Had a chance to chrono this load today. 1850 fps at 12'. Holds a very clean .75 moa group at 100 yds off bipod using a 1.25 - 4 Leupold scope. I am sure it would be much better with a more powerful scope, but for a knock down the bad thing this will do just fine.
    Rifle is a pre accutrigger Savage 110 LA with a Rhineland 18" .450 bushmaster barrel that I recently installed.

      Very nice, that new trigger might probably take a little off the group size as well if you're still going that direction.

        If you thinking of the Jard trigger, it will be going in another Savage 110 LA I am working on in .223. Kind of fun digging out rifles that have been in storage in the back of a safe for over 30 years and bring them back to life.

          Yeah I connected the wrong dots lol. It's good to have more than one project, but for me it just seems like I have broke ass shit! The only light at the end is they usually come out much better. I think the problem is I need more rifles again or more money.

            No shortage of projects around here. Most of my rifles are a work in progress. Always seems to be just one more thing to improve on. Makes retirement interesting. Celebrated Easter with a couple of hours out on my range and of coarse prepping brass.
