Ruger American 450 Bushmaster

Anyone hunt with one of these. I just picked one up to use in Ohio for their gun season since straight-wall rifle cartridges are legal. Plan on sighting it in later today. Hope that my son or I can try it out in their late gun season.

Sighted in today and I was impressed with it. It shot well and the recoil was very mild. It is less than an inline or a slug gun and probably just slightly more than a .243. I was expecting it to kick harder. My 14 year old son shot it and said that it was nice shooting with little recoil. Shot it out to 200 yards.

Also shot it thru a piece of 4X6 wood and it made kindling out of it. LOL.
