Basically all the Midwest shotgun states are allowing straight wall cartridges 45-70 450 bushmaster etc. their Is a gun smith that sells his own veriison of the 450 bushmaster on any action savage , ruger , Remington 700 he guaranteed 2 inch groups at 200 yards. His guns range from $850.00 to $1150.00 Christians arms even makes one for around $1300.00 slowly but surely this gun is going to replace a lot of designated slug guns.
Now my savage 220 shoots inch groups all day long at 100 yards , but I would not attempt a 200 yard shot.my ruger 450 will be my bear driving gun for sure but as for distance if any trips come up a custom 450 is def in my plans .
Even stock you can grab for 375 how can you go wrong ??????
