this is not an advertisement, I was just browsing around on the web looking around for .450 marlin rifles and stumbled upon a company that makes .450 marlin AR upper recievers... is that badass or what.

you gotta scroll down a bit they have pics of the .450 marlin in a magazine, they make magaizine obviously too

Uh, no thank you! Having fired a 450BM, that is quite enough recoil for me! :eek:

Lends new description to "rock-n-roll" in selectfire. Wow.

Are coyote hunters getting bored with their .223's?

With that belt all I see is problems feeding. I'll stick with the .458 SOCOM thank you. And you can fit 7 of those in a 20 round mag and 11 in a 30, and 14 or 15 (I forget which) in a 40. In the MGI drum you can fit 32 or 33. And the .458S is in the lighter and more compact AR-15 platform. I would wager the reason you can only put 5 rounds in that 450 Marlin mag is because of stacking problems because of the belt, any more and it is a jam-o-matic. Otherwise they would have bigger mags. And the .450 Marlin is only about 200 fps faster than the .458 SOCOM. Not worth the headaches for only 200 fps.

Well, they do advertise the .300SAUM and .325WSM (MY mistake, NOT belted cases!! sorry) with belted cases as well. Although the 200 FPS difference might not mean much (anything?) to many, it is a difference of about 500 FPE for a common 350gr loading. Surely nothing to worry about with a hog, moose or deer, but perhaps facing something wanting to chew:eek::eek: on you it could be worthwhile.:D

Greg, they already made a cartridge that duplicates 45/70 ballistics...it's called the 450 Bushmaster and is readily available. Unless you're a distant cousin of Tang, it is as much recoil as you want, even in a fairly heavy AR.

Problem with the 450 Bushmaster is that it uses .452" pistol bullets. The .458 SOCOM address the issues using .458" rifle bullets.

.450 bushmaster is under powered brother. i mean REAL .45/70 loads i'm talking about 400 grain bullets at 2000 fps

The 450 Bushmaster @ 2600 ftlbs of energy is plenty enough to do the job on anything. The AR is gas operated so you probably can't go beyond a standard factory load of 1595ftlbs in the 45-70-still plenty enough to do the job on anything.
