I have none with the 450 but I have taken 4 deer with a 458 and not one of them twitched after being hit.

Have a .458 but can't hunt with it in Ohio. Took a doe with a .350 Legend with no issues. One shot. Down.

CMMG Banshee upper using Endo 9mm mags?

Why won’t they let you use a .458 in Ohio?

Not wanting to drop that much $ on an upper and Endo mags can go out of business. Tried em before & no dice & their "customer service" was next level bad.

Ohio is straight wall cartridge only. 458 has a shoulder - although a very small one.

What an odd rule. Ours is center fire mushrooming ammunition on rifle.

There are several states like this. Many have been shotgun only for YEARS and they are finally relenting some with "straight wall" cases only. I'm sure a non-firearms person was involved in that decision, but the shot gun only guys are probably happy to have at least that.

Exactly why companies like Winchester developed the 350 Legend. IT perfectly fits into the rules AND allows use in a MSR platforms.

Glad I don't live in one of them. LOL

I prefer the 9mm specific lowers versus having adapters or weird mags in a standard lower. My Aero EPC lower uses glock mags.

You don't have or want a 300 AAC AR? Ammo has come down a lot and close to 5.56.

Unless I find a 9mm lower at a LGS, I'll have to use an adapter.

No 300. Not stocking new calibers.

I have a caliber problem so I am a bad influence, they are like pokemon to me. Just finished getting all the parts for the 8.6 BLK and now I am building a 6mm ARC, wanted 6.8 SPC but it's fizzled and 6mm is the next hot thing. Wish all the options for 7.62x39 weren't so crappy for AR15, not a bad idea to have something to shoot the enemies ammo LOL.

AR15 - 9 calibers depending on how & what you count
AR10 - 3 calibers

Regardless a 9mm AR is a ton of fun to shoot. Mine has a Odin barrel and Foxtrot Mike BCG. Be aware there are 2 thread patterns for 9mm barrels, so check before you buy a muzzle device for the barrel.

Just finished up a lightweight coyote gun in 6mm ARC myself. I was leaving and worked up a hand load that shoots decent with the Sierra 70gr BK. Next spring I will work a better load, but this one cuts well under an inch, so it'll do for the season.

Fun little cartridge - although the 22 ARC looks fun too.

What length barrel & brand? Thinking about 18" Ballistic Advantage with the Aero 6.5G/6ARC BCG which I have in my grendel. Very slight chance I will splurge on a Proof Research CF, as a car guy kinda amazing I havent used one yet, eventually.

I have the Wilson Tactical Hunter 18" stainless flutes. 1-7.5 twist. I used this exact bbl on my 300 HAM'R build and it is a freaking tack driver right from the moment I installed it. Ragged holes all day long. Only tried 3-4 loads in my 6 ARC load dev since I was on a tight schedule, but only loaded 50 rounds so I'll have to come back to it in the spring and work on a better one. Shoots well - I'm just obsessive. LOL

Dang, I was hoping you would not glowingly suggest that, because it was my first choice, but stainless on this build won't look good and they don't have black. Geez now I need to evaluate swapping something existing in this receiver set.

That is why you have them Armor-Tuff coat it!

I got mine done in OD Green to match my upper and lower.

My buddy laughs at me - he wants everything to be different and "new" on his builds. I like mine to have what is perfect to me - on every gun. ALL my AR's have a phase 5 bolt release, the same safety switch same grip, etc. When I pick them up I don't wanna have to remember "oh this one runs like this....." I want them all to be the same! LOL

We are NOT cut from the same cloth.
