I've heard rumors that cartridges were supposed to be ready last July and that rifles were to be available by fall. I have not read anything in the gun magazines. Anybody have any definite info on this? I'd own one for deer season if I could.
The ammo is listed here on the auction side but I didn't see any rifles listed yet.
"It is designed for deer hunting out to a maximum effective range of 300 yards (270 m)."
Yeah, with an 18 inch hold over.
I really can't imagine the need for a 40 caliber rifle bullet in the deer woods. Possibly in an area where hogs/bear are also on the hunting list?
Dunham's store near me has a shelf full of ammo. Don't recall the brand, but they were proud of them at nearly 60 bucks a box.
I'll stick with my 450 bushmaster.
If you need go with the 350 Legend. My FFL has been selling dozens of them since straight wall rifles can now be used for deer. Low recoil I am told and 200 in for yardage. Plenty of ammo. Just the gunshop talk, I have neither.
At our deer camp, several bucks have been taken with the .450 Bushmaster and the .350 Legend (as well as rifles in .44 magnum) since straight wall rifle cartridges have been made legal here. I would like to add the .400 Legend to the mix.
