Big bore performance for the AR platform.

Nicknamed "The Thumper," the 450 Bushmaster is the most radical cartridge ever chambered in production AR-15 type firearms. Hornady brings big bore performance to the most popular semi-automatic rifle in America opening a whole new world of hunting to the battle-proven platform.

Hornady engineers worked closely with the Bushmaster design team building the cartridge to wring every last ounce of performance from the AR-15 without sacrificing any strength or reliability.

Well suited to hunt any North American game, the 450 Bushmaster will quickly become a favorite of bear country guides. By simply switching uppers, shooters can go from the prairie dog towns of South Dakota to bear country in the north woods!

  • The 450 Bushmaster fires Hornadys 0.452 250 gr. FTX featuring Hornadys Flex Tip technology.
  • The overall cartridge matches the 223 Remington at 2.250, but uses a specially designed magazine.

Put it all together, and you have a cartridge that gives your AR series rifle a serious attitude adjustment!
