I have a Ruger American but sadly it's only a .308 . I do like the rifle though.

I wanted a 460 S&W repeater ....... The 450 Raptor fits being a 308 blown straight and trimmed to 1.8" . As a direct replacement for the 460 it's really very pleasant with 250s even full on 460 data in a SR 6# Mauser . A 350 gr cast stops being fun at about 1800 fps . A 1-20" twist would be best I think , plenty if you want to shoot heavies slow .
Just a Red neck,White boy, Blue blood American.....
