Looking to add a Big bore upper to my Bushmaster AR15 lower, but I can't decide on which caliber. I have read tons of articles on the web, but I'm looking for first-hand experience, pros and cons. Thanks
450 Bushmaster?
50 Beuwolf
others?

The 338 Federal will be my next upper for my DPMS.

Okay I'll bite, what did you not like about it?
Accuracy?
Recoil?
Reliability?

I just came through Dickson Sunday, on my way back from Stewart county, nice part of the country.

That's one sweet looking rifle. I may talk myself into to one of them someday.
