I have been looking at the wording for the use of straight wall cartridges for deer bunting.
It looks as though the 450 bushmaster doesn’t fall within the criteria because it isn’t a handgun cartridge.
What are your thoughtsEmileemeneParticipantOctober 22, 2019 at 1:33 pmPost count: 4

You can use them, says .450 bushmaster and .45 raptor are included in the criteria on the Iowa DNR website. The .450 bushmaster bullet drops pretty fast, I shot a buck at about 60 yards with one last year and it walked about 3 yards and dropped.cowboyParticipantOctober 23, 2019 at 7:16 amPost count: 384
I won a 450 last year at our NWTF banquet, need to get it out and shoot it, or sell it for something else!ECFirearmsParticipantOctober 23, 2019 at 8:36 amPost count: 1354
