I been looking at 450 bushmasters for awhile now to hunt this year with to replace using my muzzleloader or slug gun. I narrowed it down to the savage 110 haymaker, but my friend bought a 350 savage axis and is trying to convince me that the 350 would be better. I have been looking at effective ranges and both seem to be capable of what I will be shooting. I'm thinking 200 yard max maybe 250 I doubt I could shoot 300 yards. I hunt mostly out of ladder stands, and home made brushed in ground blinds. Is there a real benefit going 450? or should I just buy a savage 350? I am not afraid of recoil either just want to get the most accurate weapon that will put the deer down.
