The Bushbuck 45 caliber is built from a very rigid platform to provide
the highest power and maximum shots per charge, with the highest level
of accuracy. The solid one piece receiver and picatinny scope rail is
milled from aircraft grade aluminum with a low scope mounting position
for proper scope to eye alignment and proper cheek weld on the stock.
The Bushbuck’s air cylinder is an all steel unit that provides rigidity
and an anchor for the 452 high quality, accurate barrel with a special
twist rate to stabilize short and long bullets in flight. The Bushbuck
has been accuracy tested to 250 yards with amazing results. The extra
long 400 plus grain bullets give especially tight groups. The 285cc air
tube provides two full power 600+ ft/lb on high and four 400 ft/lb shots
on low with fill pressure of 4500 psi (High) & 3000 psi (Low).
Cocking and loading the rifle is done simultaneously with ample space
for the extra long bullets. The trigger is a very solid unit that breaks
very clean at around 3 lbs. This fine rifle sports a high quality US
made stock in laminate as standard or nicely figured XX-Claro walnut for
an extra charge. Both stocks come with laser engraved stippling on the
pistol grip and for end that add to the visual appeal of this fine rifle
and include dual sling studs in the fore end for bipod and carry sling.
The new Bushbuck 45 will handle any North American and most
non-dangerous African game as well as compete in long range target
events at the highest levels. Best of all, the Bushbuck 45 is 100% Made
in the USA!
Everything Tofazfou has said is true. I d like to add that air rifles typically have much thinner barrel walls than their powder burner counter parts. This makes the air rifle barrels much more susceptible to harmonics problems. I had one .45 cal. air rifle where the barrel walls were only .084 inches thick. I had to put shims between the air tube and the barrel just to get sub 3 groups out of it at 100 yards. Our air rifles are inherently heavy with the steel air tubes so manufactures save weight by putting skinny barrels on them. I have done a lot of 300 yard shooting with my Extreme .30 cal. and I can tell you how I m going to group for the day before I even take the first shot by seeing how hard the wind is blowing. Even with wind flags I ve only been semi successful at turning in good groups when the wind is switching fast. Our ballistic coefficients on our cast bullets are down right crappy compared to a good low drag jacketed bullet. My .30 caliber cast bullets have a B.C. of only .248. My m 182 gr. bullets have a B.C. of .700. That means that in the same cross wind the poor cast bullet will blow off course almost 3 times further than my m jacketed bullet. These are just the facts of life that you have to deal with in shooting long range with air rifles. There is however a certain amount of satisfaction when you turn in a good group that didn t require scaling powder charges, case sizing, case trimming, primer seating, bullet seating, bullet purchasing, case purchasing, primer purchasing, loud noise big recoil. There s also a certain amount of independence that goes along with air gunning in that you don t need anything from a gun store to keep shooting. You can cast your own bullets and the compressed air replaces the brass, powder and primers.
