Second i wont a hunting rifle that is semi auto that i can use on Deer hunting outside indiana bear and elk as i will be travling around and be able to due some out of state hunting. What i need to know is the bushmaster .450 rifle good for hunting all three. I like the ar15 for a hunting rifle as it is semi auto highly accurate and dependable and if i can get one like the 450 that i can hunt al threee with i will.
Also if you do not fill it will do the job liek if it is to big for deer or to small for bear and elk then what would you buy for a all around hunting rifle i am not looking at price as i do not need to right now and i wont the best gun for the job http://www.bushmaster.com/shopping/weapons/bushmaster450.asp






The Bushmaster .450 – big bore power in an “AR” platform… This powerful cartridge - developed in affiliation with Hornady - is tamed by the AR type gas operating system so that recoil is reduced to a heavy thump, and second shot control is retained. The Cartridge is adapted from a 6.5mm – .284 case with necking cut off to accommodate the 250 Grain Hornady SST Flex Tip .450 caliber bullet. AR type magazine boxes are utilized in the Bushmaster .450, and are fitted with a blue, single stack follower due to the diameter of the cartridge. With bullet velocity of 2200 fps, accuracy out to 200 yards is exceptional with stopping power ample to take any North American large game. The ChroMoly Steel Barrels are rifled 1 turn in 24” and Chrome lined in both Bore and Chamber for exceptional durability and ease of maintenance. Free Floating Aluminum Forends help deliver optimum accuracy – rifle length is vented for cooling. Forged aluminum receivers; A2 pistol grip and solid A2 buttstock with trapdoor storage compartment are standard features. All operating controls are the same as any AR type rifle, and the Bushmaster .450s are shipped with one 5 round magazine, a black web sling, operators safety manual, and orange safety block in a lockable hard plastic carrying case.

Check out Accuracy Systems: http://www.ruger-mini-14-firearms.com/index.phpthey do a bunch of different calibers for the AR-15.

If you just want an auto for hunting, I would check out the Benelli R1, I just bought one for my Dad and it shoots awesome!! It is a .270 WSM and if doesn't kick one bit. That rifle is definately my next firearm purchase.
