The 45 Raptor is a rimless .460 S&W mag that was designed for use in the AR-10 platform. It can now be found in some bolt-action rifles, such as the Savage Model 10. To convert for bolt-action rifles it requires only a barrel change and for AR-10 platform rifles it requires a barrel change and a modified magazine. The 45 Raptor uses .460 S&W load data and 45 colt/454 casull or .460 S&W dies.
Barrels for both AR-10 and Savage Model 10 rifles are available from Satern Machine/Liberty Barrels.
**WARNING** In firearms that use a floating firing pin (such as the AR-15 and its variants), dropping the bolt on a chambered round could lead to a slam fire. It is important that these firearms are loaded from the magazine so that the bolt loses inertia when it strips a round from the magazine. It is also important NOT to use sensitive primers that aren’t designed for use in an AR, as this increases the chance of a slam fire.
