Started loading up my spent .450 cases and its been a LONG TIME since I've loaded CF cases. Like learning all over again. Thank goodness I had an experienced reloader who also loads the .450 Bushmaster provide advice, especially on crimping.
I looked high and low for LilGun and couldn't find it. One of the local shops knew I wanted some and had one of his buddies coming back from Chicago look. I ended up with a 4# container for $110. After shooting the muzz for so many years, loading just 38 grains is certainly different. Loaded up one box but have yet to fire a round of my reloads. The factory ammunition shot extremely well, now for some tweaking of the .450 and maybe improve.
Yeah, its one heck of an accurate round and rifle. I believe it'll shoot more accurate than I can shoot it. I'm not and have never been fond of the XMark Pro trigger and may one day change that to a trigger I like more. I like the Timney 512 and would probably exchange it from my muzzleloader and then install a Timney Calvin Elite on it. A different trigger (for me) would probably tighten things up. I do though enjoy shooting it as a change up. I'm a little bummed though.... one of my friends purchased one and had his wife searching for ammunition cheap. She found it, Hornady 250gr FTX for $17.00 a box. He bought a case. Good part of that is, he's offered me all his brass, as he doesn't reload.
