Thanks

Yep, that's them. Midway had blemished ones on sale last year for something like $16.99/100. It was a steal! I bought two boxes of them and then put the info up here. By the time I went back to order some more, like later that day or the next morning, they were gone to good homes. If I see them come around again, I will also post it here. It pays to visit Midway's blemished bullets page once a day. The good die young. ;)

EDIT; Shop around and you will find them a little cheaper from time to time. manventureoutpost.com used to have them for $26.something/100.

If they're not California compliant non lead projectiles, they don't help me and I have to continue to tell everyone in California not to purchase a .450 Bushmaster caliber rifle.

William;

If you're not already registered, get your email plugged into notification in case these come back into stock. Don't pay no mind to what Midway says about a "one time run". They say that all the time.

Link Here.

Be prepared to move fast if you get the call. I missed the window of opportunity by something like 15 minutes.

Big Green "claims" they're going to finally, extremely belatedly, produce some 275gr Barnes copper TSX Hog Hammer rounds in the second quarter of this year...we shall see, of course. Hornady seems to have lost interest in the 450b with the exception of changing the color of the box they come in...

Can you post a quality closeup of one?

Thanks,

More new factory load news: I got an email from Underwood Ammo this morning that they are going to start loading the 450b in StarLine brass very soon and get it out for testing, and presumably for sale fairly quickly. Not sure what boolits they're planning on, but I suggested some of our handload favorites along with a courteous suggestion that they emphasize a tight neck crimp and hot primer...so keep an eye on their website. Underwood makes really top-notch factory loads, so I'd expect their 450b loadings to be well done also.
