Couple things I'd try.

First seat bullets out longer. 450B has .200 of freebore so some extra capacity there if you want to turn the burners up a bit.

Second, open the feed lips up a bit to let the round sit higher.

Overtheir I am in the same boat as you. I went Axis. I did fill my deer tag this season with it though. I am interested in how much you have to trim off of the edges and where you had to trim.
I have thought about it. An am thinking more has to be taken off of the front of the lips than the back to get the front of the bullet higher. Kevin
