I don't mind you asking, and I believe there is a saying just like that (however the saying is pronounced "Bork, Bork, Bork!" in swedish ;) )
My plan is to use VV-N110 and Hornady FTX 250 grain to start with. I think Lyman's latest reloading manual has the caliber, but not with the powders I have access to. Gonna buy Hornady's manual and start slow, within limits and with my chronograph and QL.
I'm also gonna try 300 grain of Hornady's XTP MAG and try to see if I can get Barnes 275 grainers later on.

The problem I have is that I sometimes can't get hold of some of the brands of powder in the manuals. Couple of years ago I called Norma (yes, they are also swedish) and spoke with their expert. He told me to get a powder with similar burning rate/time and work slowly upwards.

Thanks again!


Norma 123 is good choice for the 200gr FTX or 200gr XPB
Norma 200 is good choice for the 300gr XTP Mag seat until it kisses the lands ~ 2.24 COL
VV110 is a good analog to Lil Gun. Load accordingly.

We expect range reports! ;)

Welcome Bebop. We definitely are looking forward to your range reports and hopefully some pics of your game harvested. I see that you’re actually in Sweden. Your country has a special place in my heart. My biological mother was Swedish.
Long story and not really something to be discussed here. So welcome to our electronic campfire. And if you need help with posting pics, I can help you on that.
This is my tutorial from my You Tube channel.

Thanks!
I'll definitely post pics on my harvest. At the moment we're only allowed to hunt wild board, and the main hunting season starts in mid August. First the roe deer and then the moose hunt in mid October followed by red dear and then fallow dear. Boars are legal all year around.
I have two old but nice Schmidt and Bender scopes I'm planning to use with my Bushmaster. One 2,5-10x50 and one 1,25-4x20 and warnes QD rings, I might get a red dot in the future.
I can say likewise. I've only been to the U.S. once, but I loved it. I've told my wife that if the if we for any reason would move away from Sweden, we'll move to the States, and she agrees. ;) Both me and my wife have distant relatives living in the U.S.
Anyway, thanks again!

Thank you for the welcome! I am reading a lot and learning as much as possible. I am having a problem finding the load data area and could find some help to get there.

Welcome Aboard OM!

There are now two versions of load data. Load data for the original AR platform 450b and load data for the more recent bolt action and single shot 450b's.
There is no specific load data section. Many recipes are available but they are embedded in posts, mainly in the Reloading for the 450b sub-forum, though not limited to there. Its easier to elicit opinions about load data by asking in the Reloading for the 450b sub-forum. It helps to state which kind of platform you are using and what particular bullet(s) you are interested in loading up. There are many bullets to choose from in this caliber.
