Did Quickload happen to give you better powder options for cast bullets in this weight? Thanks!

Hoot, I'll definitely be looking out for signs of that when I do my testing. Could adding a heavy buffer and buffer spring increase the dwell time a bit without going to a rifle length gas system?

Historically I've been loading 2 different bullets for my 450BM; the Hornady 240gr XTP Mag's and the Everglades 230gr JHP's. Maybe it'll be best if I keep these heavy cast bullets reserved for my TC Encore 460S&W Magnum rifle instead of trying to make my 450BM do something it wasn't intended to do ammo wise.
Half the reason I was going to try is honestly just for the fun of the experiment. I might donate a few pieces of brass to the idea still just to try it out.

As far as that bullet not being right for the 540b, it is better stated that it may not be a good match for the Bushmaster factory barrel. There are aftermarket barrels available that will be a better match for them. See how this turns into a black hole for disposable income?
