Welcome Aboard OM!

Don't be bashful with your questions. At one time they were our questions as well.

.451 bullets work just fine.

Yes Sir. They shoot great.
I do want everyone new here to realize however that all of our R&D predates the 1:16 twist barrels and bolt actions. Our testing was done with 1:24 twist rate AR 15 gas actuated semi autos and NOT 1:16” twist bolt actions.
DO NOT USE AR15 data to load your bolt actions.
Always start low and work up your own loads safely.
