Lead free rounds.

Postby Baxter » Tue Dec 01, 2009 9:23 pm

I have yet to see any lead free rounds in the 450. Also I can't afford a reloading press just right now. I was wondering if someone would be willing to reload me some if I supply the brass and pay for all of the supplies and your time of course. Please let me know. Thanks. Oh yeah I would like the ballistics as close to factory ammo as possible.

Having a private individual (without a licence to manufacture ammunition - and the liability insurance) reload for you is a risky proposition. Many reloaders won't allow others (with the exception of close long time friends) to shoot their home assembled/created ammunition. Unless you're willing to sign a waiver releasing the reloader from all liability then I would doubt you'd get many (if any) offers.

Check out the thread linked below... there are ammunition companies out there that will gladly make customized ammunition for the public. This may be your best route... or you can put a bug in Hornady's or Remington's ear about needing a lead free projectile for .450B owners.

seems like barnes muzzleloading bullets would be a good start. they list a 250 gr mz at .451" They might be too long tho, and I'm not sure how that big honkin hollowpoint would feed. http://www.barnesbullets.com/products/m ... pander-mz/

edit: they also make a tmz that has a polymer tip that would probably feed fine. http://www.barnesbullets.com/products/m ... -fire-tmz/

Barnes makes a 200 gr and 275 grain bullets for the 460 S&W mag. The 275 works great. Avoid the Muzzleloading bullets. They say they are .451, but are really .450. Lots of copper fouling. The 200's and 275's and like the triple shocks.

Hmm, sorry, I didn't catch that, my bad. I was going by word of mouth and didn't even bother to read the whole thing! :oops:

No worries, the site doesn't do a good job of telling you until you go to buy them.... ;)

For the 460 S&W mag? Won't they be too large by about 0.010?
