Al-
That is a really informative link, and your thoughtfulness in posting it is much appreciated.

The 460 S&W test is pertinent for those of us who reload the 450B in bolt rifles. When loaded to pressures that bolt rifles are built to withstand, 450B velocities approach more or less closely those shown in this test for the 460 S&W for barrels of a given length.

The cautionary notes that the testers wrote regarding the 460 S&W apply equally to the 450B at these velocities.

Bob, it sorta made me take a second look at short barrels across the board for hunting.
