    Any .450 bushmaster brass available ??

    My brother bought a Ruger bolt action.450 bushmaster rifle for hunting season. He has taken 2 deer already with it. Looks like I'll have a new caliber to reload for. I have nothing for the .450 bushmaster yet. I'm looking for .450 bushmaster brass... even small amounts of a few brass shells are just fine if any are available. I need to buy reloading dies yet, figure out what powders to use, etc. I have a big learning curve to learn with this caliber. I have a older Lee .45 hollow point mould that drops a HPSWC that is .452 diameter. That should be a good deer boolit with the right alloy.

    I likely can spare a few dozen of the heap I’ve accumulated-

    Starline or Hornady brass both are good H110 works good for medium loads

    I have this boolit I want to use in the 450B. It measures .452 from the mould. It is a 240 grain HP SWC type with a wide meplat. I think this would make a great deer boolit for Ohio whitetail. I'll play with the alloy to see what gives no leading yet excellent expansion. So far ...I have 2 empty bushmaster shells .....
