Same question^^

What do you need to know? I don't reload for 454 but I do for other big bores.

It's been 15 years, but I loaded for a Freedom Arms 454. Used H110 and 300 gr Hornady's.

Rifles are similar to boats and young women...there's no end to how much money you can pour into them without making them any more useful.

296-H110, heavy bullets, small rifle primers, good neck tension and a firm crimp. Hang on!

Yes, what poisonivie said. I have done this twice now. Find dies and components. Load up a few (don't go nuts but a hundred is reasonable) and then force yourself to buy the right gun. That ideology speed up my purchase of a used but 98% Ruger Bisley Hunter. Love everything about that work of art.

Good times.
