Basic Reloading Precautions. 1. Modern ammunition uses smokeless powder as the energy source. Smokeless powder is much more powerful than black powder or Pyrodex®. The .450 Bushmaster was designed by the Hornady Manufacturing Company for Bushmaster Firearms International when the latter wanted a .45 caliber cartridge that would work through the short AR-15 action.

I could be reloading .450 Bushmaster for under $100, then add in my time. Why does my velocity differ from the velocity on your load data sheets? Inceptor uses barrels that are made to SAAMI specifications. Differences in the powder lot or rifling, barrel lengths, chambers, barrel temperature, etc., of the firearm can cause either an increase or decrease in advertised velocity.

I've had great luck reloading using both the 200gr Hornady FTX and Barnes XPB. The 225 FTX will serve you well also, at about half the price of the 200 or 250.

I'm totally 100% inexperienced with reloading to start off with. I am going to be getting a Ruger American in .450 Bushmaster as soon as I can get my hands on one for a dedicated deer gun in Ohio.
