    Default 450 Alaskan

    I'm looking for load data and also to see if anyone has a used set of reloading dies for sale in this caliber.

    Thumbs up 450 Ak

    Yes sir
    Have a H. Jonhson win 71 in 450 AK with a Bumiller barrel

    IMR 3031 @ 65.0 to 69.0
    350gr Hornady FN
    Fed 210
    WW brass

    Now days you can get almost the same performance out of a 45-70 or 450 Marlin

    His 50 Alaskan was his bear gun.........he sold quite a few to the Weatherby crowd going to Africa back in the late 50 to early 60's he only made 60 or so rifles.

    Does the 50 Alaskan have better terminal characterisitcs over the 450 Alaskan? It appears 50 Alaskan brass is much cheaper to come by....
