I'll gladly try a couple of them. Guy I bought it from had it set up on 55 grains of N110 and a 325 Barnes that they no longer make.

Looking at this link http://www.450bushmaster.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=714&sid=253732ee85e6a7d07543e5878560ed86 I'm hoping that I can get these http://www.hornady.com/store/45-Cal-.452-250-gr-FTX-for-450-Bushmaster/ to group like I want.

I've pretty much thrown the Pac-Nor idea out the window (for the time being at least) and set it up more for some of my woods locations and keep my smokeless H&R set up for longer ranges.

After snoopin around barnes' site, looks like he was shooting barnes originals in 300 gr. Luke pushes that round quite a bit so I may end up going with them if theyll group.

The Barnes Originals group great in my Savage with Vihtavuori N120. I've owned it a year and it still amazes me every time I shoot it.

Lol, I'll give any of them a shot (at least once) provided they look good
