I don't see why it wouldn't work.  I use cast bullets in my 458 socom as well as my 50 beowulf.  I do powdercoat them and gas check them though.

I’m going to be trying it soon.

Big plan is using the 460-315 ranchdog sized to .452 coated w harbor freight red plain based

I cast for the 50 Beowulf as well.
First time I did it I didn't let the bullets age enough and they swelled in the case. I wound up having to pull 200 rounds of ammo that would not chamber.
I was not having a good day at the range that day.

It should work well to cast for it.  I mean, why not?  I shoot cast in my beowulf, 458 socom, 300 blk, 223, 338 spectre, etc... so why not in a 450 bushy?

I have been using a Lyman 452651GC 315 gr. bullet sized .452 with 14 gr. of Unique and a CCI400 primer in my Ruger American Ranch rifle. Groups about 1"+ at 50 yds and 2.5-3" at 100 yds. Not bench rest accuracy but good enough for hunting. In terms of recoil it is very pleasant to shoot.
