I do not have a 450 but shoot the 45-70 Guide Gun at near identical velocity with the same bullets. I love that power level. That said, if hunting deer out to 200 yards and not beyond, a 30-30 is just as good as say the 350 Legend and beyond 200 you are lobbing the big rounds. and do not gain much. If you shoot stuff bigger than deer, it is a different issue.

One friend has one he built on an AR platform. He is a master gunsmith, a wildcatter for 50 years. He likes the round but does not hunt with it, just too many better deer rounds without all the extra thump. So, to him it is just another range gun. with big bullets which he likes. He is a power nut and if it is not a magnum he does not like it.

It equals my Guide Gun in power and that is good and it should be peachy to reload, so go for it. The rifle you mentioned also gets good reviews. Sorry no personal experience.
