    I have found a used 450 Dakota built by AHR, the price is very good. I'm a bit hesitant to purchase as a result of limited reloading data. Does anyone here have experience with reloading this cartridge? I'm thinking of some lighter loadings for practice before going whole hog.

    I have been loading 450 Dakota.

    At work, but will send you some nice easy loads.

    Do you have IMR 4064 or 4350?

    In short, it is not difficult to work up lighter loads.

    IMR 4064 and Accurate 5744 will have you shooting gophers to Moose.

    IMR 4350 is great for full loads.
