.450 Ackley Magnum
 
 

The 450 Ackley Magnum was designed by Parker Ackley around 1960. This cartridge is based on a full length (2,85-inch) H&H; belted magnum case, necked down to 45-caliber. Compared to the tapered-case 458 Watts, this Ackley-designed number does achieve the same velocity with somewhat less pressure. Conversely, this cartridge does provide for slightly more muzzle velocity when loaded to any given peak chamber pressure.
