Hi Jim- Yeah, I dont think you will get good results with that load. I would load 5 up and give it a go. .458 is probably no way near your true bore diameter which could be as high as like .463. But you never know to you try. The hard alloy your using wont bump up to the true bore size, so you most likely wont get a good seal as the bullet heads down the pipe.
