440 & .445.  Ouse .457 in my Old Army.

Nothing is hard if you have the right equipment and know how to use it.  OR have friends who have both.

John, Just new someone could use them... Had 6 boxes of 50 cal. and sold them already... I also got 2 boxes of 36 cal.

TC, Thanks just don't need them and hate to melt them down to 40's or 32's....

.454s are pretty commonly used in 1858 Remington and 1860 Colt revolvers, so maybe look for a CW buff, or take them to a 'vous or shoot in your area as trade goods and you could have luck in finding a buyer.
