Tom are there any plans for the smaller calibers . If not , that is ok . I “NEED” one of these . I’m hoping you submit to the RCMP for Canadian approval.

Barrel is 452.  A more appropriate pistol slug would be 45 colt.  Never seen a plated 45 ACP before.

HSM Bullets does "Plated" lead and been shooting them for a few years now in the 1911 .45 ACP .... There very accurate and affordable
 @ $45 per 500
My local Sportsmans warehouse carries them ... or on line.

X-tream is another, tho a tad more at @ $60 per 500 BUT ... also do .452" in 2 weights.

I ordered some to test.  The 230 gn is a bit on the light side for the full length barrels but should be a good match for the 22" Hunter

All good questions.  There is some field testing to do (ergonomics, cary, new sear and safety arrangement, etc.) and quite a few projects to complete before this gets into actual production.  October is a good estimate.
