Default 450 Marlin load question

Has anyone loaded a 500 grain bullet in their 450 Marlin. How does it shoot?

Even the .458 Winchester Magnum is considered by many to be marginal in it's handling performance with 500 grain bullets. The .450 Marlin should be best used as loaded by Hornady with the 300-350 grain bullets.

I have been loading 350 grain in it but I just wondered about a 500 grainer!
