.45 Gibbs bullet size

I just bought a Pedersoli Gibbs long Range Target rifle. Unfortunetely, it did not have a box or paperwork with it. The Pedersoli web site has load suggestions but doesn't have the bullet diameter that is uses.
I sure could use some help with this. I can buy some paper patch cup base bullets from Buffalo Arms, before I get to cast but I am unsure about the size.
Thanks for your help.

Oops my bad! If you could offer suggestions on bullet weight, it would be helpful as well.

Pedersoli recommends their mold USA308-451 which is 0.4508 diameter and 520 grs.

I use to shoot with this gun:

pure lead: 535 grains : diam 0.4485 Just the weight of the ramrod will SLOWLY get the bullet down the barrel.
