It should be close.
I also just did a quick PM conversion and that one came up as follows:
5.5# Light DME (boil 15 minutes)
2.25# Maris Otter
.5# Special B
2# Honey (boil 10 minutes)
Same hop schedule. Assuming 70% efficiency yields 5.25-5.5 gallons ~1.092.
Nugget is closer to Horizon as far as the flavor you get from the hops. Horizon has a bit of an 'edge' to it. Magnum is also a fine bittering hop though it's a bit cleaner.
As this has aged the spices are pretty much gone now. It's more like a barleywine now whereas when it was younger it made a good Christmas ale. The citrus hop flavor of the Cascades is coming through now more than it was when it was young, too, which is nice. For next year I think I will dry hop it with a bit of Goldings for aroma.
