Shot placement may be a bit different as the trajectory may be pretty steep as entered the spine and exited the brisket.
I"d even consider a decent cast bullet for the purpose.
Wow Royinidaho, Now you have me thinking!
I have a new Swarvoski Laser Guide, a bunch of Woodleigh 500 grain solids that I would like to use up, (Not too many Elephants in my garden) and a Lyman mould for 405 grain cast bullets that shoot well. I also have a few loaded rounds with 350 grain Hornady's. I can run some numbers through Exbal and see what I am up against.
The trajectory is going to be steep so I will have to work within the adjustment range of my scope or get a rail made up with at least a 40 MOA cant?
The 500 grain solids will put a 45 calibre hole through anything and 405 grain
soft cast pills would be like hitting something with a 12 ga shotgun solid, so I dont think stopping power would be an issue?
Im going out for some long range field practice today so I will take the .458 out with me. I will let you know how it goes!
