Re: Opinions & Suggestions on New firearm?
The 458 Lott is a bett choice than the 458 Win Mag. And, you can shoot 458 win mag ammo in a 458 Lott. Just NOT the other way around.
The action of choice for this is a pre-64 winchester or one of those new Empire rifle actions. If you don't care about controlled round feed you can build one on a rem 700 mag action since it is only a 375 H&H necked up to 458.
The 458 Lott is THE caliber of choice by most Pro hunters in Africa because of its reliability on Dangerous Game.
If you do go with a 45-70, the Ruger #1 would be my choice if it would work.
