why do you need that big of a caliber do you live in africa?
you can kill anything in america with a 30-06 or even a 308 winchester with a 165 grain bullet。
you do know barrett sells the 50 bmg。
or is this just to brag how big a gun you have because that is all it is worth。

yeah but already have those and the standard= boring.But i really like Jack Lott think his name was Jack.and it fires 458 win mag to / I figure since the m98 was chambered in 375 h&h alot that the lott case should fit 2.80" the 375 h&h being 2.83".going to use it as a hog gun and maybe somthing else cough deere

"Why do you need that big of a gun?"

What kind of question is that for Long Range hunting? If we purchased firearms based on need, it would be a really boring sport and a speck of the industry that we enjoy today.

460or338,

Here is a suggestion, get a Ruger #1 in the Lott. I have one of the stainless/laminated Tropical models. In my opinion, one of the finest and most classic rifles out there and compared to a cutsom built Mauser, no more expensive and likely much less.

If that does not turn your crank, the Ruger M77 Magnum is also offered in the Lott and would be similiar in price to a complete custom Mauser and the Rugers come with some really nice wood.

In my lot, I have played with everything from the 500 gr Hornady solid at 2400 fps down to a 440 gr Cast performance hard cast bullet loaded to 1800 fps for moderate range shooting. Using hard case bullets, the Lott can be loaded to be very useful for north American big game. I am going to try the new 325 gr Hornady FXT and try to load them to around 2600 fps and see how they shoot.

The Lott can be much more then a Buff stopper if you know how to load for it and have a bit of an imagination.
