I already have a couple of rifles with decent recoil. BA 110 .338 Lapua Magnum
and a .45/70 which I shoot 500gr rounds.

This isn't just about having a "huge bore" rifle but a good hunting rifle for large/dangerous game. Dragging a .408 CheyTac or a .50 thru the woods is not really not a good choice. At least for me.

well the average .375 thru .458 is not what most would call a target grade round. Yet there a few folks that just like shooting big bores for the fun of it. You don't think about buying a .458 Lott without thinking about hunting. That's what it was designed for.

I know why you want it man....I'm just messing with you. Note the at the end of the posts.

Trust me I want a .50 BMG just to have one to shoot down power line areas that are open for miles, and ultra long range steel targets. Might sound cruel, but I think some 2,500 yard coyote hunting would be kinda fun. LOL

Re: .375 H & H vs. .458 Lott

i have a 458 lott and let me tell you itwill giveyou a nose bleed in about 5 shots without hitting you nose. i did some trading for it with the intent of letting other people shoot it just to get the reaction and let me tell you it is good.
as far as hunting with it i probably would if i needed to but thats why i have other rifles to choose from.
