Re: Accuracy with a .458 Win Mag?
I have the .458 Ruger#1 with a 26 inch bull barrel. I never did do the load development to dial it in like a bench rest gun. 20 years ago I just used 78 grains of 4320 and 510gr solids and round nose soft points and 2.8X10 50 mm scope. I just dialed it to a consistant sub 4 inch group at 200 yards and called it good.
Later on I bought 500 Barnes 405 gr X bullets for horned game shooting. I was able to to get some clover leafs at 100 yards on the bench shooting them right at 2400 fps. Very deadly round. I don't think that sub 1000 pound animals would stop this bullet in under 250 yard shots
.270 Ackley improved 29 inch 1.250 dia. target barrel 7mm STW 28 inch 1.250 target barrel. I also love my .458 mag for varmints and the biggest game in the world.
