    I'm looking to buy a rifle in 458 Lott caliber. I would like something built on a 1950's - 1980's action.

    If you know/have a gunsmith, 458 Winchesters are plentiful and you could buy one and have the chamber lengthened to the 458 Lott (It is just a longer 458 case)

    Ruger made some in the #1 and Winchesters should be available.

    It is a very powerful cartridge and it is known to break stocks in the pistol grip if a small design is used. It is one of those cartridges that need a muzzle brake for best performance.

    Small world. I saw his ad at AR and suggested here. (I found a 1917 Enfield sporter here in about a day).

    If you find the rifle, I have 75 pieces of Norma "unformed" brass that would work perfectly for a 458 Lott, just collecting dust on my shelf.

    Hello dirtball

    Thanks for the reply.

    No thanks - I've got 7 rifles in 458 WM cal. and lots of ammo and brass and bullets. I also have 100 pcs 458 Lott brass, that's why its a 458 Lott rifle I'm needing - to go with the brass.

    I saw that as well, but it doesn't say whether it's a model 702 or 704, with the CRF built into the bolthead.

    I have a Lon Paul Brno 602 CZ in 458 Lott. Mercury recoil reducer, fully bedded action, 5 round mag box, beautiful factory wood stock, hand cut checkering, etc.

    I have 130 rounds through the gun, shoots the 500 AGS, 450 Barnes TSX FB really well. I think have at least 100 of the 500 gr. Speer African Grand Slams which are discontinued. 3/4-1 MOA rifle with that load in A-Square brass and VV-N135.

    Let me know if you're interested.

    Cole, strange, I also had a 458 Lott built by Lon on a ZKK-602 action. Yours isn't it, my wood was much darker.

    Cabelas here in Mitchell,SD has a Ruger #1 458 Lott sitting for quite a while for about 900.00 I look at it every time I go in trying to talk myself into buying it but I have a bad shoulder now and can't take the recoil. but I really liked the 458 Lott I had built years ago on a Rem action and 400 gr Barnes spitzer boat tails(disc)
