The main point is this. If a good bullet is driven by a good powder that was ignited properly, it will perform as it should irrespective of the case's headstamp.

If compare the .416 Rigby with 400gr. DGX bullets at 2415 fps/5180 ft-lbs to the .458 Win with 500 gr. DGX bullets at 2140 fps/ 5084 ft-lbs there is not much difference.

Doubles, Loads & the .458
This is an excellent article that explains the problems the .458 HAD and sets the record straight about all the old rumors surrounding the .458.
It is very interesting and informative.
