    Default Safely shoots .458 Lott ammo in .450 Ackley rifle?

    Hello,
    I seek professional advice. I have been told by a PH on my last hunt in Botswana that he can safely shoots .458 Lott and .458 Win ammunitions in his .450 Ackley rifle and he has been doing this for quite a while. Can these .458 Lott and Win ammos be fired with other .450 Ackley rifles?

    Thanks.
