    A buddy of mine contemplated putting one together.
    (it never got done)

    Inexpensive 3" cylinder brass was available in large lots, making reloading cheap and avoiding time consuming and meanial case trimming work.

    8 more grains capacity over the 458 Lott cartridge gives you a formidable round.


    Good luck with the build.
