Completely new to this. . . became fascinated by the whole thing when shopping around for a rifle chambered in .458 Lott. Being poor, I have settled on a CZ550 "American Safari Magnum". Going to put one on layaway November 1st, at "Budsgunshop". I reload and cast for most all of my firearms. Haven't shot a rifle larger than a 45-70 government. I do shoot a BFR in 500 S&W Mag in a handgun, I have loaded it up to 465 gr bullets at 1700 fps, pretty stout for a 7.5" handgun but I'm sure that the .458 Lott will be an eye opener! Someday it would be great to hunt Cape Buffalo, but it might be a pipe dream. Maybe not. Just might take 4-5 years to save enough money Thanks for having me! I can enjoy African hunting vicariously, for now.
