    458 Lott with 3031 and RL15

    Have loaded the 458 Lott for about 25 years. Found that Imr 4320 was the only powder that gave me fpm that I wanted. As IMR 4320 is no more went on a hunt to find a replacement.

    Pushing through myths and misconceptions: The Push Feed Action

    If the extractor is your only concern then convert to a Sako or better yet an m14/4 claw type. Have done so on many from 300 Wby to 458 Lott.Started converting more then 50 years ago and all conversions still fault free. Simple conversion.

    Lee Factory Crimp Die

    The Lee will fit a RCBS Rockchucker if you remove the adapter bushing on the tool. Not an issue other having a wrench to fit. The Lee die works great. No loss of 416 Rigby cases with this die ie pushing the shoulders back doing the crimping.

    Got the CZ blues

    I would start by trying to find 3or4 loaded Lott cartridges and load them in the mag they won’t chamber all the way but should show you if feed improves. My second step would be to purchase a new follower spring and install that. Third find a gunsmith.
