Hi All, anyone have load data for 458 Lott wit Peregrine 500 gr VRG-2 solids and VRG3 softs with Vihtavuori N550 powder or maybe willing to run a Quickload for me ?

Also anyone used Gordons Reloading Tool ? Freeware copy of Quickload it seems. If I can get a Quickload file, I will compare it to the Gordons results or maybe just publish it here. Freware and things that go bang-I think I am right to be a little cautious- hehe.

Hi Nhoro, I load the 500grain vrg3 in my CZ 458 Lott using 75grains of Vithavouri N530. This is the grouping I am getting with open sights and my not so great eyes at 25 meters. Hope this helps

Thanks for the data, if only we could still get S.....anything anymore. Have to resort to imported propellants for the moment

Nhoro, just a quick check but on QL with 80gr of N550 and Cartridge length of 92.5mm 102.4% case filled if case takes 110gr of H2O will give you a speed of 2150fps and no pressure at all.

But normally QL is not as acurrate as predicted.

I had to squeeze in more powder than QL prediction to get the speed I wanted out of my lott.

N550 will not be my first choice in powder something a bit faster like Norma 203B or N540

G’day Geoff,
Mate, I noticed you purchased a rifle from overseas.... can you tell me the procedure of importing a rifle to Australia from a private seller?
Cheers

I did a little housekeeping in my shop and found some .500 Jeffery ammo that I no longer need. Superior Ammunition and Hendershots loaded them, along with AHR (American Hunting Rifles). Several Woodleigh/A-Square solids along with lead bullets in both 535g and 600g. Message me for any details.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
