Hi All,

Just wanted to share some info. Have recently acquired a CZ 550 in 458 Lott caliber and was wondering if any of you have any experience with peregrine bullets 500 grain VRG3 and Reloader 15. I loaded up 70,2 grains of RL 15 using the Peregrine 500 grainers, and was very happy with the accuracy and the recoil.
Any suggestions on a powder best suited for the Lott and 500 grain monolithics would be greatly appreciated.

I don't use any monolithics in my Lott but I do reload everything with RL15 for my Lott. I'm pushing 500 grain Woodleigh RNSN at 2230fps and 500 grain Woodleigh PPSN at 2300fps both with 84 grains of RL15. Woodleigh shows a max charge of 85 grains , Swift shows a max charge of 83 grains for the 5oo grain A-frame at 2229fps.

Hi Aussie_Hunter,
Thanks for the feedback! I will be trying some Woodleigh bullets in the future, and your data will be of great help. Thanks!!

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
