I would tend to agree except.........when it doesn't go well...then it's like dealing with pre menstrual women at the wrong time of the month that went into the bathroom and found all that lovely beard stubble in the sink because you just shaved. In attempting to cleaning up.....well you didn't! Do I speak from experience....Hell Yeah!Shooting is definitely therapeutic treatment. If the shooting goes well, it's a great confidence builder.
don't want this to turn into a WM vs Lott thing as it's been done to death but with top handloads the difference between the 2 isn't as much as most people think.
nicely done, with careful hand loading using proper powders it is possible to get these velocities.
i will have to disagree with there not being much of difference between the cartridges. you can fit a great deal more powder in a 458 Lott which means a great deal more power OR much lower pressures. the standard velocity of 2300fps is hardly the limit for the cartridge but no more velocity is really needed.
Gorgeous M70, regardless of bullet speed! M70s have always been my favorite in their price range. Is that not a custom safari express? Or is it the standard safari express? With all due respect, if you don't already know, you should find out, the custom is worth considerably more than the standard. And I really want to know also!!!

It really is a shame that the .458 Winchester Magnum can't be mentioned without it being compared to the Lott.
So of course the Lott has a higher MV due to its bigger case but its in the region of 100 - 150fps which I don't consider a huge margin.
