I'm compiling a list of all the currently available factory loads for .458 Win Mag to compare ballistics and cost before stocking up for my new rifle. Are there any others available that I don't have included below? Are there any factory loads available in less than 400 grains or is that exclusive to the reloading world? Does anyone produce a factory load that hits that magical 2,150 fps with a 500grain projectile?
|458 Win Mag||Weight||Muzzle Energy (ft-lb)||Muzzle Velocity (fps)|
|Federal (Bonded Bear Claw)||400||4,496||2,250|
|Buffalo Bore (Dangerous Game)||450||4,835||2,200|
|Federal (Bonded Bear Claw)||500||4,849||2,090|
|Hornady (Dangerous Game)||500||5,084||2,140|
|Norma (African PH)||500||4,897||2,100|
