I absolutely love your rifle and love the .458 Winchester Magnum calibre . Here is a nice American brown bear which fell to my own .458 Winchester Magnum ( mine uses a 25 inch Douglas Premium barrel ) .

NICE but a bit light I'm glad you went for the magna porting. I bet she would be a noisy SOB with a bite at both ends.

Nice Rifle. Very pretty. I have few rugers and a few cz550's in 458 win mag. Havent tried any of them yet. Recently got couple of cases of Barnes 450gr ammo's. Stocked up with brass and bullets for reloading. I need to take some time off and do some range time. Your rifle is gorgeous.

Not too many people have good thing to say about Nosler partition for DG. How and what is your experience with them.

@krish
I can only speak for myself . I have successfully used them for broadside shots on Australian water buffalo . I have used them to hunt four American bears ( two black bears , two grizzly bears ) . I have also used them to shoot two marauding Royal Bengal tigers ( under the authorization of the Sundarban Forest Department ) and a marauding cheetah ( also known as Asiatic leopard ) under the authorization of the Maulvi Bazaar Forest Department . I have also successfully taken wild boars with them ( Bangladeshi , American , Australian and European ) . Too many to count . I have never had even the slightest problem .

This may also be of interest to you .

While not dangerous game , I successfully took this ibex with a single 250 grain Nosler Partition fired from a .338 Winchester Magnum .

Hi the dude in the picture. It would be cool to know the area (genetics) of the stag you have in your profile picture. I am from New Zealand and shot a stag here that is almost identical, especially the throw backs. I can send you a photo to prove I'm genuine with my enquiry.
