My 458 Lott started out as a new Win mod 70 in 458 win. Re-chambered to 458 Lott, some work on the magazine box and ejector, a spacer and new pad brought the LOP to 14.5". Very happy with the stock dynamics on the new Winchesters
I have one and love it. Had a small issue with the barrel band and some mishandling of the rifle when it was sent in for repair. A couple emails and a phone call and it was handled by upper management promptly. They scored high marks with me by the way I was taken care of by them.I have a CZ 550 Safari Magnum in .458 Win Mag. I always had trouble with it feeding from the left side of the magazine. The shell would go crossways and the lead would catch at the back of the chamber jamming the rifle. I sent it to AHR and he did a rail job but that didn't help. I was informed that there was a factory fix so I sent it to Triple River. It came back doing the same thing and the bolt seemed to bind a little on pullback. In a fit of desperation I bought a new Winchester M70 .458 made in Portugal. It feeds flawlessly but was no where near as accurate as the CZ. So, in another fit of desperation I sent my CZ back to Triple River and had it bored to .458 Lott thinking that maybe the longer cartridge would feed better. Not so. Cartridges coming from the left still went crossways.
Today I just put a down payment on a new Kimber Caprivi in .458 Lott. If it's as good as their 1911's I feel it should be fine. Least ways I hope so. So if anyone has a Kimber Caprivi in .458 Lott any comments as to accuracy and functioning would be greatly appreciated.
I like the Kimber but like the RSM better.

Well the deal hasn't gone through yet. I'm having second thoughts that I should get the Sako 450 Rigby instead, but I haven't made up my mind yet!
