    I think only straight walled rifle calibers and shotguns are permitted for hunting Ohio Deer during gun season.

    What is a 458 Lott? Not bottlenecked to my eye....but yes, it is not listed.

    Still, a 300 gr bullet at 2500 fps sweet!

    I'm not from Ohio and don't know all of their firearms limitations. However I thought that Ohio was limited to Shotguns and Muzzleloaders for long guns until relatively recently. I think that a cartridge designed for use on African Dangerous Game is above and beyond.

    I live just east of Columbus. I showed a .458 Lott round to a wildlife officer and he said it was OK... so I did, but didn’t get a deer. Basically it is a LOOOONG .450 Marlin.
    The rules state straight walled or tapered. The Lott qualifies.

    Until a few years ago the lower third of Michigan was restricted to Shotgun, Muzzleloader and straight walled Pistol cartridges. No bottlenecked cases allowed. The DNR then revised that policy to allow straight walled rifle cases conforming to specific dimensions. For several years now, some of my buddies have been "gaming" the system and now use rifles whose ballistics far exceed the "spirit" of the new laws. The restrictions were put there in the first place because of the higher population density and to some extent the smaller plots of land suitable for hunting. Just for giggles a 458 Lott develops slightly less than 6,000 lbs. of energy with a 500 Gr. bullet while a 30-06 develops around 3,300 lbs. of energy with a 180 Gr. bullet.

    Well, I never questioned if it would be an adequate stopper!

    Hi nksmfamjp,

    Khomas Highland Hunting Safaris of Namibia, welcomes you to the greatest forum on earth.
    The .375 H&H, loaded with 300 grain Swift A-Frame bullets is a decent buffalo getter.
    Plus, it is quite an excellent caliber for so called “plains game” as well.
    However, speaking strictly about African buffalos and heavy African game in general, cartridges such as the .404 Jeffery, .416 Rigby and .458 Lott are, provided you consistently shoot them well, so much the better for heavy/dangerous game hunting.

    Cheers,
    Paul
