In a couple of recent posts it's become clear that many of our members find PPU brass to be quite good quality and definitely value for money. I use it for .375 H&H and 9.3x74R. Unfortunately PPU doesn't make cases in either .458 Win Mag or .458 Lott. That leaves supply options largely restricted to Norma or Hornady. Norma in particular is very expensive.

However PPU already make a number of cases based on the H&H belted magnum: 7mm Rem Mag, .300 Win Mag and .375 H&H Mag, This means they effectively have every thing need to produce 458 Win Mag & 458 Lott without significant additional tooling or processes.

I'm thinking it might be useful if those who are interested sent an email to PPU suggesting they add .458 Win Mag and 458 Lott brass to their product line.
The PPU email contact details can be found on their website: https://www.prvipartizan.com/contact.php

you mean Winchester no longer makes 458 Win Mag brass? Evidently they have really GTH.

For Serbian or ex Yugo hunters, the standard was, and still is in many cases: PPU ammo, for Zastava rifle.
However, in decades past, even in times when goverment had socialist planned economy, there was never 458 win mag ammo by PPU, despite the fact zastava produces 458 win mag rifle. And despite the fact that PPU produces 375 ammo. (and zastava makes 375 hh rifle)
So, good luck with that.

Another strange fact for large factory on international market (strange fact, at least to me), S&B does not make even 375 H&H ammo, and they do make a wide variety of calibers. Nor do they make 458 as well...

I believe grafs brass is made by ppu. I’d imagine a large enough order could convince Grafs to do a run of either

I did a little housekeeping in my shop and found some .500 Jeffery ammo that I no longer need. Superior Ammunition and Hendershots loaded them, along with AHR (American Hunting Rifles). Several Woodleigh/A-Square solids along with lead bullets in both 535g and 600g. Message me for any details.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
