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

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
