I picked up a Ruger RSM in 458 Lott from another member here a few months ago. I haven’t been able to spend much time with it but finally got it to the range today. It’s set up with a Leupold Euro 1-4x. I didn’t fire it much but am pleased with the results. The attached target is from the sticks at 75 yards. The center group was Norma factory with 500 grain Woodleigh softs. The two shots on the right we’re from hand loads with Hornady solids. I’ve got some Woodleigh solids on the way. Hopefully they will shoot to the same POI as the softs and tighten the group up a bit. If not, I’m sure some load tweaking will get me there!

I'm sure that after you go there with that rifle the natives will be calling you the deadliest creature in Africa.

Nice grouping off the sticks with the softs! Good luck with the solids, I’m sure you will get them close enough to the softs.

Not bad. However, I’m wondering if that is the reason for the difference with the solids. Those were my last two shots. Maybe it was me. I’ll give it a try again next weekend but will shoot the solids first. It definitely lets you know that you pulled the trigger!

It would be wise to sight it in with a sled/shooting rest of some sort to save your shoulder.
For me, shooting off sticks is for practice and verifying accuracy.

Use a past recoil shield when practicing you won’t need it on real game as you won’t feel the recoil or even notice it.

Yes, that's what Craig Boddington said. He not only doesn't rembember the recoil he doesn't remember much of the next hour either (When the .600 Doubled).

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
