It was always my dream to have a client come to India , for shikar ... Armed with a .300 Holland & Holland magnum caliber pre 64 Winchester Model 70 , Bill . Unfortunately , by the time my career had commenced ( 1961 ) ... You American gentle men had almost universally adopted the .300 Winchester magnum caliber .Well written and informative. I remember looking at the compact little .458 cartridge as a boy, and wondering why they had decided upon a 2.5 inch case, at a time when they were offering the much longer .300 H&H and .375 H&H chamberings in their Mod 70's. Later, I owned a light push feed bolt in 458 and found the recoil intolerable. Despite it's diminutive size, it proved too much for me. Thanks for taking the time to write such a fine article.................Bill
What brand was your push feed .458 Winchester magnum caliber rifle ?
