PondoroAs I wrote..yes I shot elephant with the .458 500 grain solid by Woodleigh..these bullets have very thick steel envelopes..
No, I never used homogeneous brass bullets...for the obvious difficulty with lack of powder space..
However, PMP, the South african cartridge Company load .458 ammo With a 475 grain brass bullet...I have no idea how it performs...perhaps Lvw knows..?
Thanl you so much for your thorough explanation. As l understand it then :
While the modern homogeneous metal bullet has largely replaced the metal envelope bullet in most calibres , the .458 Winchester magnum calibre is one of the few which still benefits from the metal envelope bullet .
