As title says, let me know if anyone has any laying around they're looking to get rid of, thanks!
 
I’m curious what cartridge you are loading with that bullet?
 
going to try them in my 45/70
I found it curious that swift doesn’t include this in the 458 Lott loading Data or the 458 Win Mag loading data but does for the 450 Marlin and the 45-70. I’m curious why?

It’s a good question, my guess would be that most people shooting a Lott or a win mag have the powder capacity to shoot larger weight bullets at appropriate speeds so why go smaller? I don’t think bullet integrity is an issue from the larger calibers shooting the bullet too fast as there are much faster 30 calibers shooting AFrames much faster.

There may be a technical answer but I am not aware of it
 
Tough to know for sure, but would be a fantastic plains game bullet and would flatten the trajectory on the Lott. I’ve been a fan of light for cal bullets in my 340 Weatherby using 180 gr for deer, and 300 grain for moose. I never knew they made the 350 grain in .457 untilI I saw your post, but it gave me the old “Spock“ eyebrow raise when I saw your post. I might have to experiment a little.
 
Surprisingly Swift had some 350gr .458 at DSC...glad I snagged a couple boxes because they appear to be unobtainium now.

You might check to see if NF has any 350gr available. That is the bullet I loaded in my 450 Dakota for Eland....which I never got to test on flesh!

Good morning. I'll take all of them actually. Whats the next step? Thanks, Derek
Have a look af our latest post on the biggest roan i ever guided on!


I realize how hard the bug has bit. I’m on the cusp of safari #2 and I’m looking to plan #3 with my 11 year old a year from now while looking at my work schedule for overtime and computing the math of how many shifts are needed….

I'd like to get some too.

My wife (a biologist, like me) had to have a melanoma removed from her arm last fall.

Hallo Marius- do you have possibilities for stags in September during the roar? Where are your hunting areas in Romania?
