Actually the Ruger doesn't shoot bad at all IF you fill the stock bolt hole up with cast bullets. It help balance it out quite well also.

WRT Zastava rifles;
An oufitter friend bought a Zastava in 375 mag and used it for bullet testing and for loaning to Africa bound clients and one of them liked it so much that he bought the rifle after using it to shoot his Cape buff.

I know both guys and the buyer does like his Zastava rifle and he offered it to me for a trip, but I already have a .405 and .458 and chose to use mine.

Conclusion ? Zastava sounds OK from here on the sidelines and the price seems unbeatable.

PS, If you pass through Dallas, I ma be able to arrange for you to shoot the Z.458.

5 1/2 year old thread, evidently we're not done talking about it yet.
Zastava is a good rifle, l have one in 375H&H. The more l shoot it the smoother the action and trigger gets. Very accurate (y):LOL:

Well it's a conundrum. Sometimes we like to bring up something from an old thread that we found in a search. If there were locked archives, this would not happen and would instead appear as a new thread catching an equal amount of hell in the different form of "we've already covered this..."
I say hooray for using the search function and who can blame him...he believes a lever action can kill an elephant...:ROFLMAO:

I hope your hunting season has started off well. I am coming to Namibia for the 7th time in late April of 2022. I am bringing two friends who have never hunted outside of the USA. I have several questions, but before I write them all, I will wait to see if you receive this. Please give a shout................................best regards.........................Bill...............Idaho, USA

Does anyone know where to buy a chamber reamer to convert .458 win to .458 Lott? I hear it is very easy to do—?

Do you still have the set of gaiters you talked about on the site? Gerry
