730 Grain Wide Flat Nose Gas Check (.458)


These are well cast bullets. I followed the other reviewers (Jeff Kelly) footsteps and in a 458 Lott case found H4895 to be okay but not optimum. I found that IMR4320 seems to be a good powder for these bullets in the Lott case. I have a 1-14 twist and would recommend something faster for lower velocities. At 1850-1900 fps they fly true and destroy on both ends of the gun. I think sized to .459 would be interesting to try as well. I had no leading of barrel on any of the rounds I tested though. I may try W748 as well but I'm not sure one could stuff enough powder in the case to cause issues.

Quickloads would be great if I had it. I poured over the internet and I did find this was the TRex bullet and the original caster had some measure of load data for it...work up slowly. IMR4320 for me is THE powder for 458 Lott.
