.458 lott is essentially the special version of the .458 win mag. its an african big 5 hunting cartridge. not to be taken lightly. inside of 200 yds it is like a shoulder fired howitzer.. I say 200 because of the rainbow trajectory of the meteor like projectiles. They run out of velocity fast and gravity reminds them that they arent airplanes rather quickly. But boy do they hit. Dont hold me to it but I think the lott generates in the ballpark of 8500 ft lbs of energy on target at 100 yds. Thats 3 times the .30-06
