any recs on a gun 338lapua? kinda partial to bolt guns.. etc..
Armalite AR50 goes for 2500ish and will shoot right along with a barrett.JLA, I've heard those low end Barret 50's can be had for $4700. I keep dreaming and talking about one; I was going on last year if ya remember, ha ha.
.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 .30-06what's the practical limit on 458lott?
is it a beater cartridge or something? how would it compair to 416 rigby?
Cartridges suitable to take the 'big 5' are anything equaling or exceeding the power of the .375 H&H. The .375 ruger is quickly becoming very very popular because its flat shooting and more powerful.ouch that's alot of foot pounding!
when you refer to big 5? what do you group in the 'big 5'
375 h&h or 338 lapua in there?
any of the 416 in there ( rem/rig/etc )
