I recently learned the 458 Lott CZ rifle holds five down. I will most likely call this my next hunting rifle. After reading all my reloading manuals, they seem to use fairly fast/medium rate powders, and it's run at relatively low pressure for good velocity. Could I get away with cutting the barrel down to 20 inches? I was thinking of a peep sight, and no scope. Anyone have opinions on this round?
I was thinking about making a .475 caliber wildcat off the cz magnum. I was going to call it the .475 Smakaho magnum, but the five down .458 Lott trumps that!
