458 Lott

The 458 Lott was introduced by Jack Lott in 1971. After having been injured by a buffalo in Mozambique, Lott wanted more than a 458 Winchester Magnum. To improve the 458 WM the case was made 3/10 inch longer for more case capacity. 458 WM cartridges can be used in place of 458 Lott standard, and 458 Lott is the favorite cartridge used in the rifl es of many African Professional Hunters
