airedale Posted March 10 Share Posted March 10 Time of the year where I have been doing some straightening out of the stuff in my gun room creating some order. I did not realize how much 458 Winchester Mag stuff I had laying around from a rifle I owned back in the 80s. Between some loaded ammo and loading components I bet I have close to a grand's worth sitting here doing nothing, although some of the components I can and do use for 45-70s. Nothing like a good excuse to get something to fire this stuff off, so I found a new SSK stainless Encore barrel chamber in 458 Win Mag that will go right on one of my frames, it also has a threaded barrel so I can put a muzzle brake on it. Hit the loading bench and put up some 350 gr, a couple of batches of 400 gr and some 500 gr. Wanted the little Leupold 2.5X ultra light but can not find one anywhere so I ordered the Leupold 1X4 variable along with a muzzle brake. Should all be here in a week or so. The lead Sled I picked up last summer is going to get a real workout. My old 458 was one of the most fun firearms I have ever owned and I am happy I have another one.
