This one is from the 70s but I can't remember the year off the top of my head.

The .458 was a cartidge that always interested me. Just seemed different and I'm not one for the common stuff. The shop I frequented got one in and I made the drive. Checked it over, set it down and went back to it a couple times debating the purchase. I passed mostly due to ammo costs/availabilty locally. (didn't want to add another to reload). Went with one I wanted more , a .405 so not a loss big picture. :)

Beauts both, but I'll bet they get your attention when the go off! Along with attention of anything downrange.

And that wood from another era is something else. Just don't see that on factory guns anymore.

Nothing wrong with a #1 .405. I had one and swapped it to my son. It was very accurate and the best balanced #1 of them all.
