458 Win Mag but it will shoot the 458 American

which is the slightly shorter brass 458 Mag. It has the same ballistics but can be built on the medium action frame. I built one for Colleen before her first African hunt back in 1992. Her 458 is the one with the ebony stock and elephant ivory forend tip and grip cap. The gun above it is a 416 Rigby we built for Kase. It started out as a 375 H&H.

On this gun I wanted a good strong bolt action

that would be perfect for dangerous game so I chose the 458 Win Mag instead of a smaller GNR caliber.
