big bore advice
I'm considering getting a 458 for recreational and maybe downloaded hunting use. I've looked at cz550 and Win mod 70. Also saw Zastava at noticeably lesser cost but am concerned about quality or having to put more into it. Also saw that the 550 has a "larger" action and more magazine capacity. After reading about crossbolts and bedding, I'm concerned about stock cracking but those issues may have been addressed by now (CZ). I saw CZ had 458 Lott and 416 Rigby for the same price, too. I handload and have read the Lott vs Win arguments but it's said that the Win has come a long way with modern (and cheaper!) components. Big difference in brass price. So, I'm trying to decide that, too. I'm not really looking to scope it. Any suggestions appreciated, Thanks.
