Should say on the barrel what caliber the rifle is chambered for. We need that to reply to your question. Most likely, though, it's not a .458 Win Mag chamber.

I figured it out it is a 45-100.

That's sounds like a real nice rifle. Would love to see some pics if you got 'em. Shiloh makes a gorgeous rifle.
