Whose can are you using on a .458 Lott? What model? I have seen a .338 suppressor and a .50 BMG but never one for a .458. Did you have it custom made?
It is a custom can. It is done by AWC (I am a bit worried because I have a read some bad stuff) it is basically it is there 50 caliber can but build with 458 caliber parts.

I wish I could find someone who would make a can (that works well with a hot loaded 45/70 and 458 Lott) that I can take apart for less than $2000.00 I am not picky about size or weight. I would literally be good with a can 3 foot long and 6 inch in diameter.

one of the problems is that the 45/70 is a lever action and I dont want to loose more than 1 round of capasity so you are limmited to 1 inch with out loss or 3 inches with a loss of 1 round. Most out fits want to have the suppressor over lap the barrel like 4 to 6 inches.
Shot placement is everything! I would rather take a round of 50BMG to the foot than a 22short to the base of the skull.

all 26 of my guns are 45/70 govt, 357 mag, 22 or 12 ga... I believe in keeping it simple. Wish my wife did as well...
