Bought a Ruger #1 in 458 Win Mag..... The more I look at the the cartridge and the gun the more nervous I get.... Now I know how the sheep feel when "The Pirate" walks into the 4H booth at the fair. The prior and only other owner fired it five times and he bought it new in 1976..... This might be a good one to let a friend shoot first....

But for 4 hundred bucks I couldn't pass it up...

458 Win are great. You will NEED a good butt pad. And watch out for scopes that bite. The muzzle will rise considerably on those. It isn't as bad as a 460 Weatherby though.510 grain bullets make rocks into pebbles.

Do they make chicken shit loads for the 458? Not like I'm headed to Africa next week for cape buff or anything....

Did you get 1/2 box of 1976 shells to go with it?
