IMHO, it would be a simple task for a competent gunsmith to rechamber a .458 Win Mag to .458 Lott. I, however, am NOT a competent gunsmith (although I support a few). We will have to wait 'till a more knowledgable hand shows up to offer a more informed opinion..

I've got chamber drawin' for both cartridges , today if I get time I'll look them over and let You Know....A friend change His 458 Winny to a HOWELL 458 and thinks it is the greatest there is...He had a machine shop that barely kept Him and a Hi Dollar Darlin ' woman alive, young and beatiful equates to lots of Ben Franklins....She was absolutely an vehemently opposed to movin' from the mansion on Park ave. to the hills so he could Hunt Africa..He came in one evenin' said start packin' , I've sold this place , one week to get out an one week to Me headin' to Africa....She headed to the Divorce lawyer...Bobby Lee had cleaned out all bank accounts , canceled all credits cards , had booked the hunt and flight and sold the business to Me....I ran things for Him till He got back , I don't like steady work , steady work interfers with My HonkyTonkin' so I sold the Mess back to Him.....Blond Darlin' was workin' at the Waffle House last time I eat there , old gal don't look so good any more

Both are based on the H&H cased so far as chamberin' goes , no problem IF the HAND doin' the chamberin knows what HE is doin' ...Simultaneous Disassembly in a 1911 is one thing....In a 458 Lott it's a little difference....Caveat....Be sure the loaded 458 Lott rds will function thru the mauser mag ......the Lott case measures 2.800 inches........458Winny is 2.500...If the cartridges arn't too long, I'd go for it......That's like droppin' the mercury/lincoln flathead block in where a ford V 8 Sixty was

Well, there you have it kimber 1969--from a man who knows his shit ! ! If you stuff some Lincoln Zephyr gears in the tranny behind that big flathead, Wild Bill, you'd have the total package. NOW we're showing our age........
