Designed specifically for hunting dangerous game, Norma's African PH ammunition is focused on delivering devastating bullet momentum with high sectional density and "Knock Out Value". This involves loading heavy-for-caliber bullets into some of the world's largest and most respected big game cartridges.
The .458 Lott has become a favorite choice among bolt-action rifles, and has a well-earned reputation as a game-stopper. Using the belted case and same length as the .375 H&H, the .458 Lott has plenty of case capacity, to generate very respectable muzzle energies. Norma’s African PH ammunition is a perfect choice for the .458 Lott.
Norma loads the following bullets for the .458 Lott:
550-grain Woodleigh Weldcore Soft Point: Using the classic British nose profile and a proprietary bonding process, the .458 Lott will generate a muzzle velocity of 2,100 fps with this heavy slug, making it absolutely perfect for any situation where a quality soft-point is required. With high weight-retention and good Sectional Density, the Woodleigh Weldcore is the bullet of choice for lion, grizzly, hippo and buffalo.
550-grain Woodleigh Solid: Maintaining the same nose profile as its soft point counterpart, the Woodleigh Solid will deliver a non-expanding bullet to the same point of impact. The Woodleigh Solid is a perfect choice for elephant, or for backup shots on buffalo, where straight-line penetration is paramount.
500-grain Norma Solid: At a muzzle velocity of 2,300 fps, the Norma Solid will penetrate thick hide and bone from any angle. The monometal construction will resist deformation and bending.
