    I built a .458 a couple of years ago, but didn't start shooting it until a few months ago.

    It's a beast. My WWI era 30-06 bolt action is also a beast, but the .458 is a lot more fun to shoot.

    I buddy of mine. He has what seems to be endless amounts of play money. He bought it year back or so, & never used it. He also knows I have an extra lower with no upper. I haven’t even gone over to pick it up yet, but he gave me a good deal.

    More than I am willing to spend on a dot.That will need a riser too.

    For the same money or less I can get a Primary Arms ACSS scope.

    Most accessories are jacked up in the prices right now. I noticed PSA had a complete lower yesterday for $179 shipped. The online market might be hitting a lull. If Trump wins the violence will get really crazy. Beyond anything we have seen so far. It would be nice for the ammo supply to catch up and drop a little. I would love to get some more 9's, and AR15 food.

    It’s expensive, for sure, but more like $1.50 or so a round. Before things got crazy I was paying $1.25 - $1.30 a round, shipped.
    That’s for fmj ammo.
    Reloading is definitely in my future.

    You owe it to yourself to shoot one.
    I recommend a stock with a 1” thick pad, though.
