HISTORY:  Big Game hunter and writer Jack Lott sustained injuries with a encounter with a Cape Buffalo while hunting Mozambique.  The year was 1959 and he was using the then new 458 Winchester.  The bad experience is what provided the inspiration for a more powerful dangerous game rifle.   Originally the 458 Lott cases was achieved by fireforming 375 H&H brass, .458 diameter bullets need a rebated shank prior to seating into the H&H brass.  A-Square offered the 458 Lott commercially in 1989.
