Winchester Guns M70 Safari Express Bolt Action 458 Winchester Magnum 24" Barrel 3+1 Rounds Grade I Walnut Stock

The Model 70 Safari Express in a matte blued finish is the perfect choice for your once-in-a-lifetime hunt because it's built to handle the heavy cartridges necessary to take dangerous game. Important details like the Pre-'64 type claw extractor, Pachmayr Decelerator recoil pad, barrel band front swivel base, hooded-blade front sight and express-style rear sight make the Safari Express ideal for any African hunt. The dual recoil lugs and two steel stock reinforcing crossbolts handle the punishment from heavy magnum loads. The secure hex socket action screws won't snag on clothing and the one-piece steel trigger guard helps maintain rigidity and provides added strength.

Caliber Dictionary

The Below Information Has Been Provided From Our Gun Caliber Dictionary And Is Meant For Informational Purposes Only. It Is Not Intended to Describe The Unique Specifications For This Ammunition.
The 458 Winchester Magnum was introduced in 1956 in a new "African" version of the Winchester Model 70. Timing couldn't have been better: Kynoch was discontinuing the Nitro Express cartridges, and the 458 Winchester Magnum soon became the world's most popular big-bore cartridge, adopted by almost all African game departments and thus probably responsible for the taking of as many buffaloes and elephants as all other cartridges combined. Today it's popular to bash the 458 because, with its 2.5-inch case, it ultimately proved impossible to maintain its original published ballistics of a 500-grain bullet at 2150 feet per second, for 5000 foot-pounds. With modern propellants the original ballistics are possible, but current standard loads use a 500-grain bullet at 2040 fps for 4620 foot-pounds. Either way, the 458 Winchester Magnum is adequate for the largest game, but in recent years has fallen to the sidelines due to the rebirth of older cartridges and the popularity of the 416s.  — Craig Boddington
