Some of our 45/70 (High Power) loyalists have requested that Steinel look into offering at least one load for the venerable 458 Winchester Magnum. It didn’t take long for our team to get to work on what would be our first “Steinel Custom” offering. This 500gr. Hornady bullet is driven to 2,100 FPS from a 24″ barrel. This bullet is constructed of a lead core, a steel jacket, and a copper outer jacket. The DGX offers expansion, along with the penetration you can expect from a 500 grain bullet with a muzzle velocity of > 2,000 FPS.
This round, in particular, delivers unparalleled performance on thick-skinned game from the largest of the common .458″ calibers. Whether your trip is to the Dark Continent or to your local range, this Steinel Custom round delivers exceptional performance, consistency, and reliability. It is loaded by a passionate Steinel operator, on one or more single stage presses.
