    WTD CZ 550 458 Lott

    I'm trying to find a 458 Lott CZ 550 Lux or similar

    I might have to import one if I can't find one locally

    The largest CZ I have found when looking was a 416 Rigby.
    I asked about the 458 Lott and they said it falls into the special import item and they only do a run of making them when they have enough orders. And they couldn't tell me when that was.
    They said there were none in the country. But not 100% sure on that.

    That's why I got the 416 Taylor made. I still have the reamer.

    Yeah all BS....got told none here or in Aussie, they couldn't be bothered getting me one apparently....plenty in the States but.....

    I have recently acquired a 375 H&H to go with my 416 Rigby, I would like a bigger sibling, have dies, brass, projectiles & scope.

    I got a 375 H&H last year and I had the same idea of getting an older sibling for it but the 416 was over 3k.
    I opted to having a 416 Taylor built on a Remington 700 action instead.
    Made the decision easier when I brought dies, cases and reamer for $130.

    The build cost far less than what the CZ did.
