It only took me four years and three different importers but I finally got my left handed Zastava Mauser in 458 Win Mag.
Now to just find the perfect varmint load, I'm thinking a 450 grain Northfork at 2200 fps, that should be good for over 4,800 ft/Lbs of energy.

Mice. That should be fun to shoot. :good:
You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.

Beautiful rifle! Congrats. Hope you are really happy with it. Some of us also know what it is like to wait that long to get what we want. I wish you the best of luck with it and many happy hunting trips.
