If you do want to reload for the 458,buy your brass directly from Starline.You'll save $$ buying from them,but you'll have to buy a minimum of 250pcs.Unless the price has changed,it was $204 / 250pcs,the last time I bought some.
I use Lee dies,and do not crimp my bullets.I have tried crimping,but all it did was give me pressure spikes on my loads.
You will also want to use Imperial Sizing Wax for lube on the 458 SC brass,most other case lube's don't work very good with this brass,and you will have stuck case problems when re-sizing your brass.
Up front,you won't save much loading your own 458 ammo,but just by reusing the brass,you save every-time you reload a case.I have some brass that has been reloaded 8-10 times,and is still in very good shape.Just keep it trimmed within spec,and don't load too hot-this brass will last a long time.
