it does far less meat damage than my 308. im using 350grn hornady round nose bullets. its basically a 45cal hole on one side and a 50 cal exit hole. the scope i have on it has been losing zero bouncing around in a 4 wheeler first deer was barely hit in the lung it left such a huge blood trail in bad terrain i walked to it with no trouble. second hit just in front of the hip went just under the spine. shock from the round killed it instantly. i spent more time searching for and lost more meat to bullet damage on the two i hit perfectly in the shoulder with my 308 than i did with the two way off hits by the 458. gona re-scope the 458 for next year with a lightweight night force.

I got a small 5 pointer in etowah right down the road from you a couple weeks ago, and also saw a bunch of does.

So far I'm 0 for 3. Haven't had much time to go, just a few hours on Sat. afternoons here and there. My BIL has killed three on our place. I've heard a few in the woods but haven't seen any yet.
