The 358 Norma is super cool too and you can get brass and ammo for it. Norma makes excellent brass, I never had any issues with either the 308 or 358 version.
I run 405 powder coated in my 458 Win. , there was a learning curve. I was told you didn’t need gas checks on powder coated cast , wrong if you push them 2000fps. 1700’s and Blue Dot works for me.A couple of 458 Win mag loads featuring the 405 gr cast bullet that is so popular in the 45-70 cartridge. The top one is very mild, likely quite fun to shoot. The second one is slightly more powerful than the toughest 45-70 loads:

And of course you can take it up to more powerful 500 grain loads in the 2100 - 2200 fps range...
