    Anyoe out there shooting 458 socom

    I want to use one for shooting up to 100m without needing earmuffs (my ears are pretty shot already) or frightening off everything else in the valley.

    I've done load work for the 458
    You want a subsonic only setup?
    There are better options avail.
    Bolt, single shot or semi ?

    I'm to far down the 458socom build to back out of it now. All I'm waiting for is the brass and my importer says that should be turning up in May.
    What I have is a 30-06 M17 bolt action, 458 barrel blank and a 458socom chamber reamer, go and no-go gauges. Once the brass turns up I'll get on with the machining.
    I'd be interested in hearing about your other options. I was originally going to go with a pistol cartridge 45gap 45s&w or something around that size.

    450BM is easiest to deal with brass wise

    no one who has used one could read this thread because they'd have detached retinas from the shots

    Bad recoil a!
    Maybe you're just pussys, wouldn't have thought there's enough powder in them.
    But I'll let you know - once the brass turns up!
