quest for 458 SOCOM reamer hit a snag
I have been looking for a a 458 SOCOM reamer and this is the answer I got. Thank you for your note and your interest in the .458 SOCOM. Due to our licensing agreement with Rock River Arms for the production of AR-15s in .458 SOCOM, the reamers have been classified as proprietary and the makers have been advised as such. However, we can assist you in building a bolt action rifle in this caliber, having already built a couple of them. For Savage rifles, we can sell you the barrel and have you drop it in your action, for Remingtons and others, we have a local shop that does the work for us (we do not do the bolt work ourselves). Let us know what you had in mind and we can work out a solution with you

I suspose they would be cutting there throats by letting others manufacture there design. how ever if this cartrage does not take off will it die a slow death like so many other wild cat designs.I may look into the price of a barrel chamberd in this or perhaps a wild cat version of this round say .002 shorter call it the .459 BIGGUN. any of you guys ever make a reamer? . this is what I had in mind
http://www.tromix.com/Tromix_458.htm in a pistol who can make me a reamer with out violating the law. as long as I dont sell barrels in 458 SOCOM I would be ok correct. how does all the reamers made for all the other brands of proprietery round get done. I think I will get a price on a chamberd barrel first.
