    Default I wanted a 458 Socom...

    But now I'm not so sure. I saw one on Farcebook that had sheared the lugs from the bbl extension. Factory ammo, high dollar factory rifle. When I asked about it, folks said they have seen it happen more than once, with factory everything. So now I have shied away from it. Anyone here have any bad experience with the AR in this cartridge?

    Some are talking about a Rock River, Cor-Bon issue. The two companys blame each other of course. Chamber too tight, brass improperly sized. Hard too find any other real kabooms with other AR brands, ammo manufacturers. I just started researching this, so I really don't have much of a clue.

    On this one I really don't have an opinion either way. I quit hotroding the 45acp decades ago after blowing out the magazine and cracking a grip sending splinters into my palm and switched to a revolver soon after. Not saying the AR can't be made to go over .30 caliber but not for me when a 45-70 kicks it butt. Gas,pressure on a system designed for a 308 and then downsized for a stretched 221. Now being upsized for a chamber area it wasn't conceived for kinda bothers me. It's been working so far for people tho so what the hey?

    GMWilly sells 458 so coms.. but he builds them himself.

    he shoots it a lot... might ask him which components he uses.

    costing more than my 50bmg to shoot stopped me on this one.
