458 SOCOM
Rifle Cartridge

Abbreviated Name:  458 SOCOM

 
 

TECHNICAL INFORMATION:

The 458 SOCOM was designed to fit the AR15 platform, and is capable of pushing a 300 grain bullet to 1950 fps, generating over 2500 foot pounds of muzzle energy, and 25 foot pounds of recoil. This is more recoil than a 30-06 shooting a 180 grain bullets at 2800 fps. Due to the heavy recoil of this round, it is very important to use a firm crimp as bullets can shift within the case under recoil, which can cause feeding issues. The 458 SOCOM performed best with A5744 and RL7, both performing very consistently, with RL7 producing the highest velocities.
