i have been reading the thread on the ar15 forum, but what do you guys think of the two, and why would you pick one over the other?
For the next raffle one of the prize's would be Cold's SSa 1c fired brass ...LOL :shock:Which gives me a thought. I will gladly take your fired SSA cases off your hands for you so it doesn't fill up your trash can.
I gave all my 1x brass away to someone already. Sorry guys.zoli818 said:For the next raffle one of the prize's would be Cold's SSa 1c fired brass ...LOL :shock:Which gives me a thought. I will gladly take your fired SSA cases off your hands for you so it doesn't fill up your trash can.

This is what I was thinking. Also add that RRA builds a fairly inexpensive upper for low entry costaxeltow said:from what i read and or understand,
+uses normal gi mags
-ammo costs more
+has more reliable feeding
I have one of those too.... between the 458 SOCOM, 50 beo and 450 Bush, the 450 Bush would be my last choice of the three, only one loading offered and very little reloading data, it is a new round though so there may be more on the way, only time will tell. The 458 SOCOM has been around since 01-02 for sure with ammo by at least 4 people, Corbon, SBRammunition (on midway usa too), reedsammo.com and accuswageAramark said:thanks for all the information guys. now what about throwing the .450 bushmaster in the mix?
I have found 450 B ammo for 24 bucks per box before shipping at cheeper than dirt, but that was back in march too.remat457 said:The only advantage I see of the 450BM is that Hornady is loading it. Should be less expensive than CorBon in SOCOM.
But, I don't see it locally on the shelf. I suspect it is not cheap either...
In my opinion the 458 SOCOM and 6.8 comparison is an apples to oranges kind of deal.Wardog said:noobie question: I thought AR15 platforms didnt adapt very well to larger calibers? Wouldnt a heavier duty lower (ie. 308) hold up better?
If this is the case then 458 upper is a possible "upgrade" to a 6.8spc platform?
