.458 socom


Mars Armory Corso

A custom bolt-action rifle built around the Remington 700 but chambered in .458 SOCOM. Normally this large caliber cartridge is seen in AR-15′s but a few bolt-action guns have been modified to use it. Note the AR magwell adapter that allows the Corso to use AR mags. The .458 SOCOM is not a long range bullet so it wouldn’t achieve any sort of meaningful ballistic advantage from a longer barrel. (GRH)

Remington 700

Custom built 700 by Breakneck Creek Precision Rifle Co (BNCP). This is chambered in .458 SOCOM, hence the AR-15 magazine adapter. Generally .458 SOCOM is a heavy hard hitting but short range caliber for the AR platform, a favorite for some hog hunters. The owner/seller mentions the camouflage pattern used is KUIU. (GRH)

That’s off the top of my head, I’m sure that I’m missing a few.

.458 SOCOM

A large caliber option for the AR-15, the .458 SOCOM is rather popular as a hog hunting platform. Only a few companies actually make dedicated .458 rifles, primarily Wilson Combat and Rock River Arms. You can still build your own just by getting the barrel and bolt carrier group and installing them on your choice of upper. (GRH)

The new SilencerCo Hybrid Demo. 

Designed to be one of the most versatile suppressors on the market, the Hybrid is user configurable from small bore and handgun rounds, all the way up to the large calibers like 458 Socom and 300 Win Mag, while still remaining extremely lightweight. This can will be an awesome choice for those just getting into the NFA game. 


The 12.7x42mm round more commonly referred to as the 50 Beowulf, is a large caliber option for the AR-15 platform. It isn’t unique concept since it does have rival calibers such as the .450 Bushmaster and .458 SOCOM. As a hunting cartridge the 50 Beowulf is quite capable of bringing down most if not all large game on the American continent. The Russians actually developed their own version of the Beowulf concept; the TsKIB ASh-12, a rifle chambered in 12.7x55mm. (GRH)

.458 vs 5.56x45mm

Obviously due to the size of the cartridge, you can only fit just a handful of .458 SOCOM into a standard 30 round AR-15 magazine. It does pose an interesting hunting dilemma that may differ from state to state. For example, if your state limits magazine capacity as 10 rounds when hunting, and you can only fit 8 rounds of .458 SOCOM inside a mag, you’re using (or have turned) a 30 round mag into an 8 round mag because of the caliber. Technically however it’s still a 30 round magazine designed for the 5.56x45/.223, so it may still be restricted in spite only being able to hold 8 rounds of .458. It would come down to how your local wildlife officials / game wardens interpret it.(GRH)
