Just got a rifle in .458 SOCOM today and will be reloading for it just as soon as I can gather some components and good data.

"IF" you reload for this Cal I'd be interested in your experiences and component choices..

TIA.. [smilie=cheers1.gif]

Know one?
Bummer, from all accounts this is a friggin COOL caliber with some serious THUMP..
Ammo is quite tough to find and for now brass is scarce too.. Hoping to find some good data, while I found the .458 Socom forums last I heard registration was locked out for some reason?

Looking to reload for this also. Ever find any data? I'm trying to run cast loads through it.

Thanks. I developed some loads but they didn't cycle the action properly. I used TrailBoss, go figure.

I developed some more loads with H110 but haven't tried them out yet.
