    Hi, Im fairly new to reloading and only been doing 223. Been reading up on .458 Socom and seems one of my books has nothing on it and one only has limited load data. Anyone here reloading .458 easily with reliable results ? Powders, projectiles, load data ?? Any info appreciated.

    I used the Berry’s 45-70 profile bullets and found out that you have to seat OAL really short with em... They now have a Socom profile, that I wanna try next time.

    There was Troy blue with the initial round of 458 ammo available. Some shot fine but some would stick in chamber. Don’t remember why but you may want to check your loads carefully before you run them live.
