The .458 SOCOM is a powerful, big-bore cartridge designed to provide superior stopping power. Ideal for both hunting and tactical applications, this cartridge was developed as a response to requests for more potent ammunition for military operations. Firearms chambered in the SOCOM round  offer shooters the advantage of significant ballistic capabilities in a familiar AR-15 platform. This unique blend of versatility and potency has cemented the .458 SOCOM’s place in the firearms industry, becoming a top choice for those seeking enhanced firepower.  The cartridge was made to be 100% compatible with many of the AR-15 parts.  The round fits in .223/5.56 magazines but single stacks rather than double stacks.
