Very nice!

TOO damn sweet!!

What kind of range and accuracy do you get outta that rig!?!?

I am gonna buy an AR in the next couple months and would like a bit of feed back. 458 is LEGAL to hunt deer with here...that would definatley give it a leg up on the 5.56 if the range and accuracy were comparable.

I wanted the AR 10...but discarded that idea due to weight of the gun, ammo cost and lack of real world usefulness here. Ar-15 in 5.56 is in the lead simply due to ammo cost/availability.

This 458 is not light. I think when I put mine on the scale it was around 11 pounds. Nor is the ammo cheap. 3-5$ a round based on what type you buy. At 100yds i can shoot 2 1/2 in groups. I havent shot it past 100 yds but it would take a Deer down very easy.
I think you can get 250gr to 650gr bullets for it. I shoot the 350gr and 400gr. Also it will use the 223/5.56 mags and any Milspec AR lower.

WOW, was just pricing the ammo...STUPID money!! Makes 308 seem affordable like .22 LR....like $50 a 20!! Thats like 500 mag. prices!

Guess its back to the 5.56 :(

For a poor peasant like myself i have to reload for everything anymore!

I bet the 458 brass and bullets are salty to boot....

Im not sure about the cost of brass and such to reload. I will find out soon. I did buy some dies for it but have yet to order any reloading stuff. I just been using the factory ammo from SBR. I have seen used brass selling around 1.00$


Just did a quick search and it seems brass is down to around .75 each now.
Gettin better!
