Midway sells brass,but I usually just buy mine straight from Starline Brass.
I'd suggest getting some Imperial Sizing Wax to use for sizing your cases,the 458 brass is known to stick in the sizing die,and after trying out my usual case lubes,I decided to try Imperial.It flat works excellent.

I've had some really good loads with Remington 300gr JHP & 405gr FN,and I'm working on some with the Nosler C/T Silvertip 300gr and the Hornady 325gr FTX bullets.
I have several loads that shoot around .75 moa out of this beast.

Well I saw it coming... and it did make me consider running a hydrolic buffer
I think it's sad that Vince was pushed as far as he was, what with a pregnant wife, and a nephew fighting cancer, oh, and his dog having to be put down... I really feel for the guy. I mean, Will was begging for him to quit...

I have to say I suspected that because he thought he deserved to get the project, cause it supposedly was "so important" and he has the expertise to make it happen, and didn't, he sabotaged it by putting the wrong buffer in it before he sent it out. I could be wrong, but why was Will begging for him to quit, anyway? I'll appreciate your feedback, jd45

Makes one wonder where Red jacket is going to get a valid FFL license NOW!

I am assuming they were working under Vinces license.

actually if you watch when he received it from kris, out told off the table. obviously he's having issues with his wife's pregnancy, but when he mentioned putting some miles on the Harley, he was going to St. Jude to see his nephew. I suspect there are many underlying issues.

MaYbe that "general" who in profile looked an aweful lot like the producer of the show will apply for an ffl lol

Im sorry but generals dont drive out to a desert to "test" weapons. They send the firearms to test location then read the report when its done. Then congress has to approve any new weapon procurements if im not mistaken.

I have been shooting hogs with my 458 since the great emaculation took place. I have killed over 200 hogs with it and there isnt anything better for brinning home the bacon.
The Son's of Gun's show is put on for a different crowd. The target audiance is city slickers and armchair warriors. The show they did with the 458 didnt give much credit to Marty and now they have reinvented the wheel. All the drama over a weapon that has been in production since the 60's and they put a piston system in it. Wow
Its a good thing that General showed up to see this NEW weapons platform. I bet we will hear them call it an "assualt rifle" instead of an AR. Its good tv but thats it.
