Cool, I'm not sure what caliber upper I want yet or even if I really need one right now but I was just wondering for later reference, Thanx.

The .458 SOCOM is another round that you can fire in an AR by only switching the complete upper. It even uses the standard mags. The only difference is that a 30 round mag only holds roughly 10 or so .458's. The article that I read the other day said that the .458 is a lot easier to get rounds for than the .50 Beowulf.

I've heard a little about the .458 Socom, I've heard it has a lot of power. How much would an upper chambered in this round run me?
