Got mine last friday...took it out sat. for some break in time.

Heading back the range in 15 minutes or so. Will do some more break in on it.

So far its done well. Had some fte's (2)when my friend was shooting it. Had a BEAR of a time getting it to strip the first round off a full mag the very first time.

All in all its ran rather well IMHO.

They are a little rough but nothing to worry about in a properly lubricated firearm.

I liked the ballistics of the 6.8. Plus I have a .270 win so i could double purpose my bullets while reloading. 6.8 = .277

Just got back from shooting. It shot like a dream aside from a couple fte's.

Keep in mind. 458 SOCOM is only a 150-200 yard caliber. I would seriously consider an AR-10 for hunting.... A 308 is plenty big, it's cheap, and it's everywhere.

well that makes 2 that dont like to eject.

I am hoping this issue gets better after a break in period and thorough douching.

Nevermind I see from your pics your using a alum mag. Guarantee thats what is giving you issues , go buy a $14 Pmag and your problems will be gone . I wont buy Alum mags anymore unless the Pawn shop has well used ones , thats where the local PD sells them when they get new ones , that way I know they work when their well used . They always have some that look like new and I stay away from them #1 they probably had a problem and tossed them in a box to unload and I dont need anyone elses problems For the most part I would rather use the PMags, I have alot of them and I have had no isses with any of them

After about fifty rounds it quit. All the mags i have except one are used. But like i said it cleared up. As for the 308 comment, i dont need more than 150 yards for range when im up in the mountains
