Lets hear it.
If you were to get a truly massive big bore upper, would you go with the .458 socom or the .50 beowulf?

if i was going to get a truly massive big bore AR15 type i would look into the feasibility of the 458LOTT :)

but seriously i went with the 458socom.

Whats the difference between the lott and socom? And what all do you use the round for?

BenLuby 04-25-2012 10:08 PM

I'd go for the SOCOM.

Diiference between a LOTT and a socom is 800fps and 2000FT LB of energy. Kinda like comparing a 22mag to a 5.56 or a 308 to a 300 win mag. The Lott is a dangerous game round for bolt rifles. Like killing africas baddest of the bad. hehe.

Holy crap. Thats quite a difference indeed. I reckon itd be good enough for bear.

i'd go with the ferret 50bmg upper...but using a scrawny ar lower to hold it all together might be a dumb idea:o

Alwayscarrying 04-25-2012 11:09 PM

I might have to look into the bmg upper anyway. Any idea how much they run?

m72law 04-25-2012 11:33 PM

last time i checked out the ferret 50's they were 1300bucks....i dont know if they are in business anymore?

Alwayscarrying 04-25-2012 11:46 PM

1300 isnt to bad if theyre still in business. Might have to look for that now.
