Default 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.

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.

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