Do you think i should contact the manufacture?
The Cor Bon should be good to go, also keep in mind that SBR also makes 458SOCOM ammo - Tracer Ammunition. I would suggest ordering a case gauge from SBR and checking the Cor Bon ammo. It will also be useful if you decide to reload your own 458 artillery.

It sounds like your chamber may be a hair tight.

Just finished ordering 2 boxes of SBR.
I'm trying to figure 1 type of ammo and sight my scope to it.
If the Cor Bon doesn't fire at all, guess I'll have to use SBR.

Cor-Bon is 405 gr JSP
SBR is 410 gr JSP

Not sure how much of a difference each would make at 100 yds.

GAWD I wish my upper was in working order.

Let's try to put huge .45 cal rounds in my gun that was designed for a .223... "What could go wrong!?" Well... I found out...

There were too many pictures for me to post in this thread as this forum
only allows so many pics per post.

I markered up a round to see where it was sticking:


*** This is what I found ***


The conclusion I come to is SHOCKING!!! actually, probably not.

I still need help with what it's sticking on and deciding on who's to
blame in this sticking mess.
