With big bore comes big responsibility

As you can see, it’s quite a bit different than my other rifle calibers… (left to right) .458 Socom, 6.5 Grendel, .300 Blackout, and standard .223/5.56 cartridges.

The .458 Socom is big, tough, and a fun rifle to shoot. It will put a smile on your face the moment you pull the trigger.

The only problem is that the round it is not readily available here in gun fearing California, and since we’ve lost our right to purchase ammunition online, I had to turn to reloading the shells myself to make this beast more affordable to shoot.

Range day

I finally got out to the big boy range to sight in the new red dot. I had it pretty well dialed in using my home range, but with a few more clicks its also performing better at greater distances.

Put about 140 rounds through the little cannon, 10 rounds at a time thanks to California’s ridiculous restrictions. I’m quickly becoming the stripper clip master and loading these things back up in a flash.

The more I shoot this magical FDE goddess, the more I want to shoot.
