    That would be great! In the next few weeks (Saturday/Sunday) I'm headed to Grande Rhonde to visit a friend. I will PM you to see if it works out. P.S. he has a small range on his property. Also I'm expecting to pay per round, I know they are expensive.

    I hand load my own so call it about $1 a shot? If you just want a mag dump or to pop a soda or something we can just go out my front door. If you want to shoot a group, I can go hundreds of yards about a quarter mile down the rd. Or your friends place is cool too. Just let me know. Weekends can fill up fast.

    Do they now have a new .375 Socom? Much better down range performance? Also possible to run a skinnier barrel so the gun looks like a standard HB AR15 rifle? That is until they see the cartridge. I love a good plan.

    They do have a 375 out. I don't have one though :(. Tromix does have a light profile 458 barrel that looks like a normal AR. That's the one I have and love it. Rifle weighs barely over 6lbs without sights/scope.

    Recoil comes to mind. You can shoot it. Not me. Yikes! But it would make a fine hog gun. Or Polseen shooter. :)

    IDK if it's the gas system or what but it's not as bad as you might think. I was initially braced for impact but pleasantly surprised.

    Would it work for Elk? Close bush range. Can we imagine how peed off that would make all the Commie Anti Gunners if you took some video of you standing over that dead Bull Elk holding your little AR15 Carbine "Pop Gun" "Poodle Shooter?" Only it ain't!

    Part of the lure of the fun of AR15 ownership. How many different calibers now exist for this enduring platform? A prediction. One thousand, (1,000) years from now on some frontier colony planet the AR15 Carbine chambered in .458 Socom will be needed.

    Tony made a 500 SOCOM as well, but says it will not be a production caliber.

    That thing looks real nice. I still haven’t pulled the trigger on one yet, life happened and the priorities got rearranged, LOL.

    New reply to watched thread.

    My offer still stands. I can't be more than about 30-40 minutes away from you. Make it happen.
