I apolagize if this has been beat to death on here. I tried to search for it in previous posts and the results came up pretty slim. I left AK in 09 when I got orders out of there. I did all my hunting with a .280 Remington. I traded that rifle when I got to Arkansas as I thought I would not be back for a tleast a decade. I found out monday I am getting medically retired in 2 months and my wife and I decided to move back. I have to pay out of pocket to move back and its looking like that will cost me over 10K by the time I get there. I do not have a lot of money to invest in a gun when I get back. I just sold one of my AR-15 rifles and have 800 dollars to spend on a new hunting rifle. I do have a DPMS sweet 16 in .223. Great for deer and predators but not so much for moose and bear. I am toying with the idea of spending that money on a .458 socom upper and hunting all my big game with it. I have not been able to find a lot of load data for the cartridge though. What I have seen said I can push a 350 grain bullet at 1800fps. I see that as being plenty for moose and bear inside 150 yards. Anyone have any info on the topic that can help? Thanks for any info.
