    Default 458 Socom Shooters?

    After loading and shooting some full bore loads for the 45/70 I was looking at max loads for my 458 Socom. For the 405gr jacketed bullet, it was exactly the same as the max load for 45/70. 48gr of IMR3031 in either one. I think this almost = same velocity, except my guide gun is only 18" barrel. Recoil from 458 Socom is much less. Anyone else loading this caliber? Makes me want to get rid of 45/70 if I can get same ballistics from semiauto.

    I am loading this one and the reasons you outlined in the 45-70 qualities is why I went with the 458 Socom. I have not shot it yet as I am recovering from shoulder surgery (unrelated to this or any other caliber) still and will give it a go in the next 2 weeks along with chrony set up to verify the loads.

    Cheers,

    Matt

    Interesting! Is the diameter the same so the hardcast can be loaded in the Socom?

    They shoot exactly the same bullets.
