Underwood Ammunition Loading Lehigh Defense .458 SOCOM


Underwood Ammunition is loading Lehigh Defense bullets in its .458 SOCOM ammunition. The company is offering loads with both the Controlled Fracturing and the Xtreme Penetrator bullets.

The first load uses a 300 grain Controlled Fracturing bullet. The load is rated at 1,840 fps and 2,255 ft-lbs of energy. The second load uses a 300 grain Xtreme Penetrator bullet and is also rated at 1,840 fps for 2,255 ft-lbs of energy.

The Controlled Fracturing round retails for $67.99 per box/20. The Xtreme Penetrator is listed at $59.99/box.

Iraqveteran8888 published a video earlier this month showing the two rounds out on the range. The crew used ballistic gel, soda bottles and more to test the ammo. Take a look below:

  • Crazy. When I saw the image they looked like crimp-nosed blanks to me.

      That’s the same thing I thought when I saw them. I admit that it would take a perfect storm of bad luck & ignorance for someone to mistakenly use these thinking that they’re a blank, but let’s face it, there are people out there who can screw up a two-car funeral.

      I thought I was looking at new 7.62×25 rounds, with no size reference they have a very similar profile.
