.458 Socom Full-Auto – Expensive & Awesome

While I have never shot the .458, I find it alluring as a big-bore cartridge. Quickly gaining a following within the MSR market, the cartridge balances a wide range of capabilities and bullet weights to create a versatile package.Unfortunately, this growth in popularity has stretched its manufacturing base, with many loadings and parts difficult to find.

This makes GY6’s video either a treat or a horror, depending on your desire to shoot the ammo. Andrew goes full-auto with the big-bore and enjoys it. Slotted for destruction include pumpkins, meat, and includes a ballistics gel hit.

    Why on Earth, would you need a Fully-Automatic .458 Socom (11.63x40). If you can't HIT the Target at 200-meters in ONE-round. What would FOURTEEN-rounds, plus ONE At Full Auto Accomplish
