Maybe it's been covered but I missed it. What with RRA picking up the 458 SOCOM, will there be any greater availability/spread of factory loaded ammunition available from commercial sources other than CorBon? What about brass availability?

I love my SOCOM (I have 2) and everything except 40 rounds have been handloads (just retired my second lot of 500 cases, 10 loads per case). Thanks Marty!

I think I read a post by Marty that said there were two companies that were looking into adding it to their line up

Patience my friends. There are SEVERAL developments on going that will capture your interest. Using early February (SHOT Show) as a starting point, add about 4 weeks for discussion and formal agreements to be reached, and an average of 12 - 16 weeks for new developments to reach prototype or initial release stages, I would think that June/July would be an interesting period....

But that is just speculation and conjecture on my part ...
