I've been thinking (I know that's dangerous) about getting a .458 SOCOM upper for my Bushy. Anybody familiar with it? I'd like some feedback before I spend the bucks.

I haven't seen the 50 Beowulf. Does it use AR mags like the .458 SOCOM?

Too cool. Would this thing work with a forged Oly lower? Are there subsonic loads available?

Did they indicate what the price might be? The web site skirts the issue...

Here's a shop that has prices listed:

Any reason to prefer one over the other in terms of reliability, parts availability, or ammo availability? They both look quite imposing.

I think you'll have a better selection of bullets with the .458 SOCOM, due to the several current .45 cal rifle cartridges.
