From what I've heard, there "used" to be a forum for the .458 SOCOM, but apparently it is extinct. Is there any website that shows a plethora of reload data for the SOCOM without having to put individual "bullet specific" posts on this arfcom Variants site?

This site is the best for load info. Use the search feature for 458 SOCOM.

The real 458 site will be rejuvenated at some point.

Until Marty's IT people get the 458 SOCOM forum back up it's search this forum and the reloading forum.

http://www.ar15.com/forums/forum.html?b=6&f=42

and since you're a team member don't forget to search the archived reloading forum
http://www.ar15.com/archive/archive.html

TIP: using "458" as the keyword will bring up more hits than "458 SOCOM"

That's what I was afraid of... you've got to search the archives on a specific bullet and then ready through dozens of posts. No body has compiled a list of bullets and loads like Alexander Arms website has for the Beowulf?

I have a bunch of load data, but I don't "think" I have access to it at my office PC. I know I have it on my Mac at my house, and my other PC...

Or you could send an EMail and get several spreadsheets for several bullets plus a "compilation" of load data that has been published in national magazines. One very large bullet company has their pressure barrel and is working on adding it to their manual...

Gee, I wonder which company that would be?? What bullet company has made two bullets specifically for the .458 SOCOM? I wonder who that could be; it is such a mystery! Another reason to wait for #5 to come out.

Unless they are spending a ton on research with multiple powder options for their multiple bullet options...

I'd rather pay to piss on the book than buy it.

This is a technically appropriate answer to Barnes Reloading Manuals 1-4.
