Local source - .458 socom

I have does on order, but I would rather hoard my own brass than buy new. To that end, anyone know where I might be able to source some .458 socom locally (Eastern shore/ Queen Annes Co; I can go to Annapolis too). I travel to Westminster for hunting and actually tried BBP on the way up Friday, but no luck. Bass pro and Dicks were a strike out too)

Not aware of any local (e.g. Annapolis area) locations that stock. It is not a real popular calibre and becoming less so. When I needed some I purchased online from, Buffalo Bore. It's been a few years.

I donít get that, of the three big bore choices it the only option that headspaces on the shoulder and it uses 45-70 bullets instead of pistol bullets....

I can try to make a detour, but with the beltway that is more of a hike than I would like.

Does Cecil County count as Eastern Shore? You might try Benchtop in Port Deposit. I know he sells big bore uppers, but I never really paid much attention. It would probably be worth a call or email:

A while back, I ordered a .458 SOCOM upper and wound up buying a couple of boxes of loaded ammo, and dies.

I also bought several bags of SOCOM virgin brass.

Midway USA is where I got my stuff.

Come to think of it, I've never even put the upper on any of my lowers.

There's nothing quite like standing on the firing line, stuffing your ramrod down a waiting black hole, slathering your balls with grease, and then having as many as eight nipples.

With regard to reloading:

Dealing with stuff that can cause catastrophic failure in your firearms, and injury or death to you and those in close proximity. I treat every step as if my life depends on it.
