.458 SOCOM

A custom handload for one of the larger calibers available on the AR-15 platform. Along with .450 Bushmaster and .50 Beowulf, the .458 SOCOM is better suited if you reload your own ammo since factory ammo is often scarce and or expensive. The loading data for this batch are as follows by the owner. (GRH)

  • Barnes .458 SOCOM TAC-X Bullets
  • Hodgdon H110 Powder (31.3 grains)
  • Starline Brass
  • CCI 350 Primers

RPK-74M

Long delayed post of my RPK-74M build. Started off as an unissued parts kit which I sent off to be assembled. It is not in the standard configuration of a normal RPK-74M. 

Don’t mind the Magpul AFG; got it today for my Shrike just to see how it feels. Figured I’d see how it fits onto the railed Vepr 12 handguard. I’ll do a proper post on the build details and parts soon. (GRH)

Beowulf

The 50 Beowulf cartridge will fit into most standard AR-15 steel or polymer magazines. However, getting them to feed properly is a different issues. There are Beowulf owners who have reported having to modify their mags, while others have had no issues at all. Alexander Arms sells magazines for their Beowulf rifle but they haven’t been reliable either, with some owners thinking AA is just marking cheap mags with their logo. (GRH)

Ballista Tactical Nautilus Rotating Rail

An interesting handguard option for the AR-15 platform. Some have called it the “Rubix Cube” rail because you basically twist and turn the rail sections and you can move an accessory in place or out of place for different roles. Supposedly it maintains zero even after rotating an optic around. It has been met with harsh criticism by many in the AR community because of its “mall-ninja” appearance and the more viable reason that it can create a front heavy rifle if too many accessories are added.
