Well the new upper made it to the house the Monday before Christmas. Spent a little time at the range with a bit of factory ammo. Now I am starting the experimentation to figure out what the Beast likes to eat!!!!

Radical Firearms 458 SOCOM upper, on my Windham lower. Went with a Redfield 3-9x42 Battlezone scope and DNZ Beast rings. If you have a high recoil application take a look at the Beast Rings. There are 12 screws at the rings and where the rings attach to the rail you have 6 points of contact. 4 cross bolts then there are a set of vertical pins in the middle between the cross bolts.

There are a mess of powders that work for this platform and I happen to have a bunch of them already. Started working with H4198, Lil Gun, IMR4227, H110, Accurate 5744, and I think I did some with W296 too.
Using 300gr Lead gas checked ( got a killer deal on em $0.16 a pop). Got some 405 and 300 grain jacketed too.

Now all I need is a couple of days when the temps aren't so bad that I can't keep from shaking so much.

WOW! Nice build. Not being much of an AR guy I had never heard of 458 SOCOM. I looked the round on Wikipedia and it is a heck of a cool round. I just got my first AR lower the other day so I will be building my first sometime soon.
