This 458 SOCOM load consists of a 300-grain JHP which accelerates to 1,866 FPS from 16″ barrels. Accuracy from our test upper averages 1.6″ groups @ 100 yards from bags. Exceptional terminal performance is achieved at this velocity. This round’s jacketed hollow point passes through two layers of leather and 26″ of standard FBI density ballistic gelatin. Results from the field show that this projectile performs well on Whitetail at velocities as low as 1,200 FPS.
This is our most popular 458 SOCOM load as it offers accuracy, power, and terminal performance- all at a very competitive price. This is actually the load that allowed Steinel Ammunition Co. to expand from our founder’s basement into our current facility. While 458 SOCOM is not currently a SAAMI adopted cartridge, it continues to grow in popularity year after year.
