Looks like it's got some weight to it.
Some people think I'm crazy. I felt that my first iteration of the .458 SOCOM was too heavy. So, I rebuilt it with some lighter parts (including a lighter upper receiver and BCG).

When the .475 Tremor came around, I trimmed even more weight. The only upper in the safe that's lighter than the .475 Tremor is the 7.5" 5.56 pistol upper.

In the process I learned that the 458 Socom doesn't like crappy mags/followers!
Lancer AWMs seem to be the go-to.
I received one as a gift, to test. (Bigger bullets with even bigger meplats, in the Tremor, after all.)
Works great, but I may need to half-moon it for manual unloading.

My standard are regular old "GI" mags. Mine are all civilian market, though. D&H, PSA (D&H), and Brownells (also D&H). I prefer the aluminum bodies, as they're easier to half-moon at the front -- primarily to make manually unloading easier, but also to clear some of the huge meplats on .475" bullets.

I thought ASC might be good, but they were a total failure - even for .223/5.56!
P-Mags sometimes work, for some people, but I don't even bother any more. Absolute fluster cluck in my testing with several lowers and both big bore uppers.
