Well, I shot the ladder today and pretty much followed LeHigh's load data--I was kinda of expecting some potential issues due to the shape of the bullets--but everything cycled, fired and ejected flawlessly. It's apparent to me that if you are contemplating a 458 or 375 socom build--Tromix parts are the way to go.

My results were less than spectacular--but it wasn't because of lack of accuracy of the rifle or cartridges. This is a big bore cartridge and a lightweight AR15 is going to be a bit of a sledgehammer when you fire it. If you look at some Youtube videos--you'll notice most of the operators getting good results are pulling in with some force to their shoulder--just as you might with a real big-game rifle. I finally figured out that this is really necessary to get accuracy--but pulling in while trying to keep a steady sight picture is a bit of a challenge for me. Half the groups were similar to this--3 shots fairly close and then a bit of a flier. I'll have to repeat this again as my technique gets better.
