Buffalo Bore 458 SOCOM is the load I’d use if I wanted a jacketed bullet load for use on North Americas’ biggest game animals. Here’s why. The 350gr. JFN bullet is stiff. The tough construction would allow this bullet to be fired at 458 Win. mag. velocities (2500+ fps) and not come apart on impact with big bones. So the 1700 fps muzzle velocity of 458 SOCOM ammo is not enough velocity to mushroom this bullet upon impact with big bones, this means it penetrates deeply. This bullet has been shot into countless 2,000+ lb. buffalo and large coastal grizzlies. It always penetrates on through, despite the angle of the animal. So, at 1700 fps, it will penetrate several feet (probably 5 feet) through living muscle and bone. This is enough penetration to kill the biggest AK/Yukon moose, bison or grizzly. Never mind it is hyper accurate when loaded into 458 SOCOM ammo. This load gives the high muzzle velocity of a lighter bullet, with the penetration of a heavier bullet, because of its construction.
