    Default 458 Socom

    Hi all.It has been quite a while since I was last active here on Gunsite,life sometimes gets in the way.I recently was able to take my 458 Socom to the bushveld.It is a Wilson Combat rifle which was modded to single shot for hunting purposes.
    I have a MARCH 1-10X24 scope on the rifle,which due to it's small size and wonderful glass,really compliments the small and lightweight Wilson.Bullets used at the moment are custom made 300gr by Johan Kriek.
    I managed to kill two animals with this rifle,both hunted on foot.
    First to go was a warthog which was dispatched with a frontal headshot at 60m.The shot was a little low,however the pig died on the spot.Bullet was not recovered.
    A little later that same morning I finally managed to get a shot on an eland cow.Distance was 115m.Slightly quatering on,the bullet entered in the left front shoulder and exited on the opposite side rib cage.She managed to go about 45 meters before expiring.
    This little rifle is so comfortable to carry on any length walk and stalk and in my humble opinion is just about perfect for close up bushveld hunts.
