    So the SOCOM uses a rifle bullet, same as a 458 win mag or 45-70? And the Beowulf uses a .45 ACP bullets? Is that correct?

    I would think that subsonic rounds should be easy to load in this, is that correct or is there too much case capacity to easily load subs.

    What weight bullet would you shoot?

    What's the thread size or mounting options on the Silencerco Hybrid? That would be nice to have a can that you could use on a 1911 and an AR. That would give me an excuse for another can! "But, baby, I can use it on two different guns, so it's like half price per gun, if you look at it that way, and if I bought a third gun, it's like 1/3 price. Now, that's a screaming good deal for a can!!!"

    Sorry, I am very new to the idea of a big bore AR. I have never gone over 6.5 or .30 cal in an AR. But, I am very intrigued. I have been having a ball with 240 grain subs in my 300 BLK, but this is a totally new idea to me!

    The Beowolf is a 50 so the same bullets as .500 S&W and 50 AE, the 450 Bushmaster use .451 dia bullet such as 45 ACP, 45 Long, etc.
    ...what difference at this point does it make?

    Making some progress!



    I already know I'm going to use a BCM GUNFIGHTER stock and a Hogue grip with beavertail and finger grooves. The sights/optics are a little undetermined right now but I have an MRO I'll probably stick on it for the time being.

    I still need to buy some ammo and determine what mags I'm going to use. :/
