Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. That psychic discomfort is the price we pay for basic civic peace. It's worth it. It's a pragmatic principle. Defend everyone else's rights, because if you don't there is no one to defend yours. -- MaxedOutMama

I don't just want gun rights... I want individual liberty, a culture of self-reliance....I want the whole bloody thing. -- Kim du Toit

The most glaring example of the cognitive dissonance on the left is the concept that human beings are inherently good, yet at the same time cannot be trusted with any kind of weapon, unless the magic fairy dust of government authority gets sprinkled upon them.-- Moshe Ben-David

The cult of the left believes that it is engaged in a great apocalyptic battle with corporations and industrialists for the ownership of the unthinking masses. Its acolytes see themselves as the individuals who have been "liberated" to think for themselves. They make choices. You however are just a member of the unthinking masses. You are not really a person, but only respond to the agendas of your corporate overlords. If you eat too much, it's because corporations make you eat. If you kill, it's because corporations encourage you to buy guns. You are not an individual. You are a social problem. -- Sultan Knish

All politics in this country now is just dress rehearsal for civil war. -- Billy Beck

Well, Bummer.

As I have noted previously, I have a Rock River AR upper chambered in .458 SOCOM coming to go with my new York Arms lower.  I have brass, primers, powder, and dies in hand, and a case gauge coming.  What I need are bullets.

The one I want to try most is the Remington .458 405 grain softpoint, but I have been unable to find it at any retailer.  So, I emailed Remington:
Could you inform me as to when Remington will be making a production run of the .458 caliber 405 grain softpoint projectile?  I cannot find this bullet in stock at any retail outlet, and it's the one I am most interested in trying in my .458 SOCOM.  From what I've read, this is a once-a-year product for Remington, and from all appearances not enough were made last year to keep up with demand.
Thank you for your attention.
They responded:
There are no scheduled runs for the bullets alone. We have two runs scheduled for 45-70 loads that have the 405 grain bullet however.
I replied:
Am I to gather from this response that Remington does not intend to produce this projectile as a reloading component in 2012, then?
And the conclusion:
There are non(sic) on the schedule and that is the conclusion that we would come to as well. Our apologies.
Well, damn.

One of the reasons I chose the .458 over the .50 Beowulf was bullet selection. I guess not so much anymore.
