    It sure is a fun round to shoot. Though it doesn't get shot much as I would rather shoot my 556 more for the same cost.

    Unless you want to hunt with the round, I wouldn't bother looking at the 458. Its expensive to buy factory ammo, even reloading the bullet alone is about the same cost as a factory 556 round. If you are going to shoot it in any large quantity you really need to load your own.

    If anyone is interested, this doesn't look like too bad of a price.

    Not a dig against you, but I'm hard pressed to recommend anything "budget" when it comes to anything big bore. Getting them built correctly takes different knowledge than a 556 and I've seen silly things come from budget big bore builds before; both online and in person.

    Here's a 458 BCA barrel that came into my local shop for example. They've taken too much material off of the bottom lug and then they didn't even bother to de-burr it so it was gouging brass.

    No offense taken, just posting something I ran across. The only big bore I have had was an Alexander arms .50 Beowulf, which functioned great. I got rid of it because it didn't fit in with my needs. Now I'm in the market for a hunting caliber AR. My 6.5G is in the shop getting a make over because of poor workmanship. I understand the issues of not going tier 1.
