Blasting a crater through body armor with .458 SOCOM (VIDEO)

Matt down on DemolitionRanch makes the magic happen with a CMMG Anvil and a stack of various exotic .458 rounds.

The big ole’ fat SOCOM round, derived from the .50 AE pistol cartridge, is heavy and slow, delivering a brutal amount of energy into a target– but how does Level III+ armor rated for .308 stand up to it when piled on deep?

“Trying to contain the .458 is like trying to contain a bull with a baby gate,” says Matt. “It’s just not gonna happen.”
