I am still waiting on my upper kit to show up but I have been busy getting everything else ready. The lower is assembled and ready. I have some test loads ready to chrono. Now my mind turned to magazines. I have a heap of GI mags so I though if I could get a good follower I should be all set. Other than the single shot followers that many appear to use I could not find on 450 Bushmaster specific follower. I expanded my search to include 458 SOCOM and 50 Beowulf and came across a promising 458 SOCOM follower at http://www.calegalmags.com/458-SOCOM-Ma ... _1397.html. I ordered three of them and they arrived today.

Now if my upper will show up I can test them and let you guys know if they are worth buying. :D

nice looking followers, thanks for the link.

one thing I was doing with my modded mags years ago, was filing a quarter moon shaped notch into the front to match the factory mag. Truthfully don't know if it was needed, just did it.

My kit is supposed to come with a 450BM magazine and I figured when it shows up I would probably use it as a template to put a similar relief on the front of these mags also.

Upper finally showed up yesterday. I had made myself a few dummy rounds with both 230gr FMJ and 240gr XTP and hand feed them from both the factory magazine that came with the gun and my 458 SOCOM follower conversions and they both feed perfectly. Now to get some glass mounted on that rifle so I can shoot it.
