    Would .458 Socom be considered offbeat?

    except for now a days with shortages at most shops... if it isn’t normally on the shelf it’s off beat

    My 8x56R, 7.62x38R, and 9.3x57 are all pretty off beat. None of them hold a candle to 10.4x38R known more commonly as 41 Swiss. It's a heck of a process to make the brass out of 8mm Lebel, the rifle has to be converted from rimfire to centerfire, and did I mention it's a black powder cartridge?

    If you don't reload, the round is a no go. I think some place was making it a few years back, but IIRC, it was over $100 for a box of 20. I don't remember if it was rimfire or centerfire. You can buy centerfire brass for about $2 a piece.

    I shoot a good bit of 22 short now, because it's quieter than my .177 pellet rifle and hits a lot harder.

    Love shooting .303, probably the most oddball I shoot. I own currently a sporterized No 4 Mk 1 and an (almost) all original No 5 mk 1 Jungle Carbine.

    .450 Bushmaster, not exactly available on the shelves these days and there has never been much variety of flavors for it either. Which is why I sold my .50AE, with which funds I purchased the 450. I still really like it though.
