    Most of the .452 bullets are made for handguns, while the majority of .458 are rifle bullets, that is one reason why I chose the .458 Socom, because you can use any bullet that the 45/70 uses

    Yeah, they feed the same if you just pull the handle and release. Def easier to chamber than with the LPC doing it that way, but it would be damn loud in a hunting situation. I'd think many people would 'caress' it home rather than pull and release while hunting. And that buffer doesn't help with sticky extraction.

    A 12.5-14" 458 SOCOM barrel would be interesting, and not too muzzle heavy.

    Good point.

    Slug selection is definitely one factor to consider.

    .
    I think larger bolt handle would be a good solution for extraction. Like those Lantac rifles.

    Where do we get those solid stainless gas tube plugs for FSB's to block the gas off? I was going to just make one out of a carbine gas tube and install it upside down, plug the tube with a tight fitting drill bit shank and crimp it to help keep it from collapsing, but heard about these solid pins which sounds much better and safer lol.

    yup.
    the extra 1/2" that the Renegade has over its competition makes a big difference

    With the Renegade, can you remove the weights out of the buffer to lighten the rifle up a bit?

    Can't see why not. It is a manual action and the weight should have nothing to do with the spring assisted bolt return.
