Prompted by the lack of power offered by the 5.56 NATO cartridge used in the M4 carbine and the M16 rifle, the .458 SOCOM came about from informal discussion of members of the special operations command, specifically Task Force Ranger’s experience that multiple shots were required to neutralize members of the opposing force in Mogadishu during Operation Gothic Serpent. The reason being many Somalis would chew the drug Khat all day and the effects of the drug would both curb their appetite (a country plagued by famine) and allow them not to feel pain. Marty ter Weeme of Teppo Jutsu designed the cartridge in 2000 and Tony Rumore of Tromix was contracted to build the first .458 SOCOM rifle in February 2001. SOCOM is the acronym for the Special Operations Command.
