S&W S&W500 5RD 500S&W 4"
by ken F Date Added: Friday 11 April, 2008
First shot I just pointed at the hillside, cocked for single action and gritted my teeth...not knowing what to
expect. The recoil was heavy, but manageable, but oh the noise!! No one in a mile will miss knowing when you are shooting. Ear protection a must!

Love the gun, although it may be a time before accuracy and 500 S&W will be used together by me.
The revolver is very accuarate, and I can keep shots under 3" at 35 yards AS LONG as I am bracing my arms on a bench rest. The revolver has given me nothing to complain about, and the recoil is not much more than my 480 Ruger Raging Bull (6.5 inch)

I shot a couple boxes of S&W 500 Specials, and with these the gun is a pleasure to shoot..and very accurate.
I shot 400 gr Buffalo full on rounds, and will not do that again without my gloves...but I hit a pop can at 25 yards first shot!

A little heavy to carry, but I am looking to use it for Mtn cat hunting during turkey season this spring and bear/turkey next fall. Can't carry a rifle and shotgun.

All in all, I am very satisfied with this, and believe that with enough practice will be a very accurate side arm.
