Here is a pic of my S&W 500. I purchased this about 14 months ago and have only taken it to the range 3 times. Handloads are 440gr SWC doing an average 1650fps over the Chrono. Also put a video in below.

I genuinely admire anyone that shoots the Big Dogs.

Anything over .357 mag or .45 ACP is more gun than I want to shoot (and I've tried with .44 Mag, .445 SuperMag, and 10 mm)

I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman "Were is the Self Help Section?" She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.

I have a Magnum Research 7.5 inch 454 and it's a baby compared to this thing.

2075 fps and 300gr bullet?  worship

That's 2865 ft-lbs of energy per shot. (not sure what real speed JM is getting out of the shorter barrel though).

Five shots in 1.4 secs = 18.6 HP

That's a nice lawn tractor motor if he can keep it up LOL!

Interesting, when he changed his grip, he went thumbs forward, right thumb on top of right index.

 

Hey Aussie-DW you shoot that thing just fine!

 If you're going to drink, don't drive. Don't even putt.
