I have never fired a .500 S&W.

Will be an experience.

I wouldn't mind a small 50 cal... Something to buck a great big bullet around a 1000 fps..... Should kill anything im likely to kill. Sounds like a fun gun now if only I can afford one lol I don't want one of the huge x-frames though. Something average size 5 shots punch a half inch hole through 3 deer end to end.... You know something little lmao

Sounds awesome Zee, looking forward to the pics and report. Maybe you could put up a video of the recoil for us too. Don't forget to use a recoil baseline! Ha!

It arrived a week and a half ago, or so. Just been busy.

Turned out beautifully! Except......for one minor flaw.





I ordered the 4 port baffle brake from Harrel Precision and had them ship it straight to MGM for instalation. Called MGM and they confirmed it's arrival. Guess I should have asked what it looked like. Because Harrel shipped them the wrong brake. They sent a radial brake. MGM not knowing any better because it wasn't their fault.........beautifully mounted the wrong brake and sent it to me. I didn't realize the error until I opened the package.



Called Harrel Precision and they were apologetic. Sent me the correct one free of charge. Just have to get it finished and installed.



At least I will get to compare the two brakes as to effectiveness. SCIENCE!!!

Took it to the range and played with some reduced Trail Boss loads.









Gonna wait until I get the other brake finished before I go full bore on the ammo.

It's a right handy firearm.
