I just went with through the same thing, I ended up getting a S&W 500 just for the ease of getting brass and ammo.

I have to say if you want a 500, go with the Magnum!

$1000 bucks--your're there

Good looks--got it. (well maybe?) haha

Packability--somewhat. lol

Accurate--Very!!..unless you got both eyes shut and your head out of the way.(which isn't a bad idea!!). lol

Loud--DEAFinitely

Impressive to shoot--seriously??

Power--Penty!!
It's a little ridiculous actually..hahaha

She shoots a 300gr ftx at over 1900fps and a 440wfn at 1480, with a 3" inch tube!! If you run Berry's 350's you can even afford to shoot it. If you go with the 8 3/8" barrel she'll push the 450cast to over 1800fps!

When the 50 bug bites, I don't know if going with the "special" really quenches that thirst!...with wood grips this beast sure will!! hahaha

500JRH was my choice, and I don't regret it one bit. With that, and a 45 Colt, what more does a man need???!!!

.50 Special? At 50,000 psi, there is nothing subdued about the .500 JRH. The .500 Smith was an answer to a question nobody asked. Too much blast, noise, and heft, for little gain over the shorter .50 Caliber cartridges. That is why I am not a fan, and frankly I prefer single-actions to double-actions, and the 1.6-inch .500 S&W doesn't fit in a normal-sized SA frame, and if you have to go with the Maximum frame, might as well chamber it in the .500 Smith & Wesson's daddy, the .500 Maximum. No Wes, you can keep that snub-nosed X-frame!


And the BFR can be had for about the same price-point.

Just for inspiration:

.500 JRH BFR (my first one):



My latest .500 JRH BFR:




One of my custom .500 JRHs -- compact, lightweight, packable, and a lot easier to look at then an X-frame.




And if you absolutely gotta go with the longer case, there is no substitute for this, the .500 Maximum. Hit's like the hammer of Thor - on both ends.
