Very nice, is that walnut? I like making grips but I just don't have the time anymore so I'm going to start using custom grip makers and offer it as an option over the Hogues.

Thanks, Rod! It is time consuming. It is California-English walnut.

Thanks, guys! That is my .500 Maximum, built on a Ruger Max I bought a couple of years ago.

I'm waiting to see if you tattoo your forehead before I decide if I want to build myself one. Because of the lighter weight I bet it ranks right up there with the 50AK.

Nah, they're not that bad until you start loading "proof-type" loads. It's only about a half-pound lighter than my Alaskan and I will be pushing the same bullet about 250 fps slower. Brisk, but controllable! LOL! Shot a buddy's not too long ago with nearly the same configuration and the same loads, and it will get your attention but it's nothing like the .50 AK.


And it didn't get my forehead, it got my scalp -- LOL!

tattoo your forehead... hahaha now that is funny! Whit or Rod, is the 500 max about the same O.A.L. as a 500 Smith?

Don't laugh, I got cracked in the skull once by my .50 Alaskan! It is a brute! LOL!


Yes, they are both 1.6-inch cases and the Maximum is the cartridge the .500 Smith was based on, but running much higher pressures (almost 62,000 psi SAAMI spec).
