I just bought two of these beasts and am waiting for them to be delivers. One's the 8 incher and the other is the 4 inch. Both have compensators.

I bought a few boxes of Hornady's red tip rounds and am wondering from owners what they think about theirs. Recoil, fun to shoot, accuracy or anything else you can fill me in.

I will scope the big one and carry the 4 incher while hunting Elk as my bear, alien, big footm monster go to gun.

Thanks

I want to stand out at the range and blow the ceiling off and cause trigger flinches with fellow shooters.

That's exactly what you'll do. I've seen guys at the range shoot the rentals and it is too extreme for me. I hope you fired one before you ordered yours. It is a hand cannon. Good luck sighting it in...ouch! :eek:

Might be fun to reload her down a bit to enjoyable shooting. I always wanted a .50 cal in ball powder.

Fired one last week. My model 57 has more felt recoil. That 5 inch compensator really works.

Too heavy and big for my taste.
