I just loaded up a few .500 S&W's with a charge of 10gr. Unique under a 335gr plated bullet. Clocked them at 700fps over a PACT chrono. Very mild. Still, they ought to knock some pins over. I might up it to 12 grains for a defensive load. Anyone else have a pet "powder puff" load for the .500?

I just shot some winchester reduced recoil factory loads. 1400fps (give or take a couple feet) and wow. what a difference. I fired 5 rounds of that ammo and it felt like a full load .44mag or maybe a 454. Even the sound was very much reduced.

Then I fired 5 rounds of full load Hornady 350gr Flex tip. The first one went off and actually caught me off guard. HAHA.
