    Thanks so much for the info. That is a new website and asset. Appreciate the effort. Will be loading up for deer in Indiana. I also have a .44mag which I will use but like to try the 500. A bit heavy but needs to be used.

    I don't know what the muzzle velocity of the 500 S&W load from NCsmitty's site (above) is but H110 is mainly for max load cartridge performance. This may not be very compatible with lead bullets. I know I can't shoot them in my Ruger Super Redhawk without a lot of leading, and you aren't supposed to download H110. Does the Missouri Bullet Co bullet have a gas check on it?

    I don't think Missouri Bullets is in the gas check bullet business.

    In my 500 Handi-Rifle I use gas check bullets from Montana Bullet Works.

    No leading whatsoever. MBW recommended I use .500" bullets instead of .501" for the Handi-Rifle.

    I use the same data for rifle as listed for pistol. Awesome round coming out of a 22" barrel.:eek:
