Nice piece,,, those .500's are fun to shoot,, but limited shooting with full house factory loads for me,, good way to develop a flinch. I have a FA Model 83 in .500 Wyoming Express,, not quite as hot as the S&W, but all one would ever need most likely. Reloaded down, it is very pleasant compared to the Grizzly factory loads and the loads using Trail Boss powder, far more economical as well. Like Mr. Keith said,, " Bring enough gun " one never knows when an occasional T- Rex may show up in the back forty. Have fun and again, a very nice piece, congrats.
