With all due respect, the appeal for this hand howitzer is beyond me. A guy at the range had one and he grimaced and groaned with every round launched. Had a bud who had to sell his Desert Eagle .50 or lose the use of his gun hand from recoil damage concussion to his wrist. I can't believe the Smith could be any more forgiving in that respect, I guess whatever floats your boat, but my W296 loads for my .44 Mag are plenty enough punishment for this cat.....unless I'm into hitting myself in the melon with a hammer of course!

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.
I have three of the beasts: a 4", a 5" John Ross Special and a 6 1/2" PC Hunter. Any of them are pretty nasty to shoot with anything approaching full power loads, but all are great fun with somewhat milder loads and are really sweet with the Trailboss type loads. Without handloading, the ammo is so expensive most of us couldn't afford to shoot the things.

The thing that changed my mind about wanting one was shooting a snubby version. I'm kind of a recoil junkie (too) but it was more than I would want to deal with and if I had it..I'd have to shoot it. For the time being anyway I"ll stick with my 44 mag. And it's a longer bbl revo.

They are nice guns though OP. I love Smith wheel guns. I have 5 and want a couple/few more.
