Actually hand loaded if you do that, the 500 s&w is a good choice, yes inknow tooo much gun but if you load it down to 300 grain bullet run it at 1400 to 1500 fps recoil in the big revolver is less than a hot 44 mag and very accurate I have taken hogs bobcat squirrel and deer ya the squirrel is a little messy ( head shot), but versital. My fav hand gun to carry when hunting that's my 2 cents worth.

For a long time I have loved big bore rifles and handguns. Probably the wildest rifles I've owned was a Ruger #1 in .458 Win. mag and a .338 Win. mag model 70, the 458 recoil would lift my left foot off the ground and the 338 used to slap the heck out of my check. There was a time I thought owning a .50 Sharps would be cool. Over the years I've owned a number of Ruger Blackhawks in .45 Long Colt, a few Super Blackhawks and for many years my all time favorite Redhawk 7 1/2" 44 mag. I thought if the money and opertunity came about I'd get a Desert Eagle .50, Then I came to get some common sense and realized that for my physical size, 5' 11" and 165 lbs., I was at the upper end of carrying a large weapon with the Redhawk. Also a big factor in shooting big caliber weapons is the cost of ammo and availability. It all narrowed down to calibers that had ammo readily available and reasonably priced. I handload for most of my firearms so that helps reduce costs, if it weren't for that I couldn't afford to shoot the Redhawk all that often and so I figured .454, .480, 500 S&W and etc. would really be out of the ballpark for me. Just my 2 cents worth, after all it's all up to what you can afford and are able to handle.

While my hunting experience with it is very limited,I have a 1980 - 500 series Redhawk. Over the 30 years I have used it I have never failed to be impressed every time I pick it up.
The Redhawk never misses, the man behind it is not any better than he needs to be but the gun has been flawless.
A sign of my age perhaps but I do not care for scopes on handguns,If you
need a scope you may as well take a light rifle.

I did mention at one time that because of changes in my eyesite a scope might be helpful on a Redhawk but as an afterthought my Redhawk is already heavy enough. What would probably help me just as well would be to install fiber optic sites.
