Default .500 S&W Handi Rifle

Anyone else have one of these? I have only put 5 rounds through it but boy do I like this thing. I am hoping to take it pig hunting this year.

Don't own one, but have shot a friends. Bullets are pricey! I always wanted that calibre in a pistol as a conversation piece.

Cool. Whats the maximum effective range for a standard factory load?

Don't really know. Probably not all that far. I plan on using it for pig hunting. So hopefully between 30-60 yards. I need to get out and shoot it more but I have to finance rounds for it they are so expensive.

I think they should be good for right around a 100 yds. They say they are essentially the same performance of a 12 gauge slug..........
That`s a cool rifle, I have a bunch of Handi-rifles but no .500 S&W Mag.
