recoil

Quote:
I too was surprised at the recoil of the big Smith. I had heard such horror stories about how wicked it is. Still not something I'd want to shoot with 50 full loads in one day .
Very interesting. I don't have a .500 revolver. I shoot the big slugs from a T/C Encore with a 15" barrel. Recoil is thoroughly unpleasant from shot one onward. Normally, heavy recoil does not bother me but that bullet out of that gun is no fun at all.
