That reminds me of more evidence to my idea that Smith & Wesson really did a heckuva job in taming these beasts...be it the frame design, the grip design or (I'm guessing) the extremely well designed porting.
I put 5 rounds of factory .500 S&W Mag through a T/C Encore Pro-Hunter rifle with the Katahdin .500 Magnum barrel and it was an awful experience. Not fun, not enjoyable, not something I'd look forward to doing again. (but I would, just because...) I could certainly see hunting with it, but dialing it in would be an awful experience.
But the revolver is a much, much nicer experience.
Attention Brass rats and other reloaders: I really need .327 Federal Magnum brass, no lot size too small. Tell me what caliber you need and I'll see what I have to swap. PM me and we'll discuss.
