Dude relax it's your gun what others think doesn't matter build your gun the way you want. I'm also a recoil junkie I'd love a 4 inch smith .500 a good friend of.mine has one that I cast a 465gr bullet for and with a max load of h110 we got 1275fps and the bullets played follow the leader very nicely and I giggle every time he let's me pull the trigger. The .480 is the biggest I have for now

"250 pounds of recoil" If this is in fact the true recoil figure, I'd be worried. Seriously worried, and I am not kidding. Best of luck.

I've fired a 440gr gas check lead at 800 fps, and that is not brutal, but is getting my attention with the snubnose. You can shoot 630 grainers if you want, but even at 600-700fps, you are going to pay.

I say crank it up. As long as your within safe limits of the gun than whats the worst that could happen? Bruised palm? I dont know how any of these people smack themselves in the head with a handgun. Scope eye with a weatherby or h&h mag is much more of a concern. If the load is to much to handle comfortably you can always take your skirt off, hang it in the closet and back the load down until its comfortable.

nanewt02, I'm glad you posted those recoil figures. Now, when I get lazy exercising, I'll think about those recoil numbers and know that I've got to get back to business!

It's been a few years since I took dynamics, but I do remember that there's a difference in force (measured in lbs) and mass (measured in lbs for every-day use, but usually measured in "slugs" for the purposes of physics). A force of 250lbs would not feel like a 250 weight pushing against you.
This is one of the reasons that the metric system is so vastly superior the the English-standard system. Newtons and kilograms are less ambiguous.

The English standard Gravity constant is 32.2ft/s^2, so a mass of 250lbs yields a force of ~8000lbs. Therefor, working backwards, a force of 250lbs, would yield a mass of less than 10lbs. So it's not as if you'd have anything approaching 250lbs of mass coming back into your shoulder. Again, the English standard system is really really dumb.
The average person can punch with ~600-900lbs of force, so a rifle recoiling with 250lbs of force is definitely going to sting, but it's not at all as strong as it seems, and is well within the realm of possibility.
(you've just been fizziksed)


As far as the revolver goes, do whatever floats your boat. Polished SS and ivory(or synthetic) is a nice looking combination. Worst case scenario you have a fantastic barbeque gun, and can throw on the rubber grips for the range.
Post pictures when you're done.

According to my math it will be more recoil than the 577 trex, but you're probably right, although posting all the physics at such an early hour makes my brain hurt btw, what do You mean by a barbecue gun, are you saying that I can cook food with the muzzle flash
Anyway, nothing is more frustrating when you order a product from a website where it's out of stock and doesn't say so, and they have no idea when it will be back in, so I found better grips elsewhere, at have the price! Those other people had better give me my money back

Also daymen, the target weight of the rifle is ten pounds if that helps any, I need to start using the metric system

BBQ gun: a fancy "dress up" conversation piece gun, appropriate to going to barbeques.
In you're case though, you probably could cook over the flash.

It would be more complicated than I care to do to figure out the exact perceived "weight" coming back into your shoulder. I was just pointing out - to all the people that seemed to think it was insanely high - that 250lbs of force does not equate to 250lbs of weight.
I imagine, like most big rifles, you'll feel a definite kick. But it's not as if you're going to be dropkicked in the shoulder by a 250lb man.

I think with the level of recoil energy we are talking about, with a double action hanging it isn't outside the realm of possibility that you could shoot yourself or a bystander in the face.

I hate these videos but watch the fourth girl shooting carefully.

Out of control recoil can cause accidental discharge. Plus it's no fun to hurt yourself unless you are a true masochist. If that's the case you should stick to whips etc because you have no business with firearms.

Read, people!. I mentioned another build on this thread, the big recoil is from a rifle I mentioned earlier. The 500 magnum recoil is just well, 500 magnum recoil

S&W 500 magnum grip

Why are you talking about big rifle recoil on this thread? Not that it is wrong to wander from your or others subject a bit, that's normal. But don't be a snot about it if you wander off topic and folks assume you are talking about the original subject.

I need to work on how I type things I guess, sorry, nothing bad intended. I really don't know how the rifle recoil got started, anyway, the grips Finally shipped from a much more professional company , people may not like these grips on this gun, but ivory and stainless will sure look nice I think

I also like the look of stainless and ivory (even if it isn't real ivory). Post a pic when you get the new grips on.

It may hurt to shoot but I gotta admit that it looks pretty darn good.

Thank you, my main concern is the grip shattering. It jiggles a tad so I'm filling the bottom pin hole with wood putty and putting it back together, so, we shall see. Any other ideas

If you really want to save the grips, get some acraglas and bed the grip holes and around the frame generously, as per instructions that come with it. Stress can be delivered anywhere around the frame and even the two pins can crack the grips on the inside.
