A buddy of mine picked this beauty up yesterday in a trade. He’s not much of a wheel gun guy so he called and offered it to me at a price I couldn’t pass up.

I had a 4” 500 when they first came out. Seemed to be too much of a good thing to me at the time. Now with a good chest holster and modest loading I think it could be a lot of fun, and effective, even though it is not really practical.

Any of you guys do any modest loading for the 500 S&W? Something in the 400gr @ 900-1100fps range. I have a pile of H110 that needs burned up.

I always loaded my 500 w/near max charges.

If I was going to shoot reduced loads (which has a lot of appeal) I don't think H110 would be on my list...

Here's a link to an interesting article by my buddy Gavin, about handloading the "500 Special" - in it he uses both full size 500 brass and shorter 500 Special brass.

Thanks guy, I’ll definitely give that a read. I know h110 isn’t an ideal powder for lighter loads but thought I could use some up with 400-440s at starting loads since I have nearly 20 pounds of it!
