    Have fun! I'm satisfied with my 44 Magnum revolvers. That 500 JRH should be a real monster stomper!

    You'll like it, probably my pick of large revolvers. If you don't have any h110/ww296 around you may want to get some. This mold has done me well lubed or powder coated.

    You can make your own brass or buy JRH stamped brass from Jack himself or Buffalo Bore.

    For load data, you can sesrch for the 500 Wyoming express. The case capacity is the same.
    You can load it anyway you want or what your pain threshold will allow.
    I load mine with either a 400 or 440 and use imr4227. Im down at hunting camp so I don't have the load data with me.

    I bought my brass from Jack Huntington, he was very pleasant on the phone and his price for brass wasn't too bad. I did cut down some 500S&W cases and they loaded just the same.
