Here is me trying out a friends S&W 500. I had to try it single handed!
The 500 compared to a 7 1/2" Super Redhawk:
Didn't kick as bad as Ive seen in videos and read about. We shot a lighter load at 330gr RNFP at 1350 fps. He had a few 400ish hollow point 1900 FPS rounds and they kicked a bit harder though.
