I currently own a 4" M500 S&W. I am thinking about a longer barrel version for range shooting and perhaps hunting when I am good at it.
As some of you may recognize from our previous conversations about reloading the 500SW cartridge, I reload all of my cartridges, usually towards the hotter end of the spectrum.
Based on your experiences or readings, which model of the S&W M500 has the best accuracy at 25 yards?
I am itching for the 10.5" hunter version with the Lothar Walther bbl.
The specs says they use a polygonal rifling. Does it mean it is not safe to shoot lead-cast bullets through it, just like the Glock bbl? Some people think that when the velocity of the bullet is high, bare lead may not engrave as well as on polygonal rifling vs conventional rifling; thus, may reduce accuracy.
