(Yes, I searched the forum first ...before posting)
Has anyone done a side-by-side comparison of a Ruger SRH in .500 S&W versus a Ruger SRH in .480 Ruger? I'm a firm believer in carrying as much gun as you can handle properly (backup bear protection ...backup to the shotgun w/1-ounce slugs that is.) I find that shooting my 7-1/2" SRH in .480 Ruger (with the 'Alaskan' Hogue grips) to be easy ...and have put 150 rounds of Hornady's best through it in a sitting with no problems (no sore hand, no serious fatigue, no serious recoil control issues.) Now I'm wondering if I should move up to a 500...
Or better yet, if someone in the Fairbanks area would like to DO the comparison and you own a .500 SRH, then PM me and we can get together at the rifle/pistol range and give'r a go. Let me know.
