Snowwolfe said:I own a 8 3/8, 6 1/2 (PC Model) and a 4 in. If i shot them blindfolded I could not tell one from the other as far as recoil goes. My 329 44 mag outkicked them all (I sold it). The Ruger SRH in 454 casull also kicked more than any of the 500 S&W's. Thats why it was sold as well. I have never shot a 460 but most of the people who I know whose opinions I trust claim the recoil on it is noticably less than the 500's.
