    They were definately playing it up. I have shot one and it kicked no more than the .480 Rugers I have shot. Actually it felt like less because the Super Blackhawks I shot had wood grips.

    They gotta be hamming it. I've have the 460 and honestly the 500 ain't all that much bigger of a cartridge...UNLESS that bigger bullet makes a difference? I've only shot the Hornady 200 gr SST round. 2200 fps.

    I shot the 500 grain Corbon hard cast out of the .500. I know heavier bullets increase felt recoil, but I doubt they do to that extent.

    Yeah, they even have an "Alaskan Model" with a 2 1/2" Brl. Haven't shot that one, but I bet it is a little tough as i dont believe it is ported to the extent that the .500 S&W is.
