    I hate being the one to bring this up but are you sure you want to take on Texas hogs with a 500S&W?

    I've dropped hogs with everything from 22-250, 308, 30-06, 300 WSM, and 45-70. 500S&W will take a bit of the starch out of 'em.

    Congrats on both MBA and the rifle. Thank you for your service. Good luck with your hunt and have fun. The only comment I have is, man that thing must have some serious recoil look how far forward it's slide the scope!! Lol. Be safe.

    Back from Texas, where the kill count was me: 7, the wife got 3. The 50 drops'em dead, had one that went about 10 yards before dying. Snuck up on one while it was sleeping, shot it, bullet passed through the hog and blew the top of the nose off the hog hiding behind him, so we had to do some tracking and put that one down too.

    Well that is just outstanding!

    I've liked those Big Horn Armory 500's since they were introduced. Have had a 500 S&W revolver since 2003 when they first came out, and enjoy the heck out of handloading for it and shooting it. I've never hunted with it though, just a range toy for me. Have often thought that in a rifle, like yours, it would be terrific!

    Congrats on the hunt, the rifle, and your MBA.

    Regards, Guy

    Yeah, what he said, you need to take advantage of the 24" barrel to appreciate better balance and recoil taming. LOL and another 2 lbs.

    That's better than what I got from mine. She shot me in the arm with her 17 HMR.
