While I haven't run any top level loads out of my 500 JRH BFR yet, I have found the recoil to be surprisingly manageable. Substantial but not sharp or hard to control.

Per my calibrated palm recoil-o-meter 440gr bullets @ ~1175fps feel like 2-3x the recoil pulse of a top end 44 mag load but more of a push than a violent jerk. You definitely need to hang on but the bisley grip distributes the recoil very well.

I'm sure that a case full of H110 @ 1400fps will be more attention grabbing the JRH does not need to be run that hot to hit very hard.

No, it doesn?t, but it sure is fun!!!

I had a full build done on a Ruger Super Blackhawk by Jack R. Huntington (creator of the 500 JRH in case there are those who don?t know what JRH stands for.) and absolutely loved it. I will have another one in the near future. Ran it light a few times, but much preferred the full house H110 loads.

Reminds me of a song-

I like, big, booms and I cannot lie...

I heard somebody say once that shooting a gun that doesn't recoil is like sleeping with a woman who just lays there.

I love my .22's and I don't have to chase them around or hang on too tight to keep them from getting away! Or hitting me up side the head when I do something wrong.

I know, but the uncertainty makes them fun! LOL!

Arthritis has lowered my fun meter somewhat to where I have a few calibers that are no damn fun anymore. The 500 would be one of those calibers. 44 specials from my 5 1/2 in flat top at 900+ - make my hands ache for a couple of days afterward. MANS GOT TO KNOW HIS LIMITATIONS! Don't have to like em, just know em.
