I recently inherited a 500 S&W - 8.5 inch barrel and am just not real familiar with the cartridge any help would be greatly appreciated
I am reaching out to see if anyone that has a 500 S&W mag revolver and are using the Rim Rock 330gr LRNFP, I am struggling to find some load data to use this bullet weight.. I would like to keep them in the 1100 to 1300 fps range as the Brinell Hardness of that bullet is 15. Lastly is it absolutely necessary to us a Large Rifle Magnum primer in this cartridge ? I did buy 100 New Starline cases with the R on them to replace the brass that came with it from what I see in load books you cannot use the old style brass anymore. If you have any load data using this bullet please let me know.
Thank you, Fred Honeyager
