500 8 3/8
how hard is finding ammo for these guns? hows the recoil? i have a chance to buy a new one for 750 cash today. guys hurting for monies i guess. was going to buy the fnh 5.7, but i like this deal i think.
Ammo is easy: I roll my own on my Dillon 550, otherwise I couldn’t afford it. Recoil can be pretty stout. I wear padded bicycle gloves to shoot hot loads, but I prefer to load things down a bit. Loaded down it is a lot of fun.
If you can get one for $750, you probably want to grab it quick.
Reloading is your best option... It is expensive to feed factory, certainly less expensive if you reload. I reload for my buddies, it is easy to load for.
Recoil is stout. Manageable if you have shot large bore revolvers before... But it is certainly stout.
750$ is a good price if it hasn't been abused.
I enjoy mine. Do you others have any nice lesser loads to try?? When I got mine, it came from the previous owner with dies, powder, brass, primers, and 500gr bullets and the recipe for them but wow...they are pretty much full loads and kick like none other haha. Thanks.
