That’s what I’m thinking. Is it cool? Hell yeah! However, if you wanted one for bears or moose, why not just get a rifled 12 gauge? 3” magnum shells will drop anything outside of AfricaIf it was a takedown. I imagine the AK bush pilots would buy them all. .500 S&W gets near 12 gauge slug power levels. I've said for a couple of years that a 500 S&W levergun would be slick.
12 month wait? Cabelas?12 month wait time is...long. Meanwhile, Cabelas has S&W 500 in stock today.
Not so.First... Gunbroker has a bunch of BFR. No wait.
Second ... dude, Cabelas? - f*ck that place.
Third ... the new SW will probably cost you around $1,400-1,500 (or more), compared to a higher quality BFR at $1,200.
If you are still stuck on a SW 500, give your money to a NES member. @CrackPot had one, maybe he still has it.
My friend just bought a 500. He started reloading so I helped him set up. here's what we've come up for cost(I'm rounding up to nearest 10c):last time i checked ammo for the 500 was crazy stupid expensive. that was over 5 years ago. dies and new empty brass was a little less crazy stupid but still in the stupid realm. i worked with a guy at the time who owned one and was going broke feeding it.
