    I spent a couple hours at the local indoor range Sunday, watching ALLEN sight in his 500 mag revolver
    and I can assure you its was rather informative,
    We were using both factory hornady 300 grain ammo

    and my hand-loads posed earlier in the thread, (above)
    I was rather amazed at the big difference in accuracy and impact point!
    his revolvers previously sighted in with the hand loads and its hitting dead center horizontally and vertically ,
    with a nice tight group of about 2" at 25 yards for allen,
    when I shoot the 500 S&W revolver the groups tight but about 1" low at 25 yards
    I noticed the front sights not easy to see in the reduced lighting in the range.
    swapping to the hornady ammo, recoils noticeably a bit snappy ,
    but no more difficult to control , with the factory hornady ammo,
    but both of our groups impacted about 6-7 inches lower and 6-7 inches to the right.
    even with max sight adjustment that can,t be compensated for.
    so we just re-sighted in with the same hand loaded hard cast ammo hes been successfully using.


    btw the range charges $1 a target, you can download and print 10 or more for that price

    pay attention at how the hard cast bullets zip through ,
    the 64" of ballistic jell and how the hollow point jacketed,
    don,t come close to the same penetration
