I was visiting my wife's relatives yesterday when her Nephew say's 'Hey, look what I've got!' and pulled a neat, little NEF in 500 S&W out of the case. 'Picked it up for $200 bucks from a friend' he said, "along with a box and a half of ammo". I looked at it's compact dimensions and the tru-glow sights and when he asked if I wanted to shoot it, I said 'H#!! yes!' It was a ball and I wish he had brought more ammo but he only had 3 rounds left in the box he had with him. He said he had the other box at home but he was rationing himself as the ammo was $45 a box! He mentioned that he may not keep the gun because of the cost of feeding it (he doesn't reload). Hmmmm. On one hand I would love to have it but on the other, would it really do anything my 45-70 will not? (and does that really matter?) Decisions, decisions! 44 Man

Tim,
My 500 shoots 440 grain bullets with .458 meplats. I haven't needed to shoot the 45-70 yet. It pokes big clean holes through animal flesh. I haven't shoot anything living with the 700's yet...but I will.
