I have a handi-rifle I am considdering getting a new barrel for in 500s&w but first I would like to find out if anyone can tell me what the recoil is. I have a savage 111 270win that I am comfortable shooting but do not want to get much higher in recoil than that. Is there anyone who can give me an idea on the difference?

buddys dad has a 500 handi and he wont shoot it anymore due to the recoil. te sold it and got a 444. the 444 handi is a sweet little shooting rifle. it has been my primary hunting rifle for the past 3 years and will knock a whitetail in the dirt with a Hornady 265 gr lever revolouion but it soes kick a little more than my 270 but not that much just get a limbsaver recoil pad on it and you will be good to go.
