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?

I dont know about the difference but i heard one guy say that his would break open from the recoil. Id think a .444 would be a better choice.

what ya trying to say?

The .444 has less recoil than the 45-70.

Spmwheels you wanting this for deer hunting right?
