recoil question

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?

Thanks for the info xd.
Ok thank you very much folks for all the info. I think I'll just have to find a less potent alternative.
Thanks for all the info folks, and that is correct xd it will be for P/W season this comming fall if I am able to get it in time otherwise I will just wait until next year. :gun:
Again, thank you all for your wonderful suggestions. I think I finally figured out how to solve my little problem of not knowing what other caliber to switch to. And maybe some of you folks who do your own reloading might be able to help me out on this. Can anyone tell me where to get 200gr .357 rounds? I know that Cor-Bon makes some, but I don't really want to pay that much for them to be shipped to me. I also know that they are made for reloading. Does anyone here possibly have the equipment needed to load a few for me? I will pay for all supplies needed and also for your time loading them if anyone is willing to do so.
I finally decided to just go ahead and order some 200grain double taps from midway. I will let everyone know how they work out in a few weeks.
