  3. A New Choice

    Posted by John on 22nd Nov 2012

    I just tried the Bead Load 440gr for the first time. Less hand shock than expected. Shoots better than the 350gr XTP and found to be very accurate on 25 meter targets. The price that Ventura Munitions offers them for, make them a very affordable practice round.

  4. Shot the 300 grain and 440 grain.

    Holy Cow this ammo is great stuff. I shot the 300 grain in my S&W 500 and was no harder than my hottest 44 magnum very managable. Then I shot the 440.......OK now there's some power there. Very stout recoil but managable also. I could shoot it one handed (but not for long). The 440 grain will stop any Brown Bear I'm packs a wollop. I plan to usse more HSM in the future, it's accurate and very affordable.

  5. .500 Bear Load

    The 350 gr XTP and the 400 gr Kodiak have a pretty sharp recoil. I was a little concerned that if the velocity of the 440 gr hardcast was similar to the 1700-1750 fps of the other two rounds that the recoil would be more than I would want to handle. Didn't have an chronograph information but I got a box anyway. I shot it yesterday and I think it is now my favorite Hunting Shack ammo! The recoil was quite manageable... I would guess that the velocity must be down around 1400 fps... When I shot the 350 gr XPT into a couple of 1" boards and two 3 1/2" phonebooks... the phone books stopped them. When I shot the 440 hardcast, the bullet went through it, couple of 2" thick boards that I stacked up behind it, and shattered of 2-3" thick grape stakes... So basically went through about 6-7" of dry phonebooks and 8-9" of wood... I found the bullets embedded in the dirt behind it and still looking in great shape... the XTP rounds shattered and 2 of the 5 had the lead separated from the metal jacket. The 440 hardcast is now going to be my heavy practice ammo and what I will bring on my two yearly trips fishing in Alaska. Much better penetration than the 350 gr. XTP and considerably less recoil that the other two heavy loads tha HSM offers for the .500 S&W.
