What do you think? Fun to shoot? Expense? Source of good but cheap bullets?

Or is the whole idea nuts?

I shot one of John Linebaugh's .500 guns in Wyoming once. It was fun but I have a hard time justifying anything past .44 Mag, especially now that I no longer have to worry about grizzlies anyway. Also I'm 70, probably can't take too much recoil any more, but there are always light loadings...

Once you go big bore...you stay big bore! Bisley SBH .480Rugers are fun to shoot. Montana Bullets in 325, 355 or 380gr at 1000-1200fps are very manageable. More expensive, but superb are the Lehigh 330gr solid copper.
