Re: Long Range Pistol Hunting

I agree with the other guys too. As long as you want the ranges mentioned (or beyond) you will need to go to a bottleneck cartridge. Then going past 300 yards will be easy with a SP.

Re: Long Range Pistol Hunting

This dinosaur was purchased for the knockdown power for deer and bear at closer ranges(out to 200 yds). Believe it or not, when loaded to the standards for the 50AE, it is a pleasure to shoot. The only rounds that are hard on the shooter seem to be anything over 350 grain. Anything smaller can be shot all day. I guess I own it for the same reason that some guys own 460s and 500NE that never go to Africa. What is the reason other than to say that you have one?

Re: Long Range Pistol Hunting

I would have to agree with the statements for shooting the
distance you want to with the 500. While training in a
gunsmith shop I heard a few of our costumers talk about
shooting the long distance with handguns with no good
results, this is with pistol rounds, so a friend of mine
wanted to try this long distant pistol shooting and he had
a XP-100 in 7mm benchrest that he wanted punched out to a
7mm magnum, but the length of the step in front of the
chamber would not alow this so we decided on a 7x57 Ackley.
The results were great, so you might consider keeping you
big bore for some of the shorter shots say around 200
or less and trying to find you an XP or get a TC to go along
with what you have and do both short range and long range.
Another firearm would not be a bad thing.

Re: Long Range Pistol Hunting


Last summer we did some testing at long range with a 338 Nawakwa (Lapua IMP) with 300g SMK. We shot at 1000 Yards and 1 Mile. Yes this was with a hand gun
