New set of wood grips on the 500. Thinking’ I might go round to square but conversion next time. Need to see how it feels shooting it first. Seen some reports that the wood grips are brutal but hoping that depends on the load. Keeping the Houge grips for bear loads.

Was hoping for something close to the grips on my .45 Blackhawks. Not quite but close. The camera picks up the brown in the Ruger grips a little better. To just look at them, they aren’t far off.

Nice grips! Might not be great with recoil, but they look really nice!
I’m hoping those cowboy loads I’m making are manageable. Less recoil but more muzzle energy than the Armscor factory loads. I’ll keep ahold of the other grip for shooting hot loads.

Good plan. Who knows though, might be real comfortable with the new wood.
