It will come with 6 rounds of ammo but no loading dies or brass. Brass is easy enough to make from 460 weatherby brass that is one of the reasons I chose the cartridge for my 50 cal big bore rifle.

Recoil I would expect to be significant with full house loads but I was planning on loading for around 2200-2250 fps with 570 grain pills and not going for the max fps. Price to pay for good stopping cartridge performance in a rifle that you can actually carry. This rifle should come in around 10 to 10.5 pounds didn't bother to put it on a scale.....

@USMA84DAB has some experience with the 500AS.
Maybe he will chime in with regards to the rifle weight vs recoil.
Although I truly believe felt recoil has more to do with stock fit than anything else.
Good luck with the sale.

The rifle has about 15 rounds throught it and the scope is brand new, just mounted and bore sighted. I have over 200 factory rounds of ammo also. Rifle has case and sling. please let me know. Thanks TGE. PS I am in Charlotte, NC

Per BeeMaa -

I worked at A-Square for most of a year. I ran ammo production. Built my own .495 A-Square on a Sako action (southpaw). The Coil-Check stock makes the BIG bore/.510" firing manageable. The AHR stock will be a bit more "sporty" as it is smaller, has a smaller grip area, etc.. I have not fired an AHR - just going from prior A-Square experience. I used my .495 to stalk bunnies in SD windrows, so one can get used to recoil.

Does it have recoil reducers? The long barrel means alot of weight to ameliorate the recoil impulse.

The cases are available out there if you look hard.

Simple approach - load your cartridges to a level you can effectively shoot, given the recoil impulse.

I hope this rifle goes to a good home!

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
