Just got back from the range and let me you, the trigger is smooth. Doesn't kick as hard as I thought it would, thanks to the weighted barrel. Took my XD45 along for the ride to compare and the Smith's recoil was just a tad harder than the XD. The Smith is accurate! Very accurate! I was hitting a 5 gallon jug 75 yards out almost every time and I'm not the best shot. Question though for those of you who has a wheel gun and speedloaders, what's your technique for the most efficient reload? This is my first time using speedloaders and I was having a hard time trying to find a technique that works for me.

Right - release, left - secure gun and cylinder, right - eject shells, right - load and grip, left - close cylinder. Cant say it's the best, but it works for me.

If you want quick efficient speed loaders, get Speed Beez. I have those for my 44 Magnum. Unfortunately they don't seem to make them for a 500 Magnum.
