Best 500 Smith Wesson load

Anyone have a good load for a 500 Smith ? Factory or reloads, as I am going to load my own anyway. Thanks

Yea! I am going out west on a DIY spot and stalk bear hunt and there is a chance of running into a grizzly so I would like some backup!

In that case I would recommend blanks for your application!

If your hunting with one of those people take your 22 and shoot him in the knee. It will give you time to get away while the griz mauls him and its a lot cheaper than wasting a $3 bullet to save someone you don't like.
