Ruger Super Redhawk in the Toklat configuration (.454 Casull.)
Plenty big enough for anything I will ever hunt.

My favorite is whichever one I have in my hand when I am within 50 yards of large game!

Mine is my Ruger SBH Bisley in .44 with 7.5" barrel. Open sights (fiber optic) with my hand loads - crazy accurate and deadly.

I have a Rough Country Bowen model adjustable Rear sight ordered to make the change to a stronger and more reliable rear sight, and after shooting rounds from all three I will let you know. The front sight will be changed to a taller one, but first I want to see what happens using the front factory red insert sight as supplied.

Looking at purchasing a 6.5 inch Smith and Wesson 500 X-frame with a half-lug barrel and integral comp of three ports each side of the front sight. I plan to shoot 500 JRH aka 500 S&W Magnum Short. No need for the full blown load when the 500 JRH loaded with the proper bullet has all the power one needs for anything that walks, crawls or approaches in a menacing manner.
Will join my 5 inch 460 Smith and Wesson magnum in which 454 Casull is a pleasure to shoot. Feels like having a 3 1/2 12 Gauge semi-auto that shoots 2 3/4 and 3 inch shells. There when I want or need it, but shooting 2 3/4 and 3 inch mostly.

That is a great looking revolver, and something for me to aspire to! How do you like the BFR "Bisley" grips on something as big as the .500 JRH?
