I had the honor of wringing out the prototype and got the opportunity to kill the first head of game with it and it's a winner.

FYI, BASED UPON MY RECOLLECTIONS FROM THE OLD YO HANDGUN HUNTS, THE "F" IN BFR DOES NOT STAND FOR FRAME OR FINEST, THE WORD STARTS WITH AN F, ENDS WITH A G, AND HAS A K IN THERE TOO, BUT BEST JUST TO SAY "BFR".

That was in the early days of the BFR, Rey!

I think BFRs are the absolute best bang for the buck. They keep making significant refinements to these great revolvers.

Max,

Seems like forever ago I inquired about that picture you posted. I'm glad it's now a reality. Thank you for helping make this happen.

May have to skip a payment on the house, but I'm going to own one!

Thank you. I tested the prototype (and killed the Fallow buck) in late '17. They are available now....

Was thinking about holding out when I heard about this at an event at the Whittington Center earlier this year but went ahead and got the 500JRH instead. I guess I have to start saving again since now I want one LOL.

While I really like them both, when I went through the safari course at the FTW Ranch in Texas, I was doing speed loading drills with the .500 Linebaugh and it was easy getting hung-up while trying to extract the big, garbage can-like cases of the .500 Linebaugh. The .500 JRH is easier to extract in a hurry. Not picking nits, just making an observation.
