Well, I've found a few online, but only the 7.5" tube with the ivory grips.

I believe I'm going to order one from the precision center instead. 6" barrel, case hardened frame, grip and hammer.

The only thing I'm unsure about are the grips. I really like the black micarta but the rubber grips may be more friendly if I ever feel the need to run it wide open. I believe my loads will be a 450 around 1100 and a 525 at 950-1000. Not top end.

What say you all as far as grips are concerned? The bisley is odd to me, but I got used to it on my 454 Ruger while running 335's at 1500 fps. The bfr bisley looks to be more comfortable than ruger's bisley.

Advise me ole great ones. I want to get it right from the start.

Having a 1982 vintage Ruger SBH 44 with wooden grips always seemed to have a little sting to my small frame hands. Therefore, when I went to the BFR (454-Casull,475-Linebaugh,500-JRH) I opted for the rubber grip on all three. In fact, my 454 being the first BFR I purchased came with the original square style hard rubber grip. The other two came with the newer solid molded rubber grip that comes with a wedge key to take them on and off. I really like these and wanted to keep all equally setup the same so I purchased the newer set for the 454 and made the switch. Sorry I have not shot any with the micarta grip. I?m very happy with the new rubber grip.
Good shooting
D.

I appreciate the feedback Buck. At this point I'm thinking I can always switch the rubber bumpers out if I don't like them and put a nice set of wood grips on there.
