Beautiful gun. I imagine that would be quite a handful.

Been thinking about 500jrh in a BFR but was wondering about recoil looks like it would put the hurt on a pig. 460 and 44 covers every thing I need to shoot but that 50 cal is calling but will have to wait bought a 10mm AR Friday

I HAVE A 7.5 INCH BFR BISLEY IN 500JRH AND IT REALLY HANDLES THE RECOIL, HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.

I have a 6.25? BFR Bisley and it is a great handling gun. Shooting 440gr over a healthy dose of longshot the recoil is substantial but oddly not abusive.

I love my 7.5" BFR Bisley in 500JRH. Shooting 475gr over a a heavy load of H110 getting about 1250fps. Very accurate and the weight/design of the BFR tames the recoil admirably. I have shot a 475L conversion on a Ruger frame and it seems to be a little more "snappy" perhaps because of the lighter frame. Yours is a beautiful revolver.

That is a beautiful gun. I have a 5.5 inch 500 Linebaugh built by Linebaugh. It is built like a bank vault.

I have to say the top end loads, 450-525 grain bullets pushed hard are beyond my liking as a handgun shooter. They're just more than my old wrists want to take. A 450 grain at 900-1000 fps is plenty for me. Very shootable and still a very big hammer.

I must have missed this first time.That thing is gorgeous. I have always want some 1/2" bore wheelgun but keep getting lured into more weird stuff. Sooner or later.......

GOT TO CHONY SOME LOADS TODAY (3/29/20) IN MY BOTIQUE BISLEY NIMROD 500JRH BY JRH (THE REVOLVER PICTURED AT THE BEGIINING OF THIS TOPIC). 400gr MISSOURI BULLET COMPANY PC'ed RNFP IN STARLINE CASES: 1) 12grs UNIQUE AND FED 150 PRIMERS, 3 SHOTS AVERAGED 1,021fps; AND 2) 21grs N110 AND FED 155M PRIMERS, 6 SHOTS AVERAGED 1,064fps. I LIKE THE N110 LOAD, FASTER AND MORE ACCURATE THAN THE UNIQUE LOAD, AND VERY SHOOTABLE TOO. WAS THINKING IT WUD CHONO 1,100fps, MAY TRY 22grs OF N110, WHICH SHUD EASILY GET ME TO 1,100fps AND PROBABLY MORE, BUT 1,064fps WITH A 400gr BULLET WITH A GENEROUS MEPLAT OUGHT TO WORK JUST FINE FOR MOST OCCASIONS.
