This thread is particularly timely.

I placed an order for a 500 JRH BFR from the custom shop about 2 weeks ago. Now I just need to wait a short 5 1/2 months for the gun to be built.

I am just getting started amassing everything to load for the JRH and so far only have my order of 500 S&W brass in hand. My goal is to have everything together and ammo loaded when the BFR finally arrives.

BTW: I blame the guys over at single actions, and particularly Max for putting the ridiculous idea in my head that I need a 50 caliber handgun. The pic he posted over there of his Bisley with the 6 1/2" barrel and black micarta grips was what finally pushed me over the edge.
