Hello Riflemen-Here is my BFR4570. I pack it most any time I'm in the Oregon woods. The little 22 magnum revolver is for some humor contrast. I prefer the wood grips and reload my ammo to about jayco's levels. It's a serious handgun and certainly no gimmick. Life is good, BestLever

I have looked at and held those BFR4570's and they are a handfull WOW! They have changed what Clint said about the most powerful hand gun in the world. I figured I would stick to my model 629

Wow, that is cool.
To seize the opportunity of a lifetime you must do so within the lifetime of that opportunity.
The BFR is awesome to say the least and very accurate . One problem though , once you get it then you need the American Derringers 45/70 pocket rocket to complete the set .

I have a BFR in 45-70 and will not disagree with what the other BFR owners have said. I also have 2 OM Rugers, one in .44 Mag and the other in .357 Mag. The fit and finish of the BFR equals, if not surpass, them.
Right now I'm loading/shooting 300gr cast and 25gr. of 2400 powder. Seems like a good load. I've also shot what I normally shoot in my 45-70 rifles which is 405gr cast and 31gr. H4198. The BFR handles them just fine, but I feel like 2400 is a better match to a barrel which is shorter than a rifle.
From the MR website:
"The 45/70 will produce the same velocity as the 454 Casull with 2/3 less pressure, and a lot less noise and muzzle flash. This is because the 45/70 case is longer so it allows for different types of gunpowder to be used and the case has more room for the burning and expanding gases to expand. The end result is less pressure, less wear and tear on the gun, less noise and less recoil."
"The .45/70 can be hand-loaded to exceed .454 Casull velocity and still be under 30,000 PSI! There is the big advantage. Much less recoil and half the working pressure means the guns will shoot better and last longer. Ammo is also a lot less expensive and more readily available. THE LONG .45/70 CARTRIDGE DOES NOT MEAN MORE RECOIL IT MEANS MUCH LESS PRESSURE BECAUSE THE POWDER HAS MORE ROOM TO EXPAND, GIVING EQUAL PERFORMANCE WITH LESS PRESSURE. "

will you please get that for me?"
Sure does seem like a great compliment to the rifle. I carry the 1895 Cowboy.. 26" barrel so this would help in the tight areas while hunting !!
Hmm i think i just got my next reason to give the wife!
I told my bride 22 yrs ago that guns are like golf, you can't play the game with just one club.
You better go get it.
