    I think I know what BFR stands for, but maybe you could give me a hint to see if I'm right?

    Heh, yea, my guess was the latter!

    I didn't know they were making revolvers in .444 Marlin. That must be a heck of a fun gun to shoot! I've fired a couple of revolvers in .45-70, which is my big rifle (Marlin 1895XLR), but I don't own one.

    I do own, however, a Ruger Super Redhawk in .480 Ruger, and that in and of itself is more than enough gun for me. Nothing in N. America that it won't kill, and she's purdy and accurate. It's a 7.5 inch barrel, and I think had I gone any longer and it would be a big burden to carry anywhere, and any smaller, and you lose too much velocity coming out of the barrel. 7.5 really seems to be the happy medium.

    I do know what you mean. Are you looking for a revolver to actually hunt with? Or one to carry as a backup in case of a rifle failure?

    I guess both, it would do away with humping two kinds of ammo.

    I like the .444. The bad thing is that .444 is getting harder to find while .45-70 is getting easier to find. But... since you have the Marlin .444 rifle already I can see why you want a .444. It's one heck of a brush gun. I sure do miss mine. They kick (the BFR's) less than the .45-70, I think even less than BFR's .454 and for sure less than a snub nose .460.! :crazy::wink:

    If you get a BFR in .444 for under $750 your doing good! (last time I checked that it.)

    Darn, I'm with 223reload, I'll shot my 22s. I can go up to a 44 mag and it is all I want to shoot. Guess I'm a sissy. Come to think of it, I have not shot my 44 mag for 8 or 9 months.
