    I see they get their castings from Pine Tree Castings, which is Ruger's Investment Casting house.

    The video makes you want one! Great video and informative on the manufacturing of the BFR.

    I do have one. ;)

    They may not be considered custom revolvers, but they are darn close!

    ^ yeah but what caliber? Me thinks I’m not up to the rifle calibers and everything else would be expensive for me to shoot.

    But very cool video and I believe they’re quality guns, even though they don’t admit to the Big Fricking Revolver monicker

    Interesting video. Most interesting of all was the difference between the shooting of said revolvers by the host of the video Alexa Score and the founder of the original company Jim Tertin. Ol' Jim never flinched an eyelash regardless of what caliber he shot. Miss Score on the other hand..........;..

    Do you blame her? I don't.

    @huntsman: They are excellent hunting revolvers and accurate. I would stick to calibers with the short cylinder personally. Mine is 480 Ruger/475 Linebaugh. All you need.

    All you need maybe, but I’ve got to say I’m really enamored with my .460. That damn thing is lightning in a bottle.

    My BFR 30/30, and my 44 mag, will be sold... after I have departed, as they are just plain shooters. The guys joke me about adding to the deer thirty thirty tales, but with one of the loudest pistols, in the area. It took some time, but boy, was it fun learning how to shoot, and reload for, those BFR's! Thanks for the video.
