He calls it The Big Friendly Revolver. I was thinking BFR stood for something else. That sucker would break my wrist. I have a S&W 360PD. It's a tiny j-frame thing, with a scandium alloy frame and a titanium cylinder. It weighs 12.5 ounces empty, maybe a full pound loaded with magnum ammo. It hurts to shoot maggies through that little thing. Specials aren't too bad, though.

Those had to be reduced pressure rounds. I shot a Marlin Guide rifle in 45-70 a couple of times and have no desire to shoot another, the recoil was brutal.

Yeah, a buddy of mine has two substantial rifles chambered for 45/70 and he says it damn near breaks his shoulder shooting either one.

He was firing 300 grain projectiles, I can only imagine what it would be like using 405 or 500 grain bullets in that thing.
