Re: Revolver Ram

That's impressive. A great hunting story with a fantastic ending. Must have been hard packing out the meat. Did it make any records? Revolvers make for a great hunt. Tell us more, what load did you use? Were you standing or resting on something? 75 yards is a good distance for the 454 so after the ...

Revolver Ram

DIY. Second DCUA Walkin Ram for me. 38.5" 11 yo. 71 yds with the Freedom Arms 454 Casull. I thank the Lord and my partner Roy. Over the years I'd been hoping to get a Ram in this class and also get a shot at one with my pistol. Both happened on this trip. Also we got him 1 day before my 61st Bi...

Re: NM BH Flattop Anniversary .44 mag

LOL.... John Gallagher did the trigger job on mine too! Well, and a few other things I obtained my Master's degree in 2006 and my wife bought me one to mark the occasion. I still have it. Mine need a trigger job, which John Gallagher took care of for me, but it's otherwise as-issued except for the g...

Re: Thinking of changing grips

Micarta is tough and practical for a working/hunting gun. Send your grip frame to Zane at Lone Star Custom Grips. He just did some Micarta for my Bisley Hunter. I had him put some palm swell and they are sweet. m https://image.ibb.co/gouVpx/P4100004.jpg https://image.ibb.co/hDYO9x/P4100005.jpg https...

Good for you! Everyone should have at least one set of Rowen grips on a custom wheelgun.

Re: SBH Hunter Scoped Holster

Thanks mncamnphunt. Snyd, that looks like a very secure rig. If that is a SBH Hunter in the second photo, what size scope do you have on it? Same gun in all pics. Different grips in one pic. SBH Hunter with 2x28 Weaver which is the same size as a 4x28 Leupold which I have now. http://image.ibb.co/h...

Re: Super Black Hawk Hunter Bisley 45 Colt Value

Your experiences mirror mine. My 355gr 1200fps load is same poa/poi as my 255gr 950ish fps plinker load out to about 50yds. I had one of those 2X weavers on mine for years. Last year a buddy gave me a 4X leupold, same dimensions as the Weaver. I like it better at 100-150yds. In a field position with...
