Sample text

Our approach will be a bit different still, as I have included a chapter dedicated to the care and feeding of your big-bore revolver and the discussion of terminal ballistics, a topic that has not been explored deeply enough for my taste, and one that is normally a topic addressed only from the perspective of rifle ballistics. Don’t let that scare you off, as I have not created a physics text book on the subject, but instead rather hopefully dispensed some of the myths that are frequently perpetuated by the hunting/gun magazine industry as a whole, some of which have been repeated so often as to be considered dogma.

At the very end of this chapter, we also took a look at a couple of rifle rounds that are relatively popular in big-bore revolver circles and that are chambered by Magnum Research in their long-framed BFR (Big Frame Revolver) guns. Their popularity with shooters and hunters alike earned them mention here. With each cartridge description, we have included our shooting impressions. While this is something completely subjective, we felt you might find it interesting if not helpful in your cartridge selection.

But, much more on this later. The decision to include a terminal ballistics chapter also stems from the constant comparisons that are made between rifle ballistics and those of big-bore revolvers. Rifles, by virtue of their much greater velocities, are subject to a very different dynamic than those of the short-barreled revolver replete with cylinder gap. To repeat and paraphrase a description coined by the gun builder John Linebaugh, a big-bore revolver is nothing more than a long-range punch press—nothing more, nothing less.
