The .50/110 Revolver is Almost Too Much to Handle

Want to shake up your local gun range? Touch off a round from this .50/110 caliber revolver.

Shared on Youtube by EnviousConcepts2006 this revolver started out as a Magnum Research BFR revolver. It was then cut down and rechambered for the old hard hitting .50/110 buffalo cartridge. Yes, that is chambered for a full-sized rifle cartridge engineered in a past century for knocking American Bison off their feet.

The 1.5-inch barrel fires a 525 grain bullet at a blistering 1900 feet per second. That is combined with over 5000 foot pounds of pressure. Are you brave enough to shoot that?
