    Two single action 5 shot revolvers: Freedom Arms .475 with a 10" barrel and brake. Leupold 2.5-8X scope. And a custom 5 shot by American gunsmith John Gallagher on a Ruger Bisly frame. Both guns are tremendously accurate. In my experience I find that the 475`s are not as nasty as the 454`s are when standard weight for caliber bullets are used ( 400gr in the .475 and 300gr in the .454 )

    Hi James,

    Neat guns! Really like the Bisley style guns. I have one of the Accusport convertible .45's in the Bisley style and love it.

    I know the gun and it was one sweet set up. With handloads in the 30,000 PSI range in your gun its a potent package. I`am having a custom worked on that keeps the Ruger cylinder in 45 Colt because of the range of power.....

    I have found the same to be true, light bullets give whippy recoil in the .475 . So, I just shoot heavy for caliber bullets in my revolvers and don't worry about it.
