Will also consider 6.5" 454.

Blue or stainless.

Does not need to be NIB...this will be a shooter. Just not interested with a specimen with a lot of rounds (say over 500). Only interested in adjustable sights.

Let me know what you got!

Maybe @TOBY458 has another one squirreled away under his bed?

No sir! I'm all out of revolvers.

I wish Ruger had made other bbl lengths for the blue mode Bisley besides 7.5". First one I got years ago I had a local smith lop 2" off of it, then predictably I sold it and been pining for it ever since!
They did 5.5 in SS and had one of those too. Only now just have a std 7.5 blue Bisley .45 Colt, a fairly recent purchase.
There was a special run a couple of years ago blue 5.5" with Turnbull colored frame, but those are hard to come by now, wishing I had bought one when they were under a grand. Tough find now.

Yes, the Turnbull is really nice and I am watching for one....

Now you get to try and find ammo for them! Ha! Ha! Ha!
I have brass and dies on the way for the Linebaugh.

I have an ACP cylinder for the Ruger, and 4K rounds of ammo. I do need to find some 45 Colt brass. I have a couple thousand bullets to get me started.

No worries for either of them!
I know. When Tarbe showed us his gun room with all the reloading stuff and ammo, I thought it was a throwback to the days of yore in a Cabelas, Sportsman’s Warehouse or somewhere else. He, like many others, planned ahead and are now reaping the benefits of having a variety of stuff on hand.

Just be glad he hasn’t posted a picture of himself in the bathtub full of primers

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
