I am in the process of acquiring another revolver (6.5" barrel) for hunting. It's a BFR in 480/475. It is not barrel heavy. I don't know if I'll mount a scope/red dot on this one until I shoot it a bit. But I would prefer to leave in iron sighted. It will take some practice to be able to hit a 6" paper plate at distances over 50 yds. I just hope it is more comfortable to shoot than the SRH.
22-rimfire,

After much practice I'm out to about 80yds. with the same BFR with irons as you're getting. Course that is from a rest and would feel confident taking a shot on a deer at that range on flat terrain. What I need practice with is how high I'll hit on a uphill/downhill shot at different distances versus the same distances shooting flat.
In other words, I need to spend more time with the BFR before I take to the woods.

Too, I think you'll find the BFR more comfy then the SRH with the 480's.The hot 475's can be a handful.
