MRI's Big Frame Revolver is truly the biggest, finest revolver on the market today. Entirely manufactured in the US and like the legendary Desert Eagle pistol it is designed as a magnum from the ground up. The BFR is all stainless and has a cut rifled barrel that delivers unmatched accuracy with lead or jacketed bullets. The BFR is the most powerful production single action gun made and with 12 calibers and two frame sizes to choose from you can take everything from grouse to grizzly. Choose your chambering and frame size and have your favorite gun dealer locate one of the BFRs for you.

Important Warning Notice to Reloaders of .500 S&W Ammo

Commercial ammunition by Cor®Bon is now being manufactured with rifle primers. The original ammunition by Cor®Bon used pistol primers. No doubt that both ammunition types are in circulation as well as brass from Starline that has primer pockets for both pistol and rifle primers.

You can identify the primer pocket by examining the head-stamp of both Cor®Bon and Starline brass. Brass manufactured for rifle primers will have the letter "R" following the word Cor®Bon and the Starline symbol on the head-stamp. If it does not, the brass has a pistol primer pocket. DO NOT RELOAD RIFLE PRIMERS IN BRASS DESIGNED FOR USE WITH LARGE PISTOL PRIMERS. The rifle primer pocket in the brass WITH AN "R" HEADSTAMP is deeper than pistol primer pocket. Rifle primers will stand "proud" if loaded in brass designed for large pistol primers. This scenario is unsafe and will significantly increase the possibility of "simultaneous ignition" in a revolver. Such an event could be catastrophic for the firearm and the shooter. Please be aware and take care when reloading this high-pressure revolver cartridge.

Note: Hornady manufactured .500S&W ammunition has and will continue to use large pistol primers in its commercial product. Do Not attempt to use rifle primers with Hornady head-stamped .500S&W brass.

Additional note: Use of re-loaded ammunition in all Magnum Research firearm products voids any and all warranty for that product.
