Showing off fireballs from some big-bore revolvers up close (VIDEO)

While many consider a .357 fairly stout, there is an entire category of revolvers out there that make that ole Magnum pale in comparison.

After talking merch for the first couple minutes, Matt with Demolition Ranch transitions to the wheelgun madness starting at about the 2:30 mark. Rolling with a .357 Smith for starters, he shows off a .410/.45LC Taurus Judge, an invisible .44 Mag, a .500 S&W Mag, and, after a bit of lead-up, a Magnum Research BFR in .45-70 Government.

Now that last one is a hoss, especially when you couple it with an Underwood +P 305-grain Xtreme Penetrator capable of generating something like 3,700 ft/lbs of energy at the muzzle. Then come the fireworks.
