    That is, I don't know. Personally, I remember buying a Ruger single six in .30 carbine and that is the most painful revolver I have ever fired because of the sharp report. It sort of made me shy of rifle calibers in a revolver. I do have a Wincherster in .45LC and couple of .45LC revolvers though.

    With my luck I'd be the guy who puts a dent in his skull. Although I think it would be fun as anything to squeeze a few rounds off just to say I did.

    That's why I made walnut thumb rest on my Ruger .44 mag. good common sense.

    I’ve shot a Thompson Contender in .35 Remington. It was a bit of a handful. I’m guessing that
    MR revolver outdoor be significantly heavier! Be fun to shoot, though!

    That's why I got carbines in .357 and 9mm...not much need for a rifle caliber handgun around here.

    Of course, cut down .410 hulls work well in a Webley ;)

    Never had a Webley, gonna get me one someday. Think I'll pass on that big ole revolver in .30-30 though. It's an interesting review for a hunting revolver. The .30-30 is not a high-pressure round and with that big cylinder and ten inch barrel, I'll her the recoil isn't too bad. I wouldn't want a ten inch revolver as a companion gun for a lever carbine or rifle. If I got one, it would be as a primary hunting weapon.
