Read Elmer Keith's "Sixguns". He was making shots of several hundred yards with open sighted revolvers.

Re: Longest shot with a revolver?

Practice is everything!
I'm not that good and for big game I would keep my shots at bowhunting distance (I shoot a recurve, so don't take 90yd shots).
But, if all is perfect and the planets aligned I would take a longer shot with open sights.
With my scoped guns, well, I would shoot a little farther.
Have fun with yours and post pictures of your kills!
