That is what I plan on doing. Thank youI picked up a lightly used FA M83 in 454 about 2 years ago. I only paid $1100 so I think I got a good deal. It was made in the 90’s and it looked very lightly used so I was pleased when I got it. I found out why it looked new when I made my first range trip - it hurt to shoot. Now I’m not recoil sensitive and I have a 4” S&W 500 and it had more recoil than the 500.
I sent it off to Magnaport and had it ported, along with an action job and it was well worth it. It made a world of difference and it’s a great revolver. I have a chest rig that allows me to snap a leather piece under the hammer and I carry it with 5.
I can’t say I’ve ever fired for groups but I have dropped a feral hog at 95 yards with it. I’ve never fired to 200 but I’m sure it would do it. I’d stick with FA and I’d buy used. If you watch Gunbroker and take your time you can find a good deal.
