    Thanks guys she is a beauty and a great shooter I really hate to part with her as she has done me well and she has been to zim and Mozambique but I am currantly having a new 470 nitro built and I don't need two my new one is setting me back 25k so this one has to go. With federal ammo she prints one inch groups per barrel about two inches apart with hornady she prints one inch groups just a bit larger and two inch low and left of the federal ammo but I have some hand loads in 500 gr and 350 that will almost shoot ragged holes one inch apart

    I know if you where to shop a bit you may find one around the same price or less but you won't find one with this kinda wood or leather wrapped case for the price

    Hey Uintelkhunter,
    Did you find a buyer for this gorgeous DR? Not an option for me right now, just saw the post and wondered if you sold it.
    Also, I see you're from Utah and with your handle I'm guessing you are out in the Uinta basin? We have probably shared some stomping grounds :) I grew up tromping around the Uinta mountains and Book Cliffs, as well as Flaming Gorge and Green River. Shot a nice 4 point muley buck in the Book Cliffs with a bow in '99 which was the first open year after the closure out there. Best mule deer hunt ever!
    Good hunting to you

    Don't blame you a bit! Beautiful gun.
    Good luck on the sheep tag (y) That would be an awesome hunt and I hope you get to do it someday. I keep putting in four the Nine Mile unit every year, but will probably never draw it. Too far behind in points, but ya never know :D

    Would take 5000 and a fully guided buff hunt for 6 days in the nt in Australia for it mate as this gun is exactly what I want as they fit me perfectly I have tried out every other double at the shows and none fit like the chapius ! This is a serious offer ! The first bull we got this was shot at 30 m and goes 95 sci and there are much bigger ones out there , where we hunt is traditional thick scrub surround small floodplains by a major river system !
