  • Hello Mike, need some help with 450NE double.
    I am in Africa and we use Somchem powder, my double was regulated to 90g of S365 which is IMR4350 according to the conversion. I noted in one of your posts you use IMR4831 which is close to our S385.
    What load would be safe to start with and what's max?
    Kind regards
    David

    I use 95 grains of IMR 4831 for my loads with a 480 grn bullet. I don't know what your powder is and would not want to guess.
    I'd start 10% under and work up "IF" that is the right conversion.
    Regarding the Verney Carron double you mentioned not shooting to decent regulation, I have heard of a few others, not many, same maker, doing same. A guy from Texas had one, I think it was in .450 nitro, that shot similar, and he and Ken B., along with participation from Verney Carron, I think, all agreed to ship it off to JJ at Champlin's for his re-regulation; paid for my Ken and Verney Carron.

G'day Bob,
Just had a yarn with A G, and he has filled me in on how much work he puts in to such developments, referencing QuikLoad, tightening tolerances, load development, range testing. He indicated that of you wish to contact him directly he can go into details far better than I.
If you wish , contact him directly, he has given the OK for me to pass that on.

Hi,
Going through and old thread I see you mentioned having a William Douglas double in 470NE for sale. Just touching base to see if you sold the rifle, or if it was still for sale?
