To be honest my purchase of a double recently is because I didn't have one in my collection of rifles, I've always wanted one and I am now at a point in my life where I can comfortably afford a double. Not to mention I also just really enjoy reloading for big bores and shooting them. Having said all this, all my rifles end up out in the field hunting and my double in 470 will be coming with me on a scrub bull/buffalo hunt late June this year. As far as application of double rifles in the field goes, obviously a double chambered in 470 is mostly suited to short range work on big game/dangerous game, so I am one of those people considering another double in a chambering with a bit more versatility such as one of the 375's. If I do end up buying a double in a 375 calibre I will definitely be mounting a low power 1-4 Leupold scope on it for hunting areas that are more open and not really suitable for the 470.
