    Hi,

    Is there anyone here who has reloading data to caliber .475 no.2 NE [Eley]?
    I bought a double rifle last year in this caliber. The weapon was regulated with the Original Kynoch ammunition from the 1960s ...
    This ammunition is not produced anymore in the factory, so I have to try me forward with new charges by the use of modern gunpowder.

    Is it an Eley or a Jeffery?

    It's an Eley...with .483" bullets.
    I've got a copy of Graeme Wright's book, and we are going to start testing with IMR 4831 Powder soon. :)

    Pierre van der Walt's book African Dangerous Game Cartridges, (a book that should be in everyone's library) has a chapter on both 475's with reloading data included.

    Thank you so much ... I'll try to get ordered that book ... Let's hope that the charges presented in the second book "Shooting The British Double Rifle" will help me to get a good regulated charge.

    I'll second the suggestion of Woodleigh's book, and suggest that you email Woodleigh directly. They've been very prompt and helpful to me in the past with load data prior to and after the release of their book.
