Congratz on your first double. Chapuis make a very nice rifle I have a 9.3 that is my favorite followed by my VC in 450/400. You will find the caliber to be easy to shoot and is a great round for your buffalo.

Chapuis are fine doubles and you picked a very versatile caliber (just procured a K-Gun in 450/400). Soft shooting but with a big punch! Enjoy your shake down cruise next outing...Congrats!

As far as advice on your first time at the range, I found that maintaining proper, consistent trigger pressure when switching from the front trigger to the back trigger was very important. I was pulling the shots on the left barrel (back trigger) to the left until I figured this out.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
