I suffered a setback yesterday, Kynoch has not .475 Eley # 2 in stock and can not guarantee when they get it. Have based myself on reloading, but would not mind me some Kynoch shot to curb abstinences to all charging components are in place.

Huntington has Die set, Horneber has sleeves and W has bullets .... To my great surprise, my nearest hunting store have the right gunpowder in stock (y)

Beautiful rifle Fury! Love the Ele engraving. Sweet deal on the ejectors, you would certainly think the dealer would have confirmed that prior to pricing the rifle. Always nice when a mistake favors the buyer.

I'm going to use loads from Graeme Wright book "Shooting The British Double Rifle (3rd. Edition), and try to regulate the barrels.

The rifle has been regulated with Kynoch ammunition.
Powder: Cordite.
Charge: 85 grains.
Bullet: 480 grains.

According to page 98, I'm going to try out.
Powder: IMR 4831.
Charge: 113 grains with Dacron filler.
Bullet: 480 grains.
Case: Bertram.

Fury, have you asked AH members for their "loading information" for the rifle you bought. I'll bet some of the guys can help you out, providing you ask them nicely. By the way, that is a beautiful rifle. Good luck on the Buffalo!!

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.
