I love little doubles......my favorite one is a O/U Stutzen! in 7x72R, made by Wilhelm Brenneke himself...

Now if you need someone in the states to babysit that 9.3x72 I am willing to take on the job:) That would be a nice double.

What a neat little rifle! Have you been able to work up a load that it will shoot accurately?

My load is a 140 gr Sierra Pro Hunter, original load was a 139 gr soft point round nose.

Both barrels shoot accurate, but not to the same point of impact.

You would not realize that with iron sights at 50 yard, but with a scope at 100 meters.

I find it very interesting that they built it on a full stock Stutzen, I haven't seen that done on a double before, seen on many brake open action Stutzen stalking rifles. Always had a soft spot for that style of rifle.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?
