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?

That is a great round in a very sweet rifle!

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.

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.

On the vx6 2-12 what does the zl2 stand for?

Thanks, Oliver

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Good morning friends

i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.

also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
