    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.
