Thanks for the invite. I’m not too far from you. I live in Diana, just North of Longview. I grew up in Plano. N Central Texas is homeBailey
If you are ever up through Farmersville, drop by for some German sausage and gun talk.
+1 on the .405 WCF cartridge. My Miroku Winchester 1895 and my Simson, both shoot 300 and 400 grain .405 loads well. The 400s at 2076 fps are a bit brisk in the 1895, but the double rifle tames them down nicely, even from a bench rest..
CRS, I am contemplating building a 45-70 Government double rifle or a .450 NE nr2 Jeffery on a Simson side x side shotgun action..according to the knowledgeable people the Simson side x side shotgun action is extremely strong and durable to be use as such a project..any comments on this statement will be much appreciated as well as opinions in this regards..
