For what it's worth, for a .450-400 3" I use two loads with a 400-grain Woodleigh soft nose: 80 grains of IMR 4831 if the old rifle was proved for 55 grains of cordite and 83 grains if proved for 60 grains of cordite. Large rifle magnum primer. 2-3 grains less if shooting a Woodleigh solid.

I find from reading this thread that the only sure way to get a double rifle that shoots worth a damn is to have it custom built. Pick your caliber, bullet and load, have it regulated for that load. Then go buy up all the bullets you can find for it so you have a lifetime supply and won't have to worry about feeding it for the rest of your life.

It’s not quite that drastic.

Aaron Little is the name of the guy that, at least used to, re-regulate rifles.

I managed to get ahold of Ken Owen. He is still available to work. So I will be sending it off to him after my trip. If anyone else has a similar issue I recommend looking him up, and I'll post an update when I get the rifle back.
