And it looks like factory Recknagel mounts. Lovely rifle. I bet it shoots.

Is that an over/under double in 450/400? very unusual! and I don't think I have seen any double rifle with a schnabel fore end.
It's beautiful. Enjoy.

Like your rifle, wish mine had the factory Recknagel mounts. It is one of the most accurate double I have ever shot. When you get to the point of needing reloading data send me a PM and I will share what I have developed for mine to give you a starting point.

Beautiful rifle! Congratulations.

I opened this thread thinking I was going to drool over another rifle with the barrels sideways but, lo and behold, yours are correctly arranged. ;-)

Congratulations @flyfishdoc. Perhaps you should change your handle from Flyfishdoc to DRdoc as in double rifle doc!! ;)

I am quite sure you will enjoy it. If you need a reloading data for 450/400 PM me.

Regards,

yhc

I have plenty of factory ammo if you are in Alaska. Brass, too, that I can ship out of state but ammo is too expensive to ship out.

Hi Susan

I've rejoined Ah after a year break. Jerome has helped me re: set up my signature and banner. In my absence, I see there's a new resources page. How do I go about building a page and adding client reviews to it. I see a lot of other outfitters have got a text section, followed by pics and videos, and lastly some reviews. I'd like to do something similar.

Thanks for your help

Yes, I am interested in some A Frames to load, if they are the 300 grain or other that will work for Cape Buff. I need enough to work up a load and sight in, then carry over there
