Thanks for the add. I saw a thread on the .303 and several contributors mentioned they wished for double rifle in .303 British. Attached are pictures of mine by way of introduction. 1934. Still tight. Heading to Africa next year for some plains game, its going with me.

Welcome to AH mate.that little double is gorgeous. What brand is it.
I think you made a mistake posting it tho a lot of members will be drooling over it and offers to try it out will be numerous.
If you want me to try it on Australian game I would be more than happy to do it for you.
What weight projectiles is it regulated for.

Its a Simpson. 174grain. I'm lucky in that 180s work as well as the sights allow. I've shot 174s and I cant see at difference to 75 yards. It does well enough with 150s. I'm working up 215s. And will see what they do. It is my least temperamental double ive owned. If I make it to your beautiful country will let you throw some lead. Thanks for the compliment. I'm kinda partial to the rifle. Like they say, your double rifle is your best friend. Lol

Welcome to the AH community Mike. From the looks of your gun of choice, you are going to fit in just dandy.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
