Woodleigh reloading manual?

Not any 460s, but I have the 425 and 525. White tail deer go down like they're pole axed. And there's very little extraneous tissue damage. I can practically eat right to the hole.

Where I hunt, shooting distances are rarely further than 50 yards, and never further than 100 (if even that). My 6.5x55 Tikka and my 45-70 are my go-to rifles for that environment. Out of the 6.5, I shoot Woodleigh 160s at a touch under 2400 fps. At 40 or 50 yards, that'll turn a deer's heart to jelly, but ruins very little meat otherwise.

Yes, the 6.5x55 have been the standard here for over 100 years and together with the 45-70 it makes an excellent combo.

Do you get any lead in the barrel?
 
No lead fouling in my barrel.
 
Hello, I'm looking for reloading data for my 400 Jeffrey (450/400 3"). I do have some reloading books, but never had a look into the Woodleigh book. Does this book has any information about this caliber?

I think you should be able to download a simple scanner app if your phone allows.

The app is easy to you I had it on a work phone

Here's the data from African Dangerous Game Cartridges. I have misplaced my Woodleigh Manual, lol. Now I have another item I need to track down tomorrow.

Since someone already provided you with the Woodleigh data, here's some Hornady data.

Midway has DGX in stock. Haven't read back through the whole thread, so I don't know if you know, Woodleigh factory burned down a couple years ago. They are rebuilding, the owner says they should have some bullets to ship by the end of this year.

Is this rifle sold? If not what is the weight of it and do you know if there is enough difference in diameter between the 35W and the 9.3 to allow for a rebore to a 9.3x62 which is what I am after?
Thanks,
Gary (Just down the road in Springfield)

Forgive me if this is the incorrect area, I signed up to this forum just now because I wanted to be on the list to purchase a copy of your autobiography. Please feel free to pass my information along to whomever is selling. Thank you so much. I look forward to it!
I like the Tillie in my picture. They are supposed to fit loose (2 fingers inside hat band), have mesh for cooling, and hold their shape after washing.
