    Boss Double in 5.6x50R and a Battery of nine Purdeys

    Now Bewsher is busy converting his single shot handi rifle to .222, I think this looks a much nicer 22 cf

    and the same owner seems to have commissioned Purdeys to build him a whole set of double guns from 600 Nitro downwards.

    1. Donate to the appropriate political party (though probably need nearer 10mil for that to work).

    2. Move to the US.

    I love the idea of a small/medium calibre double. I wonder if anyone's ever made something like a .222 X .308? That would be rather handy!

    Mungo - on your last point it's called a Bergstutzen and plenty have been made in .222, 22 hornet or 5.6x50r over 7x65r etc. most over and under double rifle, combinations can be had like this.

    So now that you're a cigar chomping plutocrat, you can commission one?

    Yes I will think on it, with a decent Port as well.

    On a trip to Australia a few years ago I saw what I thought was a S/S double .410 it turned out to be a very nice .22 Hornet complete with claw mounts and scope not having the large wad of cash needed it stayed
    on the rack
