    Double Rifles.

    Anybody here shoot a double rifle, and if so what calibre and how long have you owned and shot it?

    Interested because I've had a .375 for about 2 months be interesting to hear about other doubles.

    Hi.
    My first ever stalking rifle was a Geyger[Berlin.] on a Merkel action which I bought in 1961.
    It was in 7x65R calibre[Rather similar to a rimmed .270 in some respects.]
    It was an O/U which was regulated for the 11.2 GRAM or 173 Grain bullet.
    I shot Chamois,Roe, Fallow ,Reds,Sika and Muntjac with it over the years.
    I sold it to a famous GUN FIRM for nearly 2500 pounds profit a few years ago.[Possibly the only time in my lifetime when I thus succeeded!!!]

    dont buy a 375 for a double in the belted form, they never eject properly . buy a 375 in its flanged format

    Get hold of a copy of Craig Boddington's safari rifles - very good on double rifles nad most rifle shots particularly those after dangerous game fall inot the category of either Double Rifle owner, or want to be one. I am in the latter category.

    Stag - your over and under double on a merkel action sounded a lovely rifle - why did you sell it??? How accurate was it - obviously if you were happy shooting chamois it must have been accurate enough.

    I looked at a Merkel the other day - 16 bore over 7x65R with claw mounts and 8x56 scope, with a set of 16 bore barrels as well. In one case you had everything you ever required in terms of a hunting piece.

    But I do like having different guns for different purposes.

    Any body looked at the Finn Classic.

    Fill in the gaps, please.
