Hi SKB,

When I saw the picture of your Moore 2-groove I thought it might be the same rifle as pictured in C.W. Thurlow Craigs 1952 book Shooters Delight.
Now you have give the bore measurements it clearly isnt as his measured .375 bore and .432 grooves, with a two cavity mould throwing an 88 grain belted ball and a conical winged bullet.
He wrote that it worked well on hill rabbits in Wales.
It is illustrated in his book, but I have only just registered with the forum and dont yet know how to post the image.
I could email a photo of the page if you like.
Happy New Year Everyone!

It is a Henry Clarke of Leicester, England in 7X57R. It is a rifle you don't have to go on a safari to use. It is identical to the 7X57 ballistically, it just has a rimmed case for use in the double barrel. With the small bore size, it is heavy at 10 pounds...

Hey all, first off Happy New Years to you and yours! Today is my son Will's last day at home, he has to head back to Ft Drum tomorrow. So we went on a hunt before he leaves. It was a very good day! We both limited in about 2 hours. Will made a real nice shot and I was lucky to get a double. Addie our 22 month old did an exceptional job of tracking a wing shot bird. She really worked well today, very happy with her. It was a beautiful day and even better for me to be out with my first born son!

Addie with the days bag!



Will, he was using his 16ga Sauer Royal



I used my 12ga Huberitus Buhag



Only two more days and the seasons over.

Best,

Greg

Thanks Mike, I sure will. Very proud of Will, he made SSG (E6) in 3 years.

Thanks again!

We are running out of days, but not birds. Gus thinks this picture is ridiculous. He is probably right, but we are both having fun.

Maybe a few more yet to go.
