Marrakai,

Thanks for the repost. I've been buying heads from my English gunsmith when I pass through London as his mold-maker is very slow producing the mold for my Paradox. Believe I'll go ahead and get one of CBE's products.

Now, don't know where folks have gotten the mistaken idea that the H&H round is .740. It is not. It will be .735 rpt .735 as I understand it, subject to correction. I'll pass through London on the way to Kuwait 27 Jan and ask again, and those who are at SCI should check there, but my recollection is that they plan a .735 Fosbery projectile. For my rifle that would give two three thou of swaging down before meeting the rifling (bore is .740 and groove diameter .733 or so).

Regards, Tim

Marrakai-

Thanks for leaving a link to the catalog of bullet moulds, I'm intrigued. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to reach a website.
It might be my machine or my connection, but I get error notes when I -click- the link you left in your posting.
Are you sure it works?

thanks

--John

Sorry guys, looks like CBE has moved!
I'll CAST about for the new location and post it here.
Again, apologies.

David:
Thanks for the g'day. My Paradox project is on hold, again! (...or still!!). I badly injured my bank-account last year when the opportunity to acquire a .470 double rifle leapt out and bit me on the bum! details
I too keenly await more Paradox publications!

Tim:
Right, .735 makes a lot more sense. Just going by Max's post. As far as projectiles go, it is easier to cast oversize and size down, but H&H will be supplying loaded cartridges so they would have to get it right first time!

Glad you guys are making good progress and having fun: I promise to catch up one day!

Perhaps if I wait long enough, my mate will sell me his Holloway. It has P.Orr & Son on the rib, so would be particularly at home in my collection!

Tony,

That looks like a beautiful rifle, very nice wood. Best of luck with it. I enjoyed the story.

Best regards,
David

Can't find the CBE catalogue on line. I have sent an e-mail enquiry off to Jim, no reply as yet.

Meanwhile, he has a one-pager up with contact details: http://www.users.bigpond.com/JIM.CBE.htm

Jaz,

The barrel flat on my H&H paradox is marked cordite 750 bullet MA nitroproof. The gun weighs 8.1 pounds. Also, I have a copy of the ledger from H&H that shows the gun was completed 2-28-10.The gun was sent back to H&H in 1912 to have an extra set of 32 inch barrels fitted. This set of barrels have 3 inch chambers and are magnum proofed. Are you sure your gun was built in 1910?

Regards,

Max

OK, Jim wasn't aware of the problem with the ammodump link. He has most of the catalogue pages up at: http://www.castbulletengineering.bigpondhosting.com.au but at the moment that URL doesn't seem to be working either. Perhaps its a problem with the bigpond server. I can only suggest trying the addresses again later when hopefully the problem has been rectified.

MAx,

Many of the guns serial numbers do not exactly coorelate to the dates in textbooks, as they may have sat in "stock" for some time. If you have the ledger, this is the most accurate reference. At 8.1 lbs. your gun sure does sound like a magnum. With that extra set of barrels and all, you probably need to sell it as it takes up a bunch more space.....Anytime!!
