Exactly, it will be my new deer gun, I had a custom 20ga bore rifle built a few years ago, on a Simson 16ga action. Beautiful gun, but when i saw this old dame, I was smitten and decided the deer of MI deserve the honour of being harvested with this.

Great find! Looks like a bunch of fun coming your way. Do post reports of load development and of course that of the day you harvest your first MI whitetail with it.

Cheers!

My recollection is the intended dram weight charge for a quality bore rifle can be determined from the weight of the gun. I know I have seen a chart or table somewhere, maybe in Greener's book? Anyone recall seeing this?

Nice double, hopefully it is true and unchanged and still functions as new. Looks like an excellent candidate. Well Done.

I would start with 3 drams and go up form there, 1/2 dram at a time, with round balls.

I do not recall the text CommandCar speaks of. That does not mean it is not in the book, just that I do not recall it.
