From past experience should tighten groups by min 30 percent with handloads. Happy with factory load grouping on PURDEY and Boss guns. PURDEY 10 Bore choked barrels ( paradox ) had to be hand loded for testing. Hope to get 10 percent improvement on it.

Stunning project for sure.

I would like to hear particulars on the 10b Paradox. I have a bit of experience with an original.

Cptcurl could be 1 year before I can report on 10 bore. From start to finish this will be a 12.5 year project with boss 600 sxs extending it to 17.5 years.

Ahmed,

Patience is quite a virtue.

As nobody makes 10b Paradox ammunition at present, have you decided what ballistics to specify for regulation?

My 10b was built for the 8 dram load, which used a 2 ounce (875 grain) bullet in a 2-7/8" thin brass case, resulting in approximately 1500 fps. I don't think there was much change in ballistics when the round was adapted to nitro powder. I am buying cases from Track of the Wolf, but I see they don't export these. https://www.trackofthewolf.com/Categories/PartDetail.aspx/1210/11/SHOT-SHELL-10-2-78

I'll be interested as this project continues to develop.

One last question: Why would you have Purdey build this rather than Holland & Holland, the traditional Paradox maker?

Have a friend with a 12 bore rifle choked gun built by PURDEY 100 years ago. As I was wanting PURDEY guns and they agreed to build it I proceeded. It is built on a rifle action with a set of smooth bore barrels for goose shooting. I have a 12 bore holland shot gun with a set of paradox barrels and a holland rifle 375 short with a set of 28 bore paradox barrels. It may take a while and I will report on loads and regulation etc.

You certainly will be well-equipped!

I am anxious to see the 10b Purdey for sure.
