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.

Next instalment ...

First as posted elsewhere.

Boss .303 side by side round action.

The first image with scope. The second image of his newly made rifle with an older side by side also in .303.

Exquisite!





Enjoy.

An earlier Boss .470, photos also supplied. Not part of Ahmed's project from the earlier inventory. But enjoy anyway.

Absolutely eyepopping!

When I am re-incarnated as a prince I will have a similar project.
