Shooting the British Double Rifle by Graeme Wright AUCTION
      #367199 - 26/06/22 09:19 PM



"Shooting the British Double Rifle" by Graeme Wright 3rd Edition 2009 - AUCTION started

Auction started, will run for about a week. Please bid on this thread. The book may be auctioned concurrently elsewhere at the same time. I may take bids from elsewhere and will occasionally post here updates.

Starting bid US$500

The finishing date will be announced later. Bid early. I may close the auction early if the price is sufficient.
Bids are binding.
The seller reserves the right to withdraw the item.

The Third Edition is sold out across the world, a small number, two maybe three are available from NitroExpress.com . One is offered in this auction..

NitroExpress.com was the first seller of the Third Edition when it was first released and about 150 copies sold. The first batch of a hundred at discounted subsidised international postage. I made bugger all profit!

This is a fund raising effort to support the NE Forums and Site. Which you all enjoy.

This represents an opportunity to acquire a copy very difficult to otherwise acquire. I've had numerous enquiries over the last year. The book represents a pre-eminent resource on reloading and shooting the British double rifle and handloading for similar.

Rude forum or Facebook interference with the auction will be strictly policed. No random comments, or offers to sell second hand, or cheaper somewhere else. Members interfering will be blocked or deleted from any or all platforms.

When the auction closes, postage will be calculated and messaged and emailed to the winning bidder. Payment required within five working days. Bids will be regarded as binding. Payment to the NE bank account in full. Any fees and postage including mandatory insurance at the winning bidders responsibility.

The auction is for the first copy. Additional copies (1 or 2) might be offered to other bidders as decided by NE. Some may be offered for auction elsewhere eg the collector market.

Thanks.


Hardover. 3rd Edition, published 2009. 288 pages. 18x27cm.

Intro from jacket cover:
This book will appeal to a variety of firearm enthusiasts. Firstly, of course, are those who own or use double rifles. However shooters with just an interest in double rifles (loads, ballistics and how they work) will also find this book invaluable.

In this Revised Third Edition, the load data section has been greatly expanded, giving load data for most nitro double rifle cartridges. The pressure tests have also been expanded and all chapters updated. The chapter on paradox guns now also includes information on how they perform as shotguns.

Secondly, shooters interested in loading large cartridges in both smokeless and black powder form will benefit from this reference. Those loading large British cartridges even for single shot or magazine rifles will find it of particular interest as well.

Thirdly, those interested in internal ballistics will find the pressure tests done at the Birmingham Proof House and the Kynamco factory particularly valuable.

Lastly, this reference book contains reference information. There are dimensional tables, lists of component suppliers, extracts from old cartridge catalogues, powder burning rate chart and club shooting events and rules.

John,
This is an excellent book; well researched and well written. I enjoyed reading it. I refer to it for reloading vintage Brit cartridges, particularly BPE but also early NE that are not covered by modern manuals. This is a must have boiok for anyone that likes vintage Brit sporting rifles.

Thanks for the reply.

The auction starting price may seem high but compared to recent sales $700, $1200, $2825 not really. The only other copy for sale inhave found on the internet, on eBay is priced for $8500!


Guys on here are sometimes buying rifles for $50,000 several times a year, or for a multiple of that several times.

This book is an essential item in a double rifle bookshelf. If the gun owner is not just a collector or exclusively uses $500 boxes of factory cartridges. If available in the first place.

I will be looking to list these copies on eBay and/or Amazon or similar.

Listed them first here for members benefit.

PS This forum or post has each post requiring authorisation. Just worked that out. I will approve daily any relevant posts especially bids. At least two persons have expressed interest.

It is not an unfounded rumour that this copy of the "Shooting the British Double Rifle" Third edition, may be the only first sale copy for sale anywhere in the world!

Perfect unused condition.
