Roy,

While this is technically sleeving, it follows Pieper's monobloc patent. Of course you don't end up with a monobloc... The advantage, as you have recognized, is increased strength in the chamber area. Like your Greener, the Husqvarna has a greener cross bolt, which gives me some comfort.

Rich and I went round for weeks about the cartridge. I finally decided after a long call to IMR powders. I use 3031 in other guns, so I always have a supply around.

The final load develops a bit more pressure than the 45-70 trapdoor load, but does not have the recoil of an all out 45-70 load. It is very close to the handloads I use in my 45-70 Marlin lever action. So in effect, when I load for 1, I can use the loads in either gun. Something I like.

The 45-70 is easy to reload here. Components are plentiful and inexpensive. The large caliber makes for a great boar gun. Solid hit to the lungs and they drop. In a couple of years, I will have enough points for a Wisconsin black bear license. The double gun will get a work out on that hunt.

Try Del Whitman, 231.275.0140. Del did double rifle barrel regulation at Rigby, in California when he worked there and has done at least one set of barrels I know of, for a Lefever action, in 45-70.
