Update August 29, 2014

Good day, all
Just returned from a good caribou hunt with the .450-400 in the high arctic. No grizzly but the highpoint was returning to camp the first day with a caribou head and antlers and seeing a big black wolf sitting and looking at the camp from a hill across the small river where we set up camp on a sand bar.

The Double Rifle Primer is at the printers with a shipping date for September 15. I expect sometime in October to have the books in hand.  The contents are as follows:

The book is 184 pages, hard bound, dust jacket, thick and glossy paper.
Price is 70$, with 15$ USPS priority shipping to US address, including insurance and tracking number.
However, if three copies are sent to the same address in the US I will cover the postage costs.
Also, if three copies of any of my books are ordered I will pay the postage to the US address.
How's that?

I will update in a month or so with the book's progress and I also will post information on the Accurate Reloading forum.
In closing, here are a couple of photos of my caribou. Thanks to all of you for looking at my site and your emails. Please send in pics of your double rifles and/or  game taken with them and I will post on the appropriate sections.
Cheers,
Cal
