.405 double

Charles S. had his first double made for him in caliber .405 Winchester. Teddy Roosevelt's "lion medicine" in the model 1895 lever action was an ideal big game rifle in the early 1900s and the cartridge still is today with a 300-grain bullet at 2200 fps. Many of the Winchester cartridges, both black powder and smokeless, are well suited for double rifles and many have indeed been chambered in vintage English and Scottish double rifles: .405, .35, .348, .50-95, .50-110 as well as .44-40 and .30-30, and the .22 Savage Hi Power. Stunning wood on Charles' rifle.
