calcal, I too know your pain! When I got my .58 zuo. I was given fualty info. for loading it! I was told 90 grains of powder.I was in the back of a pickup, leaning over the top! I used a 530 grain "buffloe bullet". When I touched it off, I found myself on the ground! I felt like I was the projectile! I was bruised from shoulder to chest! That was the only shot I took for two weeks!

Haven't visited this thread in a while.

Wyosmith....I saw the pictures of your stockwork. Very few presentations will make me stop and just stare. Yours is one of them.

That is simply the most gorgeous finish I have ever seen. I don't have the superlatives to adequately describe it. Thanks for sharing!

I am the first man in over 150 years to make a 2 bore hunting riflefor sure, and it's probable that I am the 1st man ever to make one. Thisdoesn't count wall guns or whaling guns.
The gun works/ Oregon barrel make two bores all the time.

One of my friends shot the big 5 with one.

Boomer, you should call Joe at Oregon Barrel and ask him who he
made the 1st one for.
Do that and you'll see I am right.
