Double Rifles
"The chap with a double rifle in his hands becomes for the moment a white hunter."
Jack O'Connor,
The Hunting Rifle 1970.

Double Rifles come in two basic configurations:

"Thee" Side by Side & The Over and Under

Like double barrel shotguns, the arguments run about the same - sxs vs. o/u. However, the advantages of a double rifle over a magazine/action rifle are well documented.
  • Two triggers, two barrels, two bullets - a must for dangerous game.
  • Two triggers, two barrels, two different bullets - a must for versatility.
  • Overall length is 5" shorter.
  • Lighter and Better Balance.
  • No Mechanical action to learn.
  • No Mechanical action to jam.
  • No Mechanical action to clean.
  • Safe loading and unloading.
  • Easy inspection of bores and barrels.
  • The double will continue to be life insurance on dangerous game - Jack O'Connor, 1970.

Optics on a Double Rifle?

In my opinion - YES!

Dangerous Game:

Enough Said!

Long Range

SXS - The argument against optics on a Side by Side is the so-called windage problem. Some recommend to only sight-in on one barrel - but this now reduces your very expensive double to a single shot rifle.

Let's examine the physics of a center line sight-in.
The rifle centers of a .470 caliber are about ½ to ¾" apart.
The rifle is regulated for the barrels to cross at 60 Meters (66 yds.).

The physics states that they will again be ¾" apart at... Answer: 120 meters

Your homework assignment is to calculate when the rifle will shoot 3 to 4" apart.
(You may use graph paper or join Members Only)

O/U - The argument against optics on an over and under rifle is the elevation difference.

That's right, but the difference can be used to your advantage. The lower barrel will give a larger midrange trajectory. A few sessions at the range will work out the unknowns.
