The specifications on this rifle are similar to the other Wesson style Boxlock rifles below, what sets it apart it the barrel. This rifle has a .500" Bore, .512" Groove, 1:24 twist, 28 inch barrel. In combination with the Swaging/Pre-rifling die it makes for a very accurate Rifle that can take a variety of cast bullets or allows the option of using premium jacketed or solid bullets. The Concept isn't new it is a modern variation of the Whitworth Bullet, where theBullet is rifled to match the barrel allowing for a precise mechanical fit at full groove diameter. The fast twist also allows for the use of standard size sabots opening up even more options in the .458 bullet diameter in both cast and premium jacketed and solid bullets.
