New product announcement from Rigby. Definitely a good option for double rifles, though realistically I dont know how much of a difference is going to make to the lives of most of us here.

Sounds like a very useful cartridge for double rifles.

Their 1st new design in 20 years, a project bought to them by a super intelligent and experienced professor and spend 4 years in development and what do they do.
They take a 108 year old cartridge that's been their flagship round and put a rim on it. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Bugger me, that's like Bentley bringing out their new latest car.
An R type continental and they put some spinning rims on it. :lol:
