I'm still stuck on the BD14, on one hand it's the most practical gun around and on the other it's the most impractical gun around.

It's really confusing.
I can honestly say it is the best gun I have purchased in my life.
And that's a big call.
Excluding my Merkel side lock shotgun...

Taking aside the silly restrictions about 3 barrel guns the positives are you always have the right gun for the job at hand, it will handle any game.
But the downside I guess is it's 3 single shot guns in one, it's not perfect as any of them but it does the job and it is a little bulky, reloading might be a little confusing as there are 3 rounds to choose from.

But it would definitely be the top choice for a one gun hunter, or the man that likes to be ready for any game animinal.

Their is nothing bulky about a BD14, the action is extremely slim. The overall gun is very compact, trim and handles well at only 3.2kg.
It really is a big step forward for drillings in terms of dimensions and handling. It does not feel any different to handling a light bolt action single barrel rifle actually.

What do you all reckon with this regulation, good enough?
Winds were blowing left to right at 25klm per hour.

The 7X65R is doing 2650 fps with 175 grain Woodleigh PPSN projectiles. It will put the first two shot into almost one hole about 4cm above aiming point. Then it shoots any further shots about 4cm lower and 2cm left until the barrel "completely " cools.

The 22 Hornet shoots to this point of impact all day long.
I am getting about 2880 fps with 13.2 grains of Lilgun and Hornady 35 grain Vmax projectiles and RWS cases.
Thanks for the load Dom.

Shooting pretty good, but do you believe the warm barrel is affecting accuracy?? :handgestures-thumbup:

Yeah I think it is Theo, the barrels are very thin, thinner than the R8.
But 2 shots is enough for most situations.
But it is very accurate for the first two shots.
