    Double rifle barrel profiles?

    Calling all forum double rifle owners

    I have finished my mono block for a 45-70 double rifle
    And ready to get on to the barrels
    But I don't have any hard data to base the barrel profiles on !

    I'm planning on about 24" / 600mm long barrels
    It's 1"/ 25mm diameter at the end of the mono block

    Does anyone have a double rifle that they could measure the barrel diameters at multiple points along their lengths to give me an idea where I'm going?

    Or know of a web site with anything like this ?

    Cheers

    You'll want the lightest ones you can. Equal taper, regulation is done when you lay the mid ribs, wire ties and wedges, then sweated/soldered together.
    I think HollandHolland had a reasonable vid up on youtube.
