Not a drilling, but I have a nice Savage 2400/Valmet O/U in 12ga and 308. It would take monometal bullets and shoot healthy bizmuth loads. Health has me scaling down my guns and boats. I love the gun but can't see it getting hunted here anymore. I have several sets of scope mounts for it that work well as repeatable QDs. You could mount one low power for turkey and hogs and a higher power for deer etc. in open country. These are very accurate and have a floating barrel design that is only mildly heat sensitive.

So . . .

This is the problem that I am having.

1-Thank you guys for all of the help and/or crushing of my idea (LOL).

2-The Luftwaffe Drilling had one Shotgun barrel regulated to the rifle barrel and was suitable for slugs.

3-This would allow a second shot on hogs and a backup on turkeys (both with range limitations)

4-That gun may only exist in my dreams. Especially one that can use non-lead ammo.

5-I do not hunt birds or deer. So a nice grouse/deer gun is silly. I have owned all sorts of guns for decades. Chased pheasants ONCE and deer maybe five times. Despite plenty of tools for the purpose.

6-Reality can be a pain.

Sigh . . . . . ..

The Luftwaffe drilling is chambered for 65mm 12 ga ammo.

The Savage 2400/Valmets are strong guns for modern loads, and the rifle and shotgun barrels can be regulated to shoot the same place. The rifle barrel has windeage and elevation adjustments to get it shooting to the iron sights or where the shotgun barrel prints with slugs.

And the regulation system on Valmets that have it works darn good.

Off topic interjection: I owned 3 drillings along with some other similar grade stuff when I was very much younger. The notion of "basic drilling" brings to mind "basic Maserati". The two words don't go together except as opposites.

Thank you.

And thank you to all who helped with this thread. The support and information is greatly appreciated.

I have abandoned this fantasy/dream. My hunting options and needs do not match the benefits of a drilling.

Heartfelt thanks to all who helped me avoid an expensive (and possibly dangerous) mistake.
