What’s New


“What’s New” is what is newly available- your guide to Doc’s newest stuff : news, guns, brags, stories, banter, ideas, ramblings, inventions- see below. 



                                                         WHITERIFLES.COM

Whiterifles.com  has apparently shut down.  I nor any one else can find  owner Steve Brown, last I heard he was breifly home from China.  The Whiterifles website is gone from the web. This means the bullets, nipple-breechplugs, 209 conversion kits, etc. are no longer available. 

                                                  NOW THE GOOD NEWS

Good quality Doc-designed slip fit bullets are available from No Excuses Bullets on the net at excellent prices.  The old Super-sabots and bullets that Doc designed are all gone BUT Harvester makes a great ribbed sabot,  I like it even better than the one I designed. They make it in both 45 and 50 caliber, both fit  White  brand  rifles just fine.  I am in the throes of designing a 40 caliber 360 grain bullet for their 45 caliber  sabot  and a 45 caliber 430 grain bullet for 50 caliber rifles, (and  am negociating with a bullet maker  to make and sell  them.)  I have  also  found  a bullet mold maker who can cut molds for White bullets  so you can cast your own. In the meantime, the  White  brand old stored  360 grain 45 caliber bullets I have for sale (see ‘on sale’  near bottom of page)  in a 50 caliber Harvester sabot  is a great combination for a 504 caliber rifle. I hope to cut a deal with Harvester so I  can  have the sabots on hand  as well as the bullets.   I have also  found  a CNC shop that can maufacture 209 kits and hope to have them available soon, well- at least sometime.  That shop will also make small parts for new Whitetail rifles, including nipple-breechplugs.  Watch for more news as it happens.. Good shooting! DOC

NEW IGNITION SYSTEM- 2012
Readers of this site are aware of Doc’s innovative use of the 32 S&W cartridge case as a primer in closed breech muzzleloaders. Doc’s ThunderBolt is one of those that works quite well with it. Doc took the concept to Africa in 2005, using a Christensen Carbon-barreled ThunderBolt with 336 primer ( as he called the 32 S&W system. the case is 0.336 ” in diameter) with a modest charge 35 grains of 5744 smokeless powder to take 7 animals in 9 shots, two of the shots superfluous. The 336 system never went anywhere commecially as the White company collapsed at about the same time, no new rifles being produced after 2005. Doc has now extended the 336 system to other competing models, principally by modifying H&R and other brand break-open single-shot shotguns, sleeving the breech with a White barrel and adding a 336 breechplug, White style sights, ferrules and ramrod. The system functions nicely with all replacement powders, including BlackHorn 209, and is as accurate as any other
White rifle using recommended saboted bullets.

A modern H&R break-open single shot shotgun modified with a White barrel and 336 primer system.

Now Doc has designed a new bolt action rifle, using 1895 Mauser actions, with a new breechplug featuring the Colt 45 Auto case as a primer. This case fits the Mauser bolt face and extracts just like any cartridge. The internals of the breechplug are also different, with the case headspacing on the internal web of the 45 Auto case, rather than the nose of the case as is usual, thus enhancing ignition with modern hard to ignite powders. Doc plans to offer such rifles on a limited one at a time basis. Watch ‘Custom Modern’ for them to appear.

DOC’S EMPHASIS-2009

It must be obvious by now that Doc has changed his emphasis from the White Systems- WhiteRifles line of in-line muzzleloaders to custom traditional percussion and flintlock guns, which is where he started 60 years ago. The White companies have been financial failures for the most part, with great inventions, terrific developement, and innovative products with superb ergonomics and quality. But the management could never rise to the quality of the product. In the end, teaching a new doctrine was just too expensive. The current company, WhiteRifles, is a small remnant of what went before. Parts and bullets are still available, but there hasn’t been a new design, let alone a new rifle, produced for over ten years.

If you want to see what Doc does best, at present, look under ‘custom traditional‘ found top of page. If you want top see what Doc used to do, look up the old White Systems, also listed top of page: G-Series rifles- the Whitetail, M97. The GS-series-the Lightning, The BG shotgun-the Tominator, The S-series- the Super-91, Super-91-ll, M98 and Thunderbolt.

WHITE RIFLES TEAM WINS THE 2006 MANUFACTURER’S MATCH

That’s me, Doc White, on the left, then Rusty Cottrell, Lowell Crane, Merle Crane, David ones and Steven Dick. The four with the rifles were the shooters, I got to cheer, while Steve managed the spotting scope and was handy in case we needed him as an alternate shooter. David Jones was the #1 individual shooter, Rusty was #2. The Crane brothers were # 6 & 7. Obviously, all are fine shots. The White team established a new record for the match, shooting 1132- 14X, eclipsing the old record of 1101-8X set in 2005 by the Knight team. David Jones also shot a new individual record for the match, shooting a 291-3X. He missed 9 points out of 300. WOW! It is hard for me to express how proud I am of this team of shooters. Their dedication to the task was exemplary. No one will ever know how many hours of practice it took to do this, let alone the mind control and discipline. They have my hearty thanks, little reward for their mighty accomplishment.The match was discontinued after White cleaned everyone’s clock. I guess we get to keep the trophy. See ‘Designing for Accuracy‘  in ‘Doc’s Books“, for a look at the technology behind the DOC-designed rifles , bullets and loads.
