  1. Well the posting states pointing dogs range. Hunting with Flushing dogs is a whole different type of hunting.
  2. I like my dogs to hunt no more than in a 200 yard arc from side to side. Never behind me, checking back from time to time. My dogs will hold birds until I get to them but I am not as fast as I once was and I don't enjoy racing to get to my dogs at further distances. i don't like dogs that hang out close and wont own one.

  4. I am selling my OWENS 2 dog aluminum dog box with top storage. I purchased this new and is still in great condition. It fits perfectly in a Tacoma and fits right up against the cab. I used it to transport my GSP’s as well as my English pointers. The only reason I am selling is because a shoulder injury I have a hard time taking in and out when I need to use my full bed. I need to go to single plastic dog boxes. The measurement is 37” x 29 1/2” x 22 1/2”. $625.00 firm pick up in Tucson. PM me or text Five Two zero 975-0830. I will respond in the order I receive message or the first person who says I will take it.

    Im guessing you have a 8x57 JS chambered rifle. If a round chambers I bet you have the correct ammo. I would just slug it to be sure. ( an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure. Good luck looks like a fun rifle.

    If you were in Tucson I would be happy to make a chamber casting and slug the barrel. I can walk you through slugging the barrel. Just use a lead cast bullet larger than the rifle bore. Use a little lubricant and a short wood dowel to start the slug into the bore, and use the long dowel to tap the slug through the bore. I use a set of dial calipers to measure the slug. You can then determine the slug diameter.

    The best and safest way to determine what cartridge it takes is to do a chamber cast. I also always slug the barrel. Not hard to do and actually kind of neat to learn to do this. It very well may be 8x57. I copied this for information. This better details the differences. i recently camber cast and slugged the barrel of a friends rifle, a Combination German rifle. His rifle was actually another cartridge of 8x57. I was determined to be a 8x57 JR . A rimmed cartridge. 8x57JS, the "J-bore", was the original chambering for the Mauser. It had a bullet diameter of .318 inches and was a round nose deisgn. The 8x57IS, referred to as the "S-bore" was the later chambering with a new spitzer bullet with a diameter of .323 inches. Early rifles chambered for the J-bore and subsequently modified to fire the larger S-bore were stamped with a "S" on the receiver to indicate the change.
