Re: Second barrel on grouse The Baron 01/21/22 02:11 AM
Not sure how it works with a dog (I’ve never had a chance to hunt grouse over a dog), but I recall several times where a grouse was flushed, one shot fired, then a second grouse flushed (I learned not to break my gun open too quickly if my second barrel was unfired).

I also recall, on at least one occasion, firing my right barrel too early and my left barrel too late. In those cases, I just knew if I had a middle barrel I would have connected. 😆

Re: WTB Quality Single Ted Schefelbein 01/21/22 01:52 AM
Those English singles seem to be a bunch of money, for what they are. I would guess if you buy a good one, you better like it, they aren’t in high demand. Nothing in the world wrong with one, well, excepting the fact they are ONE SHOT.

I use my Companion for snow shoe grouse hunting. It has a 30” vent rib barrel, with 47 luscious points of choke. The long tube makes it a fair interpretation of a balance poke, and all the choke is irrelevant, because I’ve never gotten a shot at a Grouse while on snowshoes. I have had a Grouse blast out of the snow from between the tips of my snowshoes, but it took a minute or three to get my composure back, and figure out what the hell had just happened. So, choke is neither here nor there.

I haven’t been lately, and snowshoes worked a lot better before I was 200 lbs.

Good luck.

Best,
Ted

Re: Point of impact patterning question Stanton Hillis 01/20/22 10:32 PM
I agree 100%. Said another way, if you shoot at a bird going dead straight away do you cover it with the bead, or do you hold the bead just barely under it? Pattern the same way.

Re: Duck hunting with your classic side by side? Carl46 01/20/22 08:12 PM
My Marine uncle told me that the practice during winter campaigns in Korea was to urinate on frozen Garands and BARs when they were too frozen to fire. Would probably work on an A5 as well.
One more reason to clean guns after the hunt.

Husqvarna 246 with Bretelle Automatique fallschirmjaeger 01/20/22 01:54 PM
I recently purchased this Husqvarna 246. It's one of the rarer Husqvarna rifles and it's a 9.3x62. The odd thing about this rifle is the addition of a Bretelle Automatique mechanism in the stock similar to the Manufrance made shotguns. It appears that the the original sling swivel hole was filled, so I doubt this stock was a custom job and I'd guess by the checkering style and pattern the stock was an original factory Husqvarna stock. I just wondered if anyone had any insight. I'm sure it was just a gunsmith addition someone wanted, but it's something you don't see every day on a rifle. The gun came out of Sweden.

Re: Reboring fixed chokes Stanton Hillis 01/20/22 11:49 AM
I second Dean for choke work, and helping with regulation issues. Willingness to take time to discuss the work being requested goes a long way with me, and he is the best at that I've ever dealt with. I sent him a 20 ga. double that I had determined had regulation issues. It cross-fired badly with 7/8 oz. loads, to the tune of 8" each way at 25 yards. He said, in phone conversation, that he would do what he could to move the patterns for me. When he called back with the verdict he said that all the gun needed to regulate perfectly was to use 1 ounce loads at about 1150 - 1175 fps. He could have modified the muzzle interior profiles to try to move the patterns for me with the lighter loads, and I'd never have known the difference. But, Dean is an honest man and felt I would be happier with using the one ounce loads. I am.

He also opened the chokes on it, and lengthened the chambers to 2 3/4 inches. Perfect work, and no change in regulation from the choke "relieving" done.

Color me a big fan of Dean Harris.

They seem to work fine in any bore configuration I've tried, remember, a good double 450 is a 3-4" grouper at 100 yards. Plenty good for hunting.

Thanks Mike for your valued response.

Re: A Cameleopard from E. M. Reilly Argo44 01/18/22 09:43 PM
Out of Africa with a 10 day break for omicron quarantine: I took another look at this interesting box-lock. Never seen another Reilly with that action. Whether Reilly made any box-lock actions or bought them from others (Birmingham) as was the case nearly universally with London gunmakers cannot be determined.

However, the gun is serial numbered. According to the research from the Reilly line, that indicates Reilly built the gun, whether or not he used outsourced actions/parts. Will continue to look through the 600 Reilly's I have photographs of to try to learn more but again it's unique so far. Very interesting.
