Like any other fish or game, the quailty of the enviroment they are taken from greatly effects the final product. Carp out of cool clean water of good. If it’s running water, so much the better. Carp and no other fish for that matter, DO NOT have a ‘mud line’. That red strip on the side is sensory and very blood rich. Cut it out or soak it out, either works. We always tried to get our carp for smoking before mid June. ken 😉kenhumpParticipantFebruary 15, 2009 at 5:24 pmPost count: 12770
Rose bush food. Makes as much sense as someone steals your car and uses it as a get-away
car from bank robbery, and you are charged as an accessory. I’ve watched tha show a couple
times and they aren’t rocket scientists. Not hard to break in if you know nobody is home.
There is a reason they are EX thieves. 😉kenhumpParticipantFebruary 15, 2009 at 4:33 amPost count: 12770
Are we talking a new engine, or a factory rebuilt or a local rebuilt? We don’t know. In any case even the folks that will tell you you don’t ‘need a break in, will also tell you drive sane, change the oil often and most will tell not to use synthetic oil for the first couple oil changes, right? That is an engine break in. Yes I had new vehicles and
I’ve done some rebuilds along the way. I also have sold auto parts, including crate’ engines. Other questions are out there. Is it stick or automatic? Was it a short block or long block swap?. We did a transmission swap on an Explorer just before Christmas and had a similar problem that turned out to be a pinched vacuum line.kenhumpParticipantFebruary 15, 2009 at 4:05 amPost count: 12770kenhumpParticipantFebruary 14, 2009 at 4:56 amPost count: 12770kenhumpParticipantFebruary 14, 2009 at 4:42 amPost count: 12770kenhumpParticipantFebruary 14, 2009 at 4:20 amPost count: 12770
If I were never planning to set foot outside the lower 48, I’d vote Rem 7mm mag.
If I were looking for coverage for all of North America, the .338 would get the nod.
About 25 years ago I dressed a 300+ pound brown in NW Washington state. Killed absolutely
dead at around 100yds I believe with a .338 mag. Hit the left shoulder socket quartering
toward the right rear at about a 45 degree angle. Bullet expanded inside the socket
and turned the heart and part of the right lung to mush. The young man the shot it said ,
“it just fell over”. It was Fall and the bear was heavy with fat. Impressive kill.kenhumpParticipantFebruary 14, 2009 at 1:27 amPost count: 12770kenhumpParticipantFebruary 13, 2009 at 11:53 pmPost count: 12770kenhumpParticipantFebruary 13, 2009 at 10:16 pmPost count: 12770
Wade, it’s been a long time and I was shooting factory, but I remember there was about 12 or 14″ difference at 200 yds 300 vs 405 in drop. If you are going to be hunting elk inside 150yards, maybe the heavier slug, but out past 150 I’d stay with the ballistics of the lighter faster slug. Please let us know how the bench loads work out. 😉kenhumpParticipantFebruary 13, 2009 at 8:28 pmPost count: 12770kenhumpParticipantFebruary 13, 2009 at 6:42 pmPost count: 12770
Danny is correct. I spent 13 months on steroids as part of a medical treatment. Some pretty healthy dosages. I put up with mood swings, yes they are very real. Weight gain, about 30 pounds of bulk that won’t go away. Like anything else, they can be abused or misused. Now performance enhancement is a different kettle of fish. If there are rules, they should be enforced equally. 😉
