    I think that B.O. is about to find out who really runs things. Oh, I think it will be coming out, however, the priority in the House right no is getting the ‘dole’ out and not gun grabs. 😕

    Work on the site is ongoing. We believe the problem is known, a fix is in the works. ken 😉

    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 😉

    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. 😉

    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.

    Have you ever broken in a new engine? 😕

    .338 mag or a Marlin 1894 lever in .41mag. :mrgreen:

    I would not recommend .308 for Alaskan brown ot white bears. Not saying you can’t stop one with .308, but I won’t be trying it. 😉

    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.

    If I were to guess, I’d say there has probably been more elk, moose and bear killed with 30.06 than any other round. That said if I were going after big browns, I’d definitely be in to something larger. What range will you be ‘zeroing’ at? 100 or 150yds?

    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. 😉

    I’d recommend trying some 300gr loads. Much better ballistics out in more open country.
    I’d think 520 would be like hunting with 20ga slugs. I use to shoot some 405gr I believe that were pretty good too.

    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. 😉
