    Wayne, that makes sense. I only waited 5 minutes before carving it up.

    Yeah it was so wet when I took it out of the oven I figured it wasn’t done but I did have it covered with tinfoil when I was baking it up until the last 10 minutes. I baked it for 45 minutes at 325 to get the internal temp up to 160. When I was...

    I read most cook it to 145 degrees but for my first go around I wanted to make sure it was done. I read somewhere the USDA recommendation was 165 degrees for venison so I figured I’d try 160. I never really cooked with a thermometer before so it...

    I’m going to have the left overs for lunch or try some in a potsy pie maker over the coals with some Mozzarella cheese and some BBQ sauce. It was so soft I could cut it with my fork. I can’t believe how juicy it was. You can see all the juice that...

    Yep, i’m hoping to pump my Whelen up to 2600 to 2800 FPS with 200 grainers, PC, and GC with acceptable accuracy. I want to knock the snot out of whatever I hit with it.

    My third cousin and his wife I considered grandparents use to make it all the time in the late 70’s and early 80’s when I was a kid. They were big into coon hunting and always had a nonstop crockpot full every fall. It always had a pretty strong...

    I brined it in a mix of water, canning salt, and brown sugar fro about five hours and then took it out. I dried it off and did a dry rub. It was a mix of brown sugar, famous Dave’s rib rub, and some chili powder. I caked it on pretty thick. I then...

    Hope I get my 35 Whelen to shoot that tight. Do you know what shoot tight at 100 yards. I’d be trying 200 and 250 before I attempt an animal at that distance to make sure your groups hold up.

    I resize all my 5.56 brass in my RCBS 223 full length sizing dies so I can run them in my AR or my LTR bolt gun. After picking up a bunch of NATO range brass and wasting ALOT of time running them through my Dillion super swage twice and still having...

    I polished my chamber with a cotton bore mop and some mothers chrome polish. I put a rod in my cordless drill and spun it till it turned black from oxidation and then cleaned it with gun Oil afterwords to get ant residue out. I do this every once in...

    I’ll see if it is still the same POA later today. I checked it a day ago after I re zeroed it in with an artillery hold and my hand about a half foot in front of the trigger guard. It seems to be holding so far. I took out some feathers at about 35...

    It’s getting to that point. I just re sighted it in again about 20 min ago. It was an inch low again at 10 yards. I have it hitting in the exact same pellet hole again. If it shifts again the optic is coming off. It dose have fiber optic front and...

    I just ordered another 243 upper on Thursday for $318 from them. A lighter 20” version. I see their website is down. I take partial credit for it because I gave them a ton of crap Thursday after I asked them to weigh the claimed 4 &3/4 lb weight...

    Ruger will take care of you and fix or replace it. My 22 WMR shoots .3” 100 yard groups. Love the thing. When I got mine I had some light primer strikes. I removed the bolt assembly and found I packed with a black lithium grease looking substance....

    I just got a Ruger 1022 air rifle a few weeks ago complementary of a Ruger... long story. Itís a blast to shoot and very accurate but Iíd rather have a PCP thatís more powerful. I think the 1077 is similar if I remember.

    After lazer surgery I can see a country mile but close up is fuzzy. Open sights are not on my vocabulary any more. I still shoot my vaquero and self defense handguns with opens but I have to hold them as far out as possible from my eyes to try and...

    I picked up a Ruger 1022 air rifle. There’s no hold sensitivity on that baby. After getting frustrated this morning I grabbed that little Plinker and I can hit dead center on everything as fast as I pull the trigger. I put a little red dot on it the...

    I’ve experienced the same as most. Anywhere from a 4/8” plus difference at 100 yards. I never hardly shoot 50 yards unless it’s a 22lr rimfire.

    I’m going to keep a better eye on it to see which way it shifts and moves. I went out and tried it again this morning and it was shooting an inch low at 10 yards...shocking. When I was shooting I tried an artillery type hold up and down before and a...

    I thought it was the scope at first but when I rest my gun one way it shoots an inch one-way and when I rest it another way it’ll shoot an inch the other way. And then when I rest it a different way it shoots dead center. This is all without...
