    You do know that they have a unlimited warranty, right? Send it back and they will make it right.

    Good job! And yes, deer can be vocal on rare occasions. I've heard deer cry out or bleat at times and heard a buck grunt on my last trip.

    Crock pot for me. I cook them until tender, then it's a lot easier to get the meat off the bones.

    Better to kick yourself for passing on a gun than to kick yourself for buying it. Quite often a gun I REALLY like comes along after I pass on one that I only want to buy just because it's a good deal.

    My only experience pushing a hunting boolit that fast involved heat treating as well as a GC and a fairly hard alloy. It was a 35 Whelen and 2for some reason the rifle and the 230 gr boolit would not shoot consistently at a lower velocity. Very few...

    What rifle? It's hard to load a musket hot enough to work with plain base, might work in a really heavy barreled hawken type.

    Either the hammer or trigger is worn so it is not cocking all the way back. Have to take it apart and see what is not right. Not a difficult fix, but may require welding. Check the fit of everything on their pivots as well.

    It's very well suited for that purpose. It's also great for most medium bore, straight wall rifle cartridges so I've had more than a few load tests indicate 5744 was the best powder for that particular rifle & boolit. Only problem is it's quite...

    I'm not a fan of Tannerite but don't much care for hogs either. Looks like one was launched quite a distance by the blast. Must admit I enjoyed that little video.
