    Hook that is one very fine rifle. I'm like you in that if I had seen it, picked it up and ran my hand over the stock, and felt the velvety action, I'd owned it too. The scope and mount are especially nice. I also shot a 7 even point buck here on...

    Hook, I can't help you on a load for your wonderful little 6.5 Mannlicher, but I did want to congratulate you on a fine hunt and successfully taking a 7 point buck this past season. I am sure the 6.5 won't disappoint you with cast boolits either. I...

    smoked turkey replied to a thread 12ga double in Muzzleloading.
    I would go to the pattern board and shoot at a large piece of cardboard. I believe the standard distance is 40 yard (?). You need to check me on that. You want to see how many pellets are inside a 30" circle. I can't recall the required percentages...

    I can't speak with specifics on kitchen lighting but will make a general observation or two. First of all the existing lighting footprint (can light, incandescent, 4' florescent, etc) will be tons easier to retrofit than switching to another type of...

    smoked turkey replied to a thread 220/240 in shop in Our Town
    If by "shop" you mean a metal working shop which might include a welding circuit, Then you are talking probably 30 amp (#10 awg) and not too much extra cost for a future wire welder. A stick welder would be 40 or 50 amp which is an expensive circuit...

    At electrical supply houses you can purchase short seconds of wire with a three prong plug attached to one end. These are commonly called "whips". A good way is to hard wire a receptacle in the ceiling so that it is located between fixture ends....
