    Wood Stove Questions- UL/Backpacking

    I have a SEEK OUTSIDE 4 man with a large stove. Seek outside shelters have a storm flap on the zippers so when the door is zipped shut the velcro seals the door, this keeps your zippers from freezing closed, water from leaking into the shelter unlike its competition and keeps the wind out, they also have two zippered doors. They have a sod skirt around the shelter so you can place rocks or soil on it to seal the shelter from the elements. Their tipis have loops in the shelter to run para cord through for a clothes line. As with all tipis if they state 4, 6 or 8 man with a stove, wood, packs rifles etc. you need to cut the occupancy in half. When backpacking I think my 4 man is AWESOME by myself. I do believe the shelter with the stove is about 7 pounds all in which is light considering it can handle severe storms with ease. The stove will burn for a couple of hours and have coals for a couple more, since they are small they need to be stoked more then a full size stove but will keep the shelter about 70/80 degrees when its 5 degrees out and snowing. It is easy to cook on since it is flat and square, I dont bring a fuel stove when using the stove in the tipi. It is very sturdy, dosent leak smoke unless you forget to clean the spark arrester. As far as cylinder vs box stove I did a lot reading before buying my stove and the cylinder stove will warp leaving you with a small problem and you cant cook on them very easily. The stove and the shelter have proven very durable and I will never be without one again. As far as cons I havent found any, I am really thinking about buying an 8 or 12 man and getting rid of my wall tent. In the photo below I had the shelter up and a fire going in about 15 minutes.
  4. I always take an extra rifle on my hunts and have for a couple of decades. Its just a plain R 700 but I never leave home without it.

    The first rifle I bought for myself was a 280 rem. Good luck with your sale!

  13. What primers are you using? Steve told me to use magnum primers in my 280 AI with the 145 gr Hammer. I was able to get .4 just by shooting a ladder test, then picking the flat spot and loading up 6 rounds. I didnt get the velocity I was hoping for and will definitely try the standard primer next. Good luck on your hunt!

    12b west early hunt

    Well done and I bet that cold front really helped, the last time we hunted there it was really hot. I was in a tee shirt 90 % of the time. How about some stories?

    I recently had a couple of people state this pistol is over priced, below is a quote from APEX TACTICAL web site and find it very accurate. Once you replace the barrel and trigger these become a completely different firearm. If you bought all the parts and pistol it would cost you about 1000/1100 to put this pistol together (gunsmith). You will have to shoot one to ever believe a polymer gun shoots this well. "The stainless steel barrel features a 1:10” twist rate. The design increases accuracy performance making the M&P capable of shooting as small as a 1-inch grouping at 25 yards". The above is when using a rest.
