    Impact Wrench recommendations?

    I use Milwaukee as well, have not had a problem with any. Well I wore out a fuel drill, 1500+ holes through 1/4" steel overhead In a year. It still ran, but sounded funny. Warranty covered it. The high torque 1/2" is really nice. The m18 compressor works very good too, use it almost as much as my shop compressor.

    Just bought a Traeger and really?

    The blue smoke is what you want for cooking, not a billowing white. Cold smoke will generally be a little thicker, but should dissipate quickly. Blue smoke should almost be invisible, basically see the heat from the exhaust and maybe a wisp of smoke here and there. For cheese you have to remember to let it air out, and it won't be done for around two weeks. Cold smoke for around two hours, then remove it from the smoker. 24 hours wrapped in pink butcher paper in the fridge. Vacuum bag it and in around 10 days it will be ready. Also, use a mellow wood for cheese, or eggs, they both take on smoke well. For either I like pecan, but I am going to try pecan and cherry mix next time. I have found apple smoke to try to be bitter for cheese or eggs. That's why I like pecan. For meats, make sure that the thick white smoke is at a minimum. I preheat my wood with the top of my fire box before adding it. It helps it light up faster and keeps the thick smoke down. I will still get a minute or two here and there, but when it takes 10+ hours that isn't anything. Also, use mellower wood to start and figure out how much is needed. Especially mesquite, it can get too strong fast. I usually only use mesquite for a quick grill, or use just a little for a long smoke. Oh, make sure mesquite is well seasoned, if it has moisture at all, it will make anything bitter. This is for a stick burner, for the pellet grills and smokers, I am getting kind of partial to the competition blends of pellets. Seems to have a good balance of flavor.

    If it is a pellet smoker, most of the competition type blends are good because they are usually blended to give a good smoky, but not too much in the face type smoke.

    I will be using mesquite and oak. The mesquite for flavor and oak for coals. It is a stick burner though. Pellet grill will be for the sides.

    Check chimney too. Dust can cause fire there also.

    Let's tell old hunting stories

    Foxes will do goofy things too, but at least they aren't as stinky.

    6.5 prc reloads

    Have you chronoed? Daughters bergara cm likes it fairly slow rounds. It also took around 50 rounds to start settling. It shoots 3/8 or so and never adjusted bullet depth. Just .010 off lands with accubond long range. That is as close as I can come to a prc bergara. Try loading 3 to 5 loads at minimum and work up, 3 at each half grain, it will help smooth out the barrel and will start showing nodes. Shoot a target with multiple spots, shoot one with one charge at a spot, next load at another spot (each shot a different load and a different spot), and continue until one shows promise. So let's say you have 3 loads, number the targets 123. Shoot the corresponding target in order 123. Then next round do 321. Last one shoot 213. Let the barrel cool between rounds. It will show the better than a true group test because it is more random for each load. It is not always the first or 5th group that shoots best. Sometimes it takes a little bit to find the best load, in my testing I found my prc hates accubond lr 142 bullets, but will shoot just about anything else. My daughter's cm will shoot just about anything that is 140+ and between 2650 and 2700. My son's cm likes faster loads, 140s at 2800 or more, just start to see pressure signs as I move up. Give the barrel a chance to break in, what I have seen is bergaras are very accurate, been around a few now.

    6.5 prc reloads

    Was there something specific they were doing wrong? Usually it takes about 60 to 100 rounds to settle a barrel. For my prc I used that to break in and fire form brass. On the load side of it, standard large rifle primers seem to make better groups for me when running under 60 grains. Once over that I will go to the magnums. So I have loads worked up for imr 8133 and h1000. Both around 3k feet per second. Both under 1/2" at 100. I usually find the most accurate powder charge then mess with bullet seating. My prc has around 300 through the tube, but I know what each load is going to do and what the scope needs to shoot one from the other. One bullet 143 eldx, other 140 vld, one click difference in poi at 100.

    Archery Kills rolling in already

    I have a question for anyone that went out today. Does it seem like there is more, less or about the same amount of people hunting? I just wonder if the limits made more people go.

    Getting into welding question

    Hey, To the op, sorry l let my keyboard get ahead of me. If he really wants to weld, support it. We need more like that in the world, especially now. Having been brought up, the safety side of the argument comes to mind. There are very effective ways to keep chronic illnesses from effecting people in the trades now days, look into some of the filtered helmets for welding. This last part is about how to get there. There are college classes and tech schools that will give the basics, there is also getting on at certain places that have apprenticeships. There is a lot of companies in AZ that will teach you while you make a check if you are willing to learn.
