    2013 F150 Ecoboost Secondary A/C Fan

    When I first heard my wife's 15' ecoboost fan turn on, I was thinking WTF. A little googling turned out to be normal like raptor said but "more noticeable" is an understatement. It is loud as heck. Its still a bit disconcerting hearing that fan turn on.

    I know he was a bit standoffish in his posts but I can only imagine what he was going through. Liquidating my hunting gear to take care of my family is a hard pill to swallow. When you see death on the horizon, you cut right through the bullshit.

    New muzzleloader... Need help!!!

    My current setup is the UML action and stock fitted to fit the 26” Brux barrel with Arrowhead breech plug and a Timey trigger. I went with the Arrowhead breech plug because from what I read, and researched online is that the factory plug isn’t made to use BH209. That’s why BH209 doesn’t list specs to use in the UML nor does Remington for BH209. With using the UML .308 case as an ignition source it can cause headspacing issues from the factory and in fact my original breech plug was damaged from the factory and would even allow the bolt to close with the case. I had to get a replacement before I was even able to fire the rifle. I had the Arrowhead breech plug installed to eliminate all the headache with the UML breechplug and since I was doing that, I also swapped out the barrel. I have always had better accuracy with custom barrels over factory if the factory ones aren’t preforming. My UML might have been a Friday rifle, I have read good things about them and that is why I purchased it but I couldn’t get it to shoot 1 moa at 100 yards much less at the advertised 300 yards. My 250 dollar traditions muzzleloader was more accurate. You can convert the beech plug without replacing the barrel but after spending too much time and money trying to find a load, I figured a custom barrel was the ticket. Not trying to scare you away from the UML, there are plenty of people who have had good experiences with them just mine wasn’t. I have used my tradition muzzleloader on game out to 220 yards and targets to 300. If that’s all the range, you are looking for then I don’t know if you need to spend the money on an UML. I used my UML on a coues deer hunt and was able to harvest a buck at 120 yards. Now if you want a muzzleloader that is basically a single shot rifle out to 500 or so yards then look at an UML or Arrowhead modification. I am also by no means any kind of expert on muzzleloaders, I just have several and like to see how accurate I can get them.

    New muzzleloader... Need help!!!

    I have the Remington UML and I couldn't get it to shoot with BH209, pellets and various bullets. It would keyhole the supplied Barnes bullets with the 777 pellets that Remington recommended load. I sent it to Luke at Arrowhead rifles and he installed his breech plug and a new barrel on it. Now it shoots great with 115 grs by weight of BH209 and 300 gr bullets. I got a bag of the remington UML brass that you can have if you do go that route.

    Reloading "Oops" Thread

    I have accidentally emptied the powder thrower of H1000 into a jug of retumbo. Had to throw out the can. Not to mention I have crushed my fair share of cases.

    What do you carry with your 15x's?

    I usually carry 10s and 15s, with the spotter occasionally. I just picked up a pair of Meopta 12s and going to try out the 12s and spotter combo this year.
  15. I have .270 that weighs 8.5# scoped and I think that is ideal for carrying and shooting longer distances. I have a 14# 6.5 SAUM that is amazing at long distance just not fun to carry and on the other hand a 6.5# 7mm-08 that I find difficult to shoot long distance accurately but 400 and under no problem. None of those rifles have a heavy recoil though. If its going to be a coues specific rifle, in my opinion, I would look at a .264 or .284 caliber rifle that can shoot the high BC bullets at a decent rate.
