    seen a stove like that made out of a refrigerant gas bottle ,very light and the guy made the flue to break down and go inside it.very cool.tempted to make one like that out of a 9kg gas bottle.certainly makes it safer and easier a stove like that than an open fire .

    Awesome, set up and a neat cooker. That porker looks like a good eater, how do you like the 270 WSM ? I had one at my son's place and liked it a lot, traded it on a 325 WSM.

    Good stuff.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Yes the 270 WSM is a nice caliber shot 2 Mule deer over in Canada when we had mine, very efficient. I used 130 gr Barnes XLC (Blue Bullets) back then and they worked well but the new 145 ELD x would be good as well as they are working well in my 270 Win at 3100fps. Stacey is good to deal with OK does a good job.

    yip use the 145 ELD-X awesome bullet shoots like a tikka should put DBT bottom metal and one of his 20 MOA rail left the barrel standed lenght also with a DPT suppresser modified the magazine to seat the bullets right out

    Sounds like a good shooter alright, not sure why a lot of people don't like the caliber as it works, as do most of the others we all use.
