Okay I'll bite. "Chicken fried backstrap"? Give me the lowdown on what that is. Is that just breaded with gravy on it?

Yep, tenderized backstrap medallions, dredged in flour, fried in bacon grease and white gravy made from the drippings

I do something similar. I just use sliced backstrap medallions, not tenderized, which I assume you mean pounded out some. And I take flour and cornstarch in equal parts (sometimes add in some Italian bread crumbs if I want a thicker coating) and then shake in some onion powder and smoked salt and pepper. Dredge them twice and then fry them in lard, about 2 minutes on each side (until the blood rises thru the coating, then flip). I've never made the gravy for them though, but now I might try that, it sounds good!

Got one last week and another one today. Both in the 100 to 125 pound range. Both clean, plump, and not foul smelling. Cubed the backstraps and hams, everything else goes to pan sausage.

Both were about 100 yards away. Shot with my Weatherby Vanguard chambered in 7 Rem Mag. Shooting a homemade bullet, Hodgdon's Varget at 55 grains with a Barnes 120 grain Triple Shok bullet. Significantly reduced recoil and increased control. These two pigs are the first game I have killed with my reloaded rounds. One shot each, and they just rolled over! Optics is by Bushnell 4X12 with infnitely variable objective lens. I set this scope up 10 years ago dead-on balls, and it is still dead-on balls. Since then, I have bought three more of these same scopes for other rifles. They perform neck and neck with my buddie's Leupold. Right down to the low light sighting. I think they are called Bushmaster... can't remember. I have one on my Savage .243, Weatherby 7 Rem Mag, Remington 742 Woods Master in .30-06, and on my Mauser 7X57. Great optics for the money. They hold well without ever having to test fire before the season opens.

Then a yearling buck came out on the plot. Dead hog in the middle, right? He just finished kicking out, The buck walks over to the dead pig and starts to graze right next to it. This buck has a big body but his pegs ain't broke his hairline. So no shootie. Then a monster doe walks about. She was skittish at first but called donw immediately, and she began grazing right around the hog. They ate until I HAD to get down and they r-u-n-n-o-f-t together! Maybe we'll see something better tomorrow?

Nice piggie's Scott!

It sounds like you have that 7 Mag loaded down to 7-08 velocity, with 120's recoil should be pretty mild and almost a ballistic twin to the 7X57.

Actually, the 7 mag exceeds both of those cartridges. Faster and flatter. I think I am at 3300 fps with the powder I am using. It is "0" at 200 yards, dropping about 5.5" at 300. The ballistic comparison with the 7X57 is identical as it is the same bullet (.284 dia). I have a 7X57, and it has a great history (old Spanish Mauser). The 7mm-08 is also hard to beat. There is no recoil with the 120s, making this magnum round very pleasant to shoot.

Forgot to say "Thanks" Dave. I know you like the piggies pics!

I love the 7mm rem mag that I hunt pigs with. Very flat shooting. The other thing is, I hear stories of pigs getting up and charging people after they have been shot.... That just doesn't happen with the 7mag... They go down and stay down. I have never had a pig charge me and I have shot more than a couple dozen.

I am a little late in posting this as it happened almost a month ago but I did want to share. This seems to be the most appropriate thread to do it in.

On the way home from Colorado to Illinois after the holidays I decided to take the southern route so I could stop by and visit our very own resident expert tool and die maker, Jim Crabtree himself.

He was making some shackles that day, at least until I showed up.


We visited most of the day and talked about all sorts of things. One of the things I was wanting to get done was to thread the end of my AR barrel so it could take a flash suppressor. Jim said no problem so I made sure I brought it with me on my trip. Here is a good picture of my AR at the range last summer, it's a 16" Bushmaster.


We really didn't take a lot of pictures but we broke it down to the bare barrel and Jim carefully chucked it up in the lathe.


Here Jim is necking it down to the correct diameter.


Finished with cutting the threads.


Fully assembled except for the flashlight I left off the left side rail.


Just to keep this Jeep related.


The laser is green.


The four power MIL dot lights up green.


And red.


Thanks again to Jim for basically taking the day off to visit with me and work on the AR.

Too bad it was so windy as it would have been fun to shoot. Maybe next time.

Way to go Jim

Sweet Bushy Mike, and you need to get out and shoot that 308 too

Scott, I want a suppressed 22 rimfire and another for my AR but I have not decided if the fun would be worth the hassle and cost of registration.

Shot this the previous night and went back to see it the next day to see if I could knock out some coyotes. The buzzards had done some serious work on it.

Thanks Dave. I do need to shoot my new 308. It came with a bore sighted 3x9 and I was hoping to sight it in at Jim's place but with 20-40 mph winds it was not the ideal time to be doing initial sight in. I love how light weight the Savage is coming in at 6.5 pounds with the scope. My R700 VSSF and the AR both come in at a hefty 12.5 pounds each.
