That's the method of choice, only our geese are so big, we use a minimum of a 30-06, 180 grain.
Holy crap. That’s a pterodactyl load!
Huh, 'round here we call that a turkey load.
Maybe you should bump those up to the 220gr .06 bullets just to be safe.
We often use the 220 gr. for the Giant Canadas, because the local Walmart doesn't carry to much of the .375 H&H 250 gr. ammo.
the 5.0 litre is pretty bullet proof. I had bought the eco-boost to give me extra power for pulling a 28 foot travel trailer. Gobs of power and torque, but the reliability is just plain poor. I find the ride on the F-150 is excellent when compared to comparable GM or Dodge products. I need a comfy ride, as I regularly drive to WPG, which is 6.5 hours away from here, and if the seat is stiff or uncomfortable, you can roll me out of the truck when I get there.
If you think the f150 is nice. Go ride in a Ram. As an owner of both I can say it’s not even close. The f150 does handle better. Prolly due to its light weight.
The newer ecoboosts are much more reliable. You have an early model.
I’ll reserve judgement on Dodge until they prove they can build a transmission that doesn’t fall apart within a few years. Maybe they have turned a corner; hired better engineers, retooled the factories. But I’m not gonna overlook decades of Dodge’s documented low quality products because @buck_master_2001 from the Refuge (as much as I value your opinion) says Dodge’s are good now.
Besides, weren’t you pimping Fords a couple years ago, saying they are the best thing since sliced bread? And now you are pimping Dodges? Seems suspect to me.
Same (with minor updates) tranny in the 2013-2019 models. 8 speed German outfit.
It's all about the ride. I find my F-150 is very comfy. My BIL's Dodge seats are stiff, and I find the ride harsh, but I think he has an air-ride system installed for his fifth wheel, but I can only state what I felt anecdotally. I still might just grab a Hilux import and run it into the ground. An older one, maybe a 2003-2005 with mechanical linkages rather than electronic. My favorite episode of top gear was the one where they try to kill the Toyota Hilux. (part 2 and 3 are links)
