    I don't worry too much about expansion when I get the penetration needed to make a kill. A 308 not expanding is like a 243 with some expansion. a .30 hole driven deep is plenty enough

    Thanks for your thoughts Boxhitch. I’d tend to agree with you on the expansion.

    I think you are right on the sled. It is a Pelican. I have 2 of them I bought from Canadian Tire that fit side by side in the back of my truck. They have taken a beating and packed a lot of game out. I also use them to pack around my deflated Solar 380 jet tunnel and Merc 20hp factory jet. They really help for loading stuff in the truck.

    As for length, they would be slightly under 6 foot long. I can slide them in the truck and put a 5 gallon gas can behind them. That’s in a 6-1/2’ box.
    You find it offensive, but I find it funny... Thatís why Iím happier than you.
