  2. Re: Transitioning from all mediums to double deep brood boxes.

    I guess an honest question would be: Why do you want to do it? Three mediums is the same surface area as 2 deeps is it not? Just run 3 mediums for a brood chamber.

    Re: Gas powered super cart

    I know sharpdog made one. I think parts cost 1500-1900. So if you have lots of time and patience you could save $1000. Possibly you could PM sharpdog he would be an expert on it.

    As stated above 30-06. I bought a .300 Win Mag first and hated every moment of using it. Plus every corner store and hardware store is sure to have a box of shells.
