Hadn't thought of that. Fresh jerky strips while you hunt.
I like it.
Now I know what to use my old 1903A3 Springfield 30-06 for.
Might make it worth carrying around, now.
Wonder if I can install a small griddle a couple inches in front of the receiver......hmmm.
Might make it worth the shoulder bruise.
I'll get back to you.
Probably just stick to the .308 Gunsite Scout.
It does an excellent job of putting blood on the ground and meat in the freezer.
I can heat up the 30-06 later to smoke some venison jerky.
