I have used Kountry Meats in Elk Grove before, I thought they were rather expensive compared to other places I've used. But those places were outside Sacramento. Standard cut and wrap is all I ever had done. Seemed like when I got my meat back there was hardly anything left so I would rather cut it myself. Since I like to make a lot of jerky that is better for me.
The Mad Butcher is on Florin-Perkins. The cleanest butcher shop i have ever been in. The prices are fair and the turnaround is quick. I got my pig back in a week. The sausage turned out well and the packaging was first rate. I will be going back again very soon.
Anyone who shoots a sabot bullet has had the problem with loading the next round with a dirty barrel we have all struggled with it.
Between muzzleloader shots I have done some research and testing on my own to find out what works for me for the next shot. I have been using a product called bore butter and when the muzzleloader is just sitting around I leave it caked in the barrel for protection. Have also found that if I lube my sabots with bore butter they really slide nicely down the barrel....
