    Prime Rib HST test

    I pulled a prime rib out of the freezer to put in the fridge for Sunday dinner. It occurred to be it would make a great test for an HST. As I could shoot a round into the meat 14 inches and then one or two through the rib side 9 inches. To see tissue damage and to see what happens when an HST hits bone. Not going to hurt the meat except maybe some rib splinters. My wife went through the roof. She is not a big prime rib fan to start with and hates that I go to the butcher to buy ours. Basically thinks we spend too much on it to be shooting it. Anyway, that got nixed but she suggested I try it on a cheap roast so any ideas what kind of roast would make a good test?

    I admire your enthusiasm and aren't we glad our wifes keep us grounded (occasionally) . Fresh road kill may be a good idea to keep from shooting up the pot roast. All though I've had a few pot roasts I would have rather shot than eat.

    Vac-pac?

    I think I would try a brisket or two for penetration, and maby a shoulder primal or rack of ribs with a brisket behind it? Please don't give me any ideas, my better half will take away my internet connection if I start shooting the food that is ALREADY dead!!




    Good luck,

    There are areas of this great country where you can go to jail for ruining a beautiful piece of meat like that.....and rightfully so!

    Good Lord, I get get so excited over aging and cooking a standing rib roast that I am at a loss for words. Maybe you could hook up with you local butcher for out of date stuff they trash.

    I think if I would have suggested that my wife would have used the gun on me!! With the price of meat now, and especially a prime rib roast.....she would probably get off on justifiable homicide defense!!!

    Butcher

    +1 for the local butcher idea. I've done that before.

    I work hard risking my finger to feed you all great cuts of meat(i am a meat cutter). that being said a top round roast can always use some tenderizing.

    I'm lucky, a nice meat market opened within walking distance of my house. If he thought I was shooting his meat, I would lose my hook up on aged, custom cut beef. Everyone should have a relationship with a butcher, a doctor, and a car dealer.

    That is just wrong is so many ways.

    Find someone with a dead cow or something else to shoot, but please leave the prime rib alone man.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.
