      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Hey are there any handloaders out there who would be willing to reload some 270 win rounds for me? I'd pay for all materials and pay you as well. The problem is i want some really lightweight 270 ammunition, but i dont have any reloading experience, and as i am going to college soon i wont have room for it.

Thanks

Jackal, although I appreciate your desire to have ammo loaded for you, I, personally, wouldn't do it. I never have nor never will reload for anyone else because of the the liability. In my opinion anyone that does is asking for problems. Besides, the cost of components now-a-days would not justify savings for a one time deal.

Excellent Advice , I've been reloading for about 47 years and I would NEVER load for another...............

Besides the fact that reloading for another person could be a liability disaster, you should know that it can be complicated to find a load that shoots well out of your gun. You can easily spend big $$$$ working up a load.

Every gun is different and there are many factors that will effect how your .270 shoots. Bullet, powder, bullet seat depth, primers etc.. all effect how your gun will shoot. In other words, my .270 pet load (that shoots perfect out of my gun) may shoot badly out of yours.

The factors mentioned above also seem to get even more complicated when you shoot smaller bullets out of a big gun. A .270 typically shoots 130-150 grain bullets well, but when you dip down into the smaller bullets like the 90 grain, it tends to get finicky. Not saying it's impossible, just saying it could take some time.

My advice, shoot factory rounds for the time being, then get into reloading when you get some more space.

Superior or Conelly Precision are another couple of names of outfits that sell custom reloads. They will even do mixed boxes to help you work up loads for you rifle. I've heard good things, but haven't used either personally and would expect to drop some coin to have a company do handloads for you.
