      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 .

H & R Ultra Slug Hunter

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of picking one up for next season. I'm using a Mossberg 500 and really dont like it much. Does anyone out there either own one or have shot one?

I was also using a Mossberg 500 up until 3 years ago when I got one of the savage 220f guns. Deadly accurate! I'm putting 6" groups together at 135 yards with factory ammo! I know I could do better than this too if I could find more 3” slugs. Right now I’m using the 2 ¾ federal accutip after trying all the major brands. These did the best.

They also make it in a 12 gauge but from the research I did, the 20 had the same ballistics and less kick.

I was also looking at the Savages, but I have never really liked bolt actions much. It was down to these 2 guns and I can pick up the H & R for $260 new vs $599 for the Savage.

I bought one of these a few years ago as an inexpensive gun when I got invited to SE MN to deer hunt in the shotgun/muzzleloader zone. I have to say it is some of the best $$ i have ever spent. Because it is a single shot it has no receiver and is very compact and handy. I got mine in twenty guage. It has become my go to gun, even up north where I can use a rifle. I hunt in big woods where the range is more than adequate. Mine is sighted in 3" high at 100, puts it 1" low at 150 with 2 3/4 shells. My biggest problem now is that I have a son who started hunting last year and he loves it too! Guess I will be purchasing another. He loves the simplicity of it, and it is VERY accurate. Take the time to find the brand of slugs that it likes and you WILL NOT be disappointed.

I'll be picking up one in 20 gauge, what rounds have you gotten the best results from?

Sorry it took me a while to get back on this one. I shoot federal 5/8 oz copper solids with good results in 2 3/4 in. Just make sure you buy slugs that are meant only for a rifled barrel. They are quite spendy, about 15 bucks for a box of 5. The good news is that as it is a single shot and quite accurate you won't have to shoot it a lot. Last year my son and I shot it about 7 times. 5 rounds to confirm zero and let him get used to the gun, 2 times to kill 2 deer. When we want to practice we use other (less expensive to shoot) guns. Good luck, I think you will be very pleasantly surprised.
