      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 guys-

 

I'm looking to purchase (good deal) on a vortex scope. I'm looking to put this on top of a AR-10 (.308). Two models I have interest in are Viper HS-T4 (4x16x44) and Viper PST 4x16x50.

Any info wold be extremely helpful. I've owned Leupold, redfield, and Simons so this is a first with Vortex. Like a said, smoking good deal but if they are junk, I'll pass. I've also only had 3x9's so the extra power is new also. The goal for this combo is Elk hunting out west.

 

Thanks,

CC

Just talked a guy yesterday that was pretty hip on the Vortex scopes.  He picked up two after his brother, who's an accomplished long range shooter, explained why he's into them. 

 

The quality and clarity were good for long range and the lifetime warranty made him a convert.  He didn't like his highest power model though (24x if I remember right).  Too much interference from his heartbeat!

 

I plan to check them out a little closer.  I have two Nikon BDCs I want to replace.

I have the Viper HS-T 2.5-10x44 on a Tikka 270 WSM.  It is an absolutely wonderful scope.  

 

I just built a lightweight Kimber Montana rifle, and the only reason I didn't get the exact same one is because the Leupold VX3i w/CDS was quite a bit lighter.  The Viper has slightly better clarity and brightness.

I have a Crossfire II 4-16x50 on my .308 elk rifle and I love it. Great scope, very clear and bright and Vortex quality. I have not had a single issue with it and the Crossfire is on the budget end of their glass. I've great reports from those with the higher end scopes. I wouldn't hesitate for a second.

As far as which one to choose, I find the 50mm scope a little big and heavy. You'll likely have issues mounting to an AR due to its size. Mine had the benefit of the barrel taper allowing for the larger lens to fit. If I had a flat top like an AR it wouldn't fit as well.
