      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 .

my dad has lead brass and primers,.270, was looking to find some one interested in reloading them, what would it cost or should he just sell the stuff?

If you will be using the ammuntion in the same rifle that the brass came from a Lee Classic Loader kit will have everything except the powder for you to load the rounds yourself. The kits sell at Cabelas for less than $20. A pound of powder is in the $15 to $20 range.

The kit uses powder dippers so you don't have to fuss with a scale. I think they even have a caliber specific load chart so you could even get by without a manual. I recommend getting the lee manual anyway as there is ton of good safety and gun info in it.

The reason for using the ammunition in the same rifle that the brass comes from is the Lee Classic loader neck sizes only. This could lead to difficulty in chambering the round in a different gun.

I disagree, you need a scale, even a mechanical one, in fact I have one you can have. you're dealing with gun powder, safety needs to be taken.

but yes, if you want to reload them, get the lee classic kit, either the hand held or the full length version.

there is a caliber specific loading book for that has all the listings from different bullet makers and powder manufacturers as well. I recommend that and a reloading book. Once you get into reloading it is pretty simple, but I still worry when I am priming the cases. those little buggers have some umph behind them........
