      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 .

.270 range

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure about that one, but I have shot at the range out to 200 yds and didn't have any problems. I would think you would be all right out to 300 yds, but do some more research before you go trying it. I shoot 130 grain Remington PSP's out of mine and it really smacks them HARD!!! My average shot is between 50 and 100yds. Short blood trails, unless of course they're DRT.

The 270 has more than enough oomph to knock a deer down farther away than most people can hit them, put your bullet where it belongs and it's all over but the story tellin.

My buddy and I each shoot remington 700 .270 bolt action last week on Caribou (bigger than whitetails). He shot his at 300 yards and I shot mine at 215 yards...both did the trick. Both shooting 130 grain winchester silvertips. As mentioned...put the bullet in the right spot and you can probably shoot as far as your comfortable with.

good info guys, i was thinking of using a .270 instead of a 7mm because of ammo prices and wanting to shoot more ahead of time

270 is all my dad uses even for moose. Seen him drop his biggest bull in its tracks with his 270. Shouldnt be a problem for deer at just about any range. I know 2 people that had taken moose close to 500 yards with a 270. Like FL SNIPER mentioned shoot as far as your comfortable with. Good luck

The .270 is a very versital caliber for shooting deer, speed goats, bear, and caribu. It all depends on what your capable of shooting out to and what size grain bullet you fly through it. A wise decesion imo!!!
