      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 .

M1 garand Ammo

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased an M1 garand I intend to use it for target shooting, as well as for deer. I am looking to pick up some mil surplus rounds, or at least some rounds that are cheap enough to burn through 100 at a time.

Idealy I want 150grain ammo to put through it beacuse any higher is not good for the rifle.

What do people recomend. I will not use corosive ammo.

You are probably looking for some M2 Ball ammo. This is loaded with a 152 grain FMJ bullet. There is some US made surplus available but most of the surplus you will find will be foriegn made. Malayasia makes this round still, the cases are brass with berdan primers and non corrisive primers. If you perfer european manufacture look for Sellier And Bellot.

You can find some good deals on occasion from places like Cheaper than dirt, Sportsmans Guide, Midway USA, and some of the other online retailers. Another online option would be the auction site Gunroker.

Right now you can get 400 rounds of korean made M2 from Midway USA for $100 plus shipping. Product #: 355671

This is brass cased and boxer primed which means if you police your brass you could reload the ammo or sell the brass to a reloader. You can find some ammo cheaper but with a berdan primer which is not reloadable.

Lucky duck, I am jealous....nothing to add really, those sights listed above are what I would recommend. Maybe also check out a few local gun shows.....as far as the reloading goes, If you are looking at running 100 or so at a time, I would seriously consider starting to reload. That way you can control what you are feeding your new baby. Some day I too will own a M1 Garand...I am just not sure in which lifetime that will be
