      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 .

Reducing muzzle jump

Recommended Posts

Any idea's on how to reduce Muzzle jump on your deer / Elk rifle?

I shoot a 7 MM Rem Mag & a 300 win mag.

I have a tendency to shoot High and want to minimize this problem.

Thanks in advance

It most likely has nothing to do with muzzle jump (climb) when you shoot your first round. The bullet has already left the barrel by the time the muzzle starts moving. If your second round is high, then there are a couple things you can do. Get a muzzle break (boss system or whatever manufacture you would like or need to use), get a better recoil pad that helps position your gun on your shoulder correctly. Hold your gun tighter to your shoulder and stay down on the shot.

My guess is that with the bigger calibers you may be flinching a bit which makes you shoot a bit high. This is normal and happens to most hunters that don't shoot big calibers on a regular basis. Go to the range with a buddy, have them load or not load your gun, not tipping you off to which they did. If you squeeze the trigger and flinch with no round chambered it is very obvious what the problem is. If you practice a smooth trigger squeeze you will be better off either way. I would also consider your breathing. If you release your breath or take in a big breath that can also effect the angle of your shoulder for the shot. Practicing breathing and trigger squeeze will help your shooting more than anything.

Plus make sure your scope is sighted in. Maybe your an excellent shot with a broken scope. I rather blame my equipment, but it is rarely the problem.

No, but I don't think that is what your dealing with. I think that is a bit of a gimmic, but that is my opinion. I have tried the mercury recoil reducers and I like the results, but I am a little bit concerned with the environmental aspect of the mercury so I got rid of it. I do think some of the limbsavers recoil pads would be worth a look.

Personnally any technology that helps you rip off 4-5 rounds quickly is really not worth the money. I would rather have one on target then 4 quick shots.

Yes the Boss system is loud. I have it on my 7mm rem mag, but it makes it so easy to shoot. I have a bad shoulder and it kicks like a .22, but could make you deaf. It is sooooo loud that your hunting partner 4 miles away will know you shot.

On a scale of 1 to 5 it received a 4.4 on Cabela's HSOforum

(Sims LimbSaver Barrel De-Resonator)

If its a gimmick I just lost 17 bucks.....LOL..

I'll let you know how it works out.

thanks again for the feedback

I lay my 7mm in my hand and try not to squeeze it and with the trigger hand I also do not grab ahold too tight, This seems to relax the arm/shoulder muscles. About the only thing I put a death grip on is against my shoulder. Just pull back and keep pressing back with out gripping

I have never used one. I hope it works for you. It will definately help with vibration, and if that makes you feel more comforable, then I am sure it will work for you. Good luck.

    • Looks like ill be taken a buddy out this wed. I enjoy calling one in for somebody just as much as shooting one. Hopefully everything works out for this is only his 2nd year at it. Last year i took him and he shot a dandy bird with a 11 1/4 beard and 1 1/8" spurs and weighed a little over 23#'s.   
    • Very impressive and unexpected win. Would be nice for this to be the start of Houston’s playoffs jinx.
    • Way to go Don!
    •   thanks!!!  It's on the peg board!!!  I would have forgotten!!!!  
    • Bird down!  Ryan tagged out yesterday on the first day of the year he could hunt. It's a pretty nice Tom with 3/4" sure and an 8 3/4" beard. I'll get some pics up and it entered when I can.

    • I took a short ride the other day but still a little chilly out in the breeze. Streets were pretty good as they were out sweeping them before the last snow. Saw a lot of bikes out the last couple of days. Don't forget to put your new licence tag on as I almost did.
