      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 .

Remington 740 Woodsmaster 308

Recommended Posts

My wife has decided that she wants me to take her deer hunting this year for her first time. Since I have always used a shotgun for deer and she will be hunting in a rifle area I want to know if anyone has used this particular type of rifle and what the pro's and con's are. It is my fathers gun and he hasn't shot it in 40 years so I'm just wondering what to expect from it. (accuracy, user friendly for a first time rifle user)

Like the rest give a good cleaning, make sure the action slides nice and easy but don't over oil. Take her and the .308 to a range and make sure it's sighted it and haver her shoot it so she's comfortable with the feel and recoil and how it shoots. The .308 is a great caliber with light recoil for her, should be just fine. Just make sure you or her shoot it before your hunt so you can fix any issues before your hunt, you wouldn't want to find out it jams after the first shot and then ruin your wife hunting experiences as she needed that second shot on Mr. Big Buck and he say's bye, bye and runs off.

I have a 15 years old Rem Model 7400 in .308 its almost same as a 740. I love it and recoils are in comfortable zone. You should clean it up before you take it to the range. Its accurate and I've shot many deer with it.

I have a 18 yr old 7400 30-06 (same 740 action) and usually put a box of shells through it every fall. I shoot 3" groups at 100 yds. on sand bags! OUCH! It's never done better but has done worse if the screw is loose on the forearm stock! In fact you should probably take the forearm stock off to see if there is a lot of carbon buildup on the gas port.

I keep it lubed at the range but shoot it dry while deer hunting. Never had a problem since you should only need 1 shot per kill :-)

Good luck,

Ferny
