      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 .

So I bought a .50 cal CVA Buckhorn and I want to go sight it in tonight. My question is how high at 50yards to be close at 100yards? I'm going to be shooting 100 grains of 777 pellets and 240 grain TC sabot hollow points. I've heard between 2 and 4 inches, does that sound right? Thanks for all the help.

I set mine 2 inches at 50 yards and then usually it drops right in at 100. With open sites thats about as far as i'm going to shoot mine.

I also went and shot my Muzzy today. I played around with the different powder loads(100&150 grain loads) and also different bullets(250&295 Grain) . What I found was that at 100 yards it made no difference on the amount of powder or what bullet I was shooting. I fired 24 shots and I was on the paper within 7 inches of the center on all of the shots. The only difference was that the 100 graing powder loads were slower, Icould hear they hit the target.

At 50 yards I am 2-3 inches high.

2 inches high at 50 is about perfect. After 100 yards with 100 grains you will get significantly more drop. I shot one at 150 and I held on about on his spine and it dropped right into the boiler room. It dropped at least 7 inches at 150. I also shoot a .45cal so that may have made a difference as well.

i was out today making sure that ll my sights are ready to go. I was high at 50 years, and cant miss the mark at 100. I must have shot it 15 times at 100 yards, and was inside the black everytime.

Im getting pretty excited
