      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 .

Reloading for Metallic cartridges

Recommended Posts

pbw, how do you like your case trimmer? I have looked at those, and also have been eyeballin hornady's case prep center for a future investment... how abut the powder measure/scale? Is it pretty much nuts on accurate or do you still need to watch it and tweek your loads by hand?

Is there a big advantage to the auto charge scales or are they a waste of money? Big C has one on sale right now, and I am thinking of getting one... I like to measure out each load, but I am working on prepping 1500 pcs of 223 brass to load up, and also am looking into reloading a pile up for a few different handguns in the future... so looking at doing a lot of rounds, but still want to maintain the consistency, but don't want to waste my money on things thats don't work, (i bought a case prep assistent) and i don't thinkit saves a lot of time, but makes it easier one the ol fingers....

Thoughts are appreciated

I started reloading using a Lyman 55 powder measure. I now use an RCBS 1500 Chargemaster and would never go back. It is slower than the 55 but I seat the bullet while the next charge is being thrown.

+1...... I used to hand measure out my loads but now with the charge master, I get consistent weight measurement and seat the bullet while the next load is being measured.....

For handguns I use a powder drop on my Dillon 550B. For rifle I use the RCBS electric powder scale and then hand drop each load into the casing.

right now the Hornady auto charge is on sale for 199 at the big C store... Which is about 50 bucks less than RCBS's charge master... both seam to have the same accuracy etc... Just thinkin maybe its a decent idea...

Anybody up to anything interesting lately? I am now loading for a 22-250, 3 .223s, 2 .300win mags, was loading for a .243, and 45 acp, and plan to pick up supplies for my 40 soon... looking into building a lead trap so i can start saving some of my lead, and possibly melt and sell it or cast my own lead... Also picked up a lee shot shell loader from a buddy and plan to give a few shot shells a try... Also planning on expanding my bench this week... been nice to have some time to get back to doing this this winter! Boy I enjoy it...
