      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 .

2 questions (Scope and ammo)

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I am relatively new to this awesome sport with only a couple successful stands but boy were they awesome. I was wondering for those of you who shoot Hornaday V-max if you prefer the moly tip or the metal one and maybe why you like either one. Also I am looking at getting a Nikon Monarch for my .223 and was wondering if anyone has used one and if they have what do you think of the BDC reticle or any other reticle that is like that. Thanks everyone I have learned a lot from paging through this.

I have a .243 weatherby with a nikon monarch 3-9x40 W/ the bdc reticle. To be honest, i have yet to shoot past 100 yrds, thats what i have it zeroed in at. But i think once a guy gets to know his rifle/ammo combo and sight it in w/ the bdc it will pay off. The monarch is a nice scope. I can see the bullet holes in a piece of plywood at 100 yrds at 9x power (very clear scope). I also have a bushnell 4-12x50 scope on my .22-250, and i would pick the nikon over the bushnell any day!!! As far as ammo goes, i use federal power shok 80 grain sp. cheapest i can find, and does the trick. Send me an e-mail if ya wanna go yote huntin this winter, your area or mine. mnhunter79@yahoo.com

moly coating is more of lubricant that protects and coats the boar, its used on higher fps bullets. There are positive opinions and negative opinons. I currently shoot 58 grain molys, I have no feedback either way.

Yes Moly does keep the copper fouling down in the gun bore, but the coating also attracts moisture, which if left in your barrel could cause rusting. You don't need to clean your barrel for copper fouling as much with the moly coat or you can go longer between cleanings. You also lose some velocity too, example: If I load 42.2 grains of Varget behind a 58 gr. Vmax non moly bullet, I will need to add more powder to the moly coated bullet to achieve the same velocity. I concern mysefl more with accuracy than velocity.

I have a couple loads for my 243 that I didn't get sighted in for this year. I did find a good load for 70 gr. nosler ballistic tips. But those are ballistic tipped, not soft or hollow point.

Hope this is helping.............
