      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 .

copper bullets

are you talking rifle (Triple Shock X-bullets or TSXs)? Or shotgun (Expanders)? I used them both actually. Awesome. Accurate and awesome.

I have been using Barnes x series bullets (hand loads) in my .338 win mag, and .338/06 for the last decade.

Simply fantastic performance. These bullets have taken 4 elk, and over a dozen deer since then. All one shot kills.

The X bullets have been replaced by the TSX, but performance is not changed.

Both guns shoot the same 210 grain bullet. I have recoverd two of them, and they both still weighed 210 grains, even though they opened up to about .50 cal. One went through both shoulder blades of a buck, lodging in the skin on the far side. Other one went through the front chest of a buck, breaking bone on the way in, breaking ribs on the way out, and lodging in a back knee. Both recovered bullets look like they came from a magazine ad.

The .338 gets one inch or better grouping at 100 yards, the .338/06 does 1.25 to 1.5 inch groups.

No problems from our party. Three very dead deer including my personal best 10pt (156 green). Not 1 went more than 30 yards and two of them dropped in their tracks. This is our first year shooting Barnes and had no issues. All ours were hand loads though.

I think Barnes has great bullets. Last year I used factory loaded TSX to kill one deer and hand loads on the other deer. Both were pass-through shots through shoulder bone and I could see where the bullets entered the ground. I also used Barnes TTSX in Wyoming for a Mule deer. They are expensive factory loads $40-$45 per box. I can had load for about $17 if I reuse the brass.
