      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 .

Hornady Ammo

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone else has had a problem with this ammo. My freind is shooting hornady lever revolution ammo out of her brand new marlin 45-70 and the cases are splitting in the middle about a half inch long and their not heir line cracks their big ones. It's not every shell in the box wich tells me it's a manufacturing problem any input would be nice

I've been shooting Hornady's in my .223 for the past 3 years. Haven't had a problem yet.

I was splitting cases in the Black Hills Ammo though.

Edit:

I found it was 2 rounds of factory Hornady ammo out of 100 that split the cases. It wasn't the Black Hills.

I would get on the line and tell Hornady right away, that is a very dangerous situation, that could kill your buddy, stop shooting right away. MAke sure you give tham all the info they need, most likely they will need the lot number. Also try a different brand instead of hornady to see if its the gun, but most likely its the ammo.

I agree...

They would want to know about this.

The last time I spoke with there customer service it was top notch.

They used to have a really funny automated type phone system.

stop shooting and call the company........I was gonna ask if she thoroughly cleaned the barrel and action before she stated shooting, but if it is not splitting every single case, then that wouldn't explain it.

Yeah she was smart she shot about half a box and had two of them split so she bought diffrent ammo and didn't have a problem. She gave me the rest so I would have the lot# and other info to call them since she was leaving norther mn to texas for work. I shoot their ammo out of my .480 ruger and never had a problem gonna give them a call

If it's excess pressure you should notice some cratering on the primers...Otherwise it is very unusual for cases to split right in the middle of the case unless the cases themselves are in poor condition or have thin spots....It could also be a chamber problem with the rifle itself...have there been any problems at all with other brands of manufactured ammo? if so, It is more than likeley a headspacing or chamber problem in the rifle itself.

    • The building codes are really very important in order to keep the property safe. We need to upgrade the house acoording to these building codes.
    • And Del says ya can eat as many as ya want now!!!     
    • great cheap treat those smoked eggs.  
    • I actually prefer Honeycrisp, because of the sweet/tart flavor. Sweet tango ain't bad either. The others get TOO mushy and seem to lose flavor. But, it's a personal preference. Someone'll whine about there are better baking apples.  Made my apple roast the other day with the Honeycrisp, but put it in the crockpot instead of the oven. Came up with this 6-7 yrs ago.  And there's even a picture of it, since words give you so much difficulty, leech.            Reb's  Apple- pork roast


        One boneless 2-3 lb Pork Butt Roast Two cups  Fresh Apple Cider Rosemary Seasoned salt Black pepper to taste 4 oz Cinnamon Apple Sauce (These are the “Snak Pak” size cups) One  large Yellow Onion, sliced thin              Marinate the roast in the cider in a Zip-Loc bag, in the fridge, for 6-8 hours, turning frequently. Place roast in a greased baking dish, with some of the marinade. Sprinkle liberally with seasonings and lightly with the Rosemary.  Place thin layer of onions on top. Pour apple sauce over top. Put in a 300* oven for 45 mns to one hour, uncovered.  Cover and cook  for30- 45 mns- longer or until meat thermometer registers 155-160*. Do not overcook. Let sit covered for 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!  
    • @RebelSS, do you recommend any specific type of apples?
    • I forgot to put in the segment winners Spring        Juneau4 Summer     Henry's Heroes Playoff        BlackLundProV
    • Well quit hijacking the thread!!! we'll find someone serious sooner or later!
    • They can explain that over and over and I’m not buying it. I changed my ducer to the 12 like my 18. 
    • So your trying to work out the picture problem-right?
