      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 .

.22 shells for a 10/22

Recommended Posts

sportfish

I was woundering what .22 shells shoot the best out of rugers 10/22 ? I just bought a 10/22 with the target barel,and looking for advice on a good round thats not to spendy but groups good. I shot some cheep shells that shot so so. But its hard to keep it loaded with the 25 shot clip becuse it to much fun to blast off fast. I think I'll have to get the 50 shot clip..

Just wait until you upgrade to an AR-15...then' you'll find out what fun shooting is, you'll run through a couple hundred shells in few minutes .... grin.gif

Then you'll search the internet and find out you can do "bump shooting", there it goes another couple or three hundred shells down the barrel.... grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

im partial to CCI brand ammo for my rugers. i have an "in" so i can get cci stingers for wholesale price, so thats pretty much all i shoot. but as far as what shoots good, i would stick to higher quality stuff, even if your running hundreds of rounds through just blasting away, youll get less fouling and buildup in the action and barrel.

Some of ya'all boys might want to read the manual that came with your 10-22 to learn what it has to say about shooting various "hot" .22 cartridges.

I think if you simply can't find a magazine large enough to hold all of what you want to blow up you might talk with a good gunsmith about converting your 10-22 to a belt fed model, water cooled.

Thank you and good night. confused.gif

I seem to remember that it said something about" stingers "and other hot loads not being approved for use in the 10-22 Target. I guess if you've been shooting them thats okay for YOUR rifle. Why don't you check the Ruger site just for the heck of it. wink.gif

Have been shooting CCI mini mag long rifle hollow points (cheaper in price and not a hot as stinger)for the last couple years in two Ruger 10/22. Before that I had intermittent jam problems with low price 500 round bricks of 22 shells. Sportsman's warehouse gun dept suggested these CCI shell to fix the 10/22 jam problems and I have not had any problems since switching to these shells.

I've had the same problem with my Ruger 10/22 jamming quite frequently shooting the cheaper brick .22 ammo from a couple different manufactures. I'll try running some of the better ammo through it and see if that does it for me. Thanks

I had some issues with some manafacturers and loads.

I settled in on American Eagle 40Gr hollowpoints.

Now it's BAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAM....

Load the next clip in and repeat!! Shoot all day if you

want, and it won't hurt ya in the wallet. You may want

to invest in those speed loaders where ya dump in the

loose rounds,then just turn the knob to load the clip.

The best round I've found for my ruger 10/22 has been Remington's Golden Bullet in hollow points. They're about mid priced and shoot well, and can usually find them in 325 round boxes. I swear by them!!! I know it's a reach, but I've knocked crows at 175 yards with the rounds.

CCI is the only way to go with Ruger's 10/22's. I have 2 of them just because i love the Ruger 10/22 and i've fought the best is the CCI stingers. Shoots the most accurate.

Didn't matter what I shot with my 10/22, still jammed alot. Now I shoot a marlin SQ880 bolt. I will admit though, when the ruger didn't jam, it was fun to shoot, hated reloading.

I'll second the Rem Gold hollowpoints, they've been the best for me out of my 10/22. But I think I'll try the CCI's now...just to see if I'm missing anything. Thanks.

      Yesterday the MN DNR announced a license requirement change effective NOW for this ice season. All Wheel House and other fishing structures which cannot be folded / collapsed must be licensed even if you remove the house when you get off the ice.

      Harvest climbs 16 percent from 2016 Minnesota firearms hunters registered 161,057 deer through the third weekend of deer season, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  Preliminary results through the third weekend show that the number of deer registered was up 16 percent from 2016. Of the deer harvested, 53 percent were bucks, compared to 63 percent during the same period in 2016. In Zone 1, in northeastern Minnesota, total firearms harvest was up 36 percent. In Zone 2, which covers the majority of the state and runs from Canada to Iowa, harvest was up 10 percent and Zone 3, in southeastern Minnesota, was down 5 percent. “The conditions were generally good for hunters participating in the last week of the Zone 1 season and for the start of the 3B season in the southeast,” said Erik Thorson, acting big game program leader, “which provided a boost to the statewide firearms harvest.” Based upon the number of antlerless permits available and the number of permit areas that allow multiple deer to be taken, the DNR is projecting the 2017 total deer harvest to be around 200,000. The 2016 total harvest was 173,213 and to date firearms and archery hunters have harvested about 180,000 deer this year. In much of Minnesota, the firearms deer season ended Nov. 12, and the northern rifle zone season ended Nov. 19. The late southeast firearms deer season is open through Sunday, Nov. 26. The muzzleloader season begins Saturday, Nov. 25, and continues through Sunday, Dec. 10. More information on deer management can be found at mndnr.gov/deer. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Applications due by Saturday, Dec. 16  The Department of Natural Resources, the Metropolitan Council and the Greater Minnesota Regional Parks and Trails Commission are seeking qualified applicants to serve on the Parks and Trails Legacy Advisory Committee.  “The Parks and Trails Legacy Advisory Committee plays a critical role in helping us achieve the vision Minnesotans have for use of the Parks and Trails Legacy Funds and creates an accessible and equitable, integrated system of state and regional parks and trails in Minnesota,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. The purpose of the committee is to promote and coordinate implementation of the 25-Year Parks and Trails Legacy Plan. Funding recommendations for individual projects is not a part of this committee’s work. The plan can be found at on the parks and trails legacy plan page. 2018 will mark the 10th anniversary of the passage of the Legacy Amendment by Minnesota voters. The committee is planning a series of regional events during the year to celebrate Legacy accomplishments and engage Minnesotans on the question, “Why Parks and Trails Legacy Matters.”  Information about the events will be available in January on Facebook (/PTLegacyMN) and on the committee website (www.legacy.leg.mn/ptlac). The deadline for applications is Saturday, Dec. 16. The committee is made up of 17 members, including, to the practical extent possible, diverse geographical and demographic representation. The committee has a mixture of park and trail professionals and Minnesota residents. Committee members should have expertise in two or more of the four strategic pillars of the plan: Connect people and the outdoors. Acquire land and create opportunities. Take care of what we have. Coordinate among partners. Terms are two years with the option of being reappointed for a maximum of three terms. Meetings are scheduled every two months around the state, with an option to attend remotely. Interested individuals may complete the application form online at www.legacy.leg.mn/ptlac/member-application or print it out and return it to Paul Purman, Department of Natural Resources, Box 39, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN 55155.

      Thanks much Huntnfish and ZachD!!!  Had the wife pick me up some CCI 209 Magnum primers and seems to have fixed the issue.  Went out the other night and put 7 rounds through the ole CVA and didn't have a single hangfire.  I'm ready for the weekend.

      Is Big Bay completely frozen over yet?
