      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 .

20 gauge slug question

Recommended Posts

woody1975

I have a nephew that is going up north deer hunting with us this year. First year up north, he is going to use our Mossberg Bantam youth 20 gauge qnd we are going to put a scope on it. My question is what slugs does anybody recommend for a smoooth bore 20 gauge?

20 gauge is just used the first year, so we don't want to buy a slug barrel. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

My 13 year old last year shot a doe with the Remington Sluggers out of an 870 youth gun. You really just need to shoot a couple brands to see what shoots the best in that gun. Don't get sabots as they are not intended for smooth bores.

Federal Tru-Ball is another slug worth noting. I have a niece that has proven to be deadly accurate year after year. Her best feat has been a deer running all out (crossing pattern) at 75 yards. Some would say this is a fluke, be she continues to repeat her accuracy each season with these slugs. I think she's using a Mossberg 500 20 ga.

Try using Brenneke Rotweille brand. I've used them for years on my Remington 870 and haven't gone to anything else. I've upgraded to a 16 gauge and still using the Brenneke. It's very accurate up to 75 yds. I remember my uncle hitting deer up to 100 yds and the deer just drop. Give it shot and you'll love it.

I shoot the Brenneke Golds through my rifled barrell, nothing else. I've tried the sabot rounds, but they just weren't getting the penetration. Very accurate, but poor results.

The regular Brenneke's for smooth bore guns, as mentioned, are another good round.

As I said before, every gun is different and you need to see what shoots best out of your set up. I used to use those Brenneke's but you couldn't give them to me anymore. We did not have good accuracy with them at all.
