      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 .

Recommended Posts

Found a couple speed loaders that still had the pellet style powder charge in them...They have been in the house and curious if they are still good?

If they have been kept dry they will be fine. I ussually like to use up my last years powder for pre season sighting/practice etc. and purchase new for the hunting season but this is totally personal preferance and would be totally comfortable using last years powder for hunting this year.

Good luck!

Ditto, but I also try to use the old stuff first.

Use up your Pyrodex & buy Triple 7 next time. It shoots the same as far as I can tell & costs more, but when it's time to clean your gun you'll be glad you did. Plus if you wait a few days or until right after season to clean it, it won't be corroded.

I just shot up the powder out of 4 of my speed loaders packed from last year. No problems. I have about 15 more shots worth of pyrodex pellets from last year also that I plan on using for the upcoming season. They were stored properly so they should be fine.

One thing about the pryrodex compared to 777 is it sure stinks a lot more like sulfer when you shoot. I guess I bought it for more of a traditional feeling with my in-line, rifled, 200yd accuracy ML.

One thing when shooting muzzleloaders that one just needs to accept is that they need to be cleaned (at least one patch) after each shot- and really good after you are done shooting. I know this is not always practical while hunting and trying to get a quick second shot, but if they are not cleaned good at the end of the day (even with using 777) you are just asking for trouble. Also, when you run that one patch between shots bullets obviously go down better and final cleaning goes much much faster.
