      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 .

Winchester Super X3 or Benelli M2 Field Slug

Recommended Posts

klee

I'm looking to get a new slug gun this year. I was thinking about one of these two. What do you guys think? I'm looking to get a 20 ga. Which has more recoil? I heard the super black eagle shoots very hard, so I'm staying away from that one. I like the Winchester because it is gas operated. I own a gas operated shot gun, and I like that I can't feel the recoil. I'm guessing that it is going to be different for a slug gun.

I would check out the prices for the extra slug or field barrel before the purchase if you don't get them both as a package. I checked into a slug barrel for my SX2 and it was around $500 2c

These two guns come with the deer barrel, so I won't have to buy extra barrels. It will be a dedicated deer gun only. I'm just wondering how they shoot and the recoil. The benelli is more than the winchester by a few hundred bucks.

If you are not set on the semi-auto action I would suggest looking at the Browning A-Bolt slug gun. It takes slug hunting out to 200 yards. It has good recoil reduction in the recoil pad. Also the Browning Maxus has a dedicated slug gun that is supposed to be an excellent semi. I don't know how they stack up for recoil but I have not heard anything bad about them.

If I was to buy a dedicated slug gun I would get the savage bolt 20ga well worth it and extremely accurate.

both the Benellie and SX3 will be great guns. In 20 gauge you will have still less recoil. I don't think you can go wrong with either. I would make sure you pick them both up and get a feel for them before you buy.

The savage bolt action is a very intriguing option. I have heard great things about it.

I have looked at those two type of guns, but I remember reading on here that people were having problems with the savage. I have never owned a savage, but I have owned Browing guns. Can you use this gun in a shotgun only zone?

The sx3 and the sbe are both great guns really. the sx3 being gas has a bit more allowance for being dirty, and such and is a bit faster, relatively speaking. But the benelli's inertia drive action, actually uses the kick of the shell to eject the round. this is what mostly(also it is in their buttstock design) that takes away the "48% of felt recoil"

For accuracy and straight dependability either, the differences would probably lie more on you rather than the gun here. Like Gordie said and others, the savages are great too, if you can find the savage slug warrior, it is a hevier berreled slug gun, a buddy Ryan up at cabelas is a gunsmith/builder and was using that as the platform for a pretty crazy project a couple years ago.

Yes it is a 20 ga shotgun.

I know a few that have it in 20 ga and they have not had one lick of problem with them and they wouldn't trade them for anything. I have heard that the guys that went with the 12ga models are switching to the 20 ga because of less felt recoil but thats all I have heard on the subject of those guns.

One of these guys uses his in rifle zone and is not worried in the least.

Yup they are perfectlly legal in the slug zone and top them with the slug BDC scope and they are a killing machine. I would only by the 20ga besides the recoil the ballistics for a 20ga slug is better then a 12.
