      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 .

Question for .270 users

Recommended Posts

Gotem

I was just wondering what brand and grain bullets you guys use for deer hunting. I use Remington and have been thinking about switching to the 140 core-lokt ultra. Has anyone used these yet? Normally I shoot the 150. Also, at what range do you sight your rifle in at? I always hear to shoot at 100 yards, but what kind of drop is there going to be at 200-250 yards?

I shoot a Remington 700 in a .270. Currently using handloaded 150gr. Nosler partition bullets. Have also used 130gr. Hornady spire points, they are actually the most accurate of the two but I like the partition bullet for deer. I sight-in for dead on at 100 yds but where I hunt there isn't much chance of a shot beyond 150yds. That Core-lokt Ultra looks like a good round.

Partition bullets are made by Nosler (others have a similar design) and have a solid base.
Federal loads these bullets in the premium line of ammo. A boat-tail is when the side of the bullet slopes back in towards the center, near the bullets base. This design helps with accuracy on longer shots.

I alway use 130 winchester power points and sight in at 100 yards. It works well for me I got 4 deer in the last 2 years with that set up. 1 in 2001 and then 3 last year.

i mainly use 150 factory loads but i do save all my brass. I buy whatever is on sale and it seems to do the job. Federal is what i mostly buy. Cant really help you in the longer ranges cuz most of my shots are 150 yards or less. I use this same rounds for moose in Ontario. Put them in the right spot it brings them down. Brian

Gotem, if your zero is at 100yds you will drop 4.5 inches at 200yds and 13.5 inches at 300 yds. That is why it is suggested that you zero in at a longer range. If your zero is at 200 yds you will be 2 inches high at 100yds (no big deal) dead on at 200 and 7 inches low at 300. with that sighting situation your good to 300 yds easily, just put the cross hairs near the top 1/3 of the back for the long shot. Of course out where you live the wind will be a factor. I have tried about every brand and weight of bullet for my model 70 and it shoots the basic Remington 130 grain the most accurately, some brands and loads I had trouble holding even a 4" group with, every gun will have a different bullet it shoots best. 130gr is certainly enough to take a white tail and is what I have used for years. Incidentally, the above ballistics info came from a recent Outdoor News article. There are other ballistics books available but I think that the above info is pretty accurate. Good Luck

I shoot remington 150 grain. Deer hunting it has done the job fine, and did the job antelope hunting as well. As far as sighting in, when going for deer I always site in at 100, but when I went out for antelope I sighted in at 200. If you want to sight in at 100 yds but be able to shoot out farther just have it shooting about an inch high at 100 yds.

Hornady Light Magnums,130 gr. Sierra Boattails. I use them in 165 gr. in my 30-06 as well. Very flat shooting round. Works well for open field shooting.

here's the site for remington. you can check out the ballistics. I prefer the 130 grain. shoots a hair flatter than the 140 grain energy is allmost the same.

      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.

      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.

      Still pheasant hunting and still seeing lots of birds!  Went out an afternoon this past week and saw about 75 in 2.5 hours.  Went home with my 3 roosters.  Everything is froze good now so its easy walking and there's fresh snow.

      Welcome to FM, Some lakes near you that are good and have some quality  are Ann,Knife and Fish to the East and the Briggs chain to the West.  Look for green vegetation or mud basin bug hatches for action. 
    • monstermoose78
      Sure helps to find them when you have some of the top panfish anglers around helping

      Good fish Rick way to find some quality fish in a highly pressured area. Takes skill to be able to accomplish that. Maybe run into you one of these days out there
    • IceHawk
      Nice fish guys looked like a good time was had . That lake has some quality for sure. Figured you guys would dial them in.
    • Jory
      Not new to ice fishing but I can't seem to find the fish anymore around my neck of the woods in foley mn. so if anyone could give great insight of lakes times and maybe hints of baits and area of the lake would be awesome.
