      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 .

Need a new gun & help

Recommended Posts

Canuck

I know wife will not agree that I need a new gun as I already have 31 long guns but a guy can't have too many.

I need ideas: (HELP)
The gun will be used for moose, We hunt from boats ALL the time and think a stainless would be the way to go. I have found a clip helpful in the past. I have seen the Browning with clip that attaches to a floor plate but do not know much about them, ideas. I would also like to get a much shorter 7mm than I hve now (Parker Hale 1200C).
Oh yes, I will hve to put glass on it to........

If anybody has sugguestions PLEASE I am open. I have until next fall but would like to get used to it ASAP.

Sorry I don't have any thoughts on your moose gun, just had to say Hey to a fellow Parker Hale shooter. Most of the time guys have never heard of em'. I've had a 06' for about 20 years now, darn fine weapon.

.300 Win Mag or a .338 are both very *range friendly* guns and have the power to drop any moose with a clean shot... neither one are a whole lot of fun to shoot continuosly at a target.

I no longer have a .338, the .300 I have I built myself .. I have no idea which direction to point you for a factory rifle.

For a scope I prefer adjustable 3x9... scopes too powerful are tough to get a moving (or still) target into at closer range (not all shots are 500 yards on large animals)

Rem 673 in 350 rem mag. Short,light, and will hit hard. If you reload even better. The only negative is not availabe in stainless, and has a laminated wood stock. It would still be a heck of a good choice.

Here is another vote for the .338.

Remington 700 in stainless is a nice rifle, and has the detachable clip.

I just bought a 270. Is this too light a gun if I ever decide to moose or elk hunt? Thanks!

Many elk and moose have been shot with a 270. Use good bullets such a Nosler Partitions, Barnes X bullets, Swift A-Frames, etc. I am partial to the Barnes bullets my self.

Bullet placement above all else is the key. A 270 bullet behind the shoulder and through the ribs will kill elk and moose dead all day long.

I prefer the 338 as there is a bit more mass should I hit the shoulder bones on the way in. A spooked elk can go a LONG way with a bullet in the vitals. This rifle I have shoots very well, and I do not mind the recoil.

Weatherby .340 mag! Flat and hard hitting, I would highly recommend it!

I will go and have a look at that Browning Abolt, sounds interesting as does that Remington 673. Never heard of that one YET.

I was looking at a Remington Model 7 in the new .300 ultra mag the other day, and it was one cute little package. Stainless steel and it was outfitted with a laminate thumbhole stock. It was in a Gander Mountain in the north end of the cities, I think in Columbia Heights.
The choice of scope they put on it wouldn't have been mine - but it was nifty. Just from the literature, looks like the .300 would have plenty of snort to down a bull.

I second the Browning A-bolt. I have used one for years. 280 cal absolutely love it. You can get it in synthetic stock and stainless barrel. **** fine gun.
