      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 .

Jamming shells ?

Recommended Posts

big drift

it seems when I shoot older 3" shells in T or BBB my 1300 will not shuck out the hull. After a few moments it will eject. Is there something in older shells that cause swelling upon firing or do i have a more serious problem i am not aware of. It seems no problems w/ new rounds and I try to shoot up the old first. these are several years old that I received from a freind. my gun seems to be working order and i clean it frequently to keep out dirt and debris.

Any ideas?

I had some trouble with some 3" shells, that were probably old, & even a few 2 3/4" shells that were really old (15+ years)jamming in my 870. I finally took it to a gunsmith & he said the chamber had gotten a little burred up & he smoothed it out with emery cloth. It happened another 2-3 times that year, but now I've had no trouble in the last couple of years since then. The gun was probably about 5 years old at the time.

Big Drift - Had the same problem with a Rem 870. Sent it in and they polished up the chamber. No probs since, the shells expand after being fired and thus the ejection problems. Not a major concern.

This can be caused by 2 factors.
The first pits in the chamber will hold the casing when the brass expands and make it extremely difficult to extract.
The second could be from shooting old rounds that has tarnished brass. Again it expands and can stick to the chamber walls.

Big Drift. I have a 1300 also. I also have the same problem. My 1300 hates spitting out Federal shells, but the Winchester shells come out like a champ.
