      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 .

jammed rounds/Federals

can it be luck?

Does anyone have problems with Federal shells jamming? I picked up a few boxes 2 years ago and they consanatly jam. I'm not sure what the exact nomenclature is, but they are 3" 1 3/8 oz. loads. Whether they are too long or to me it seems like the brass expands and does not eject. A stick or something similr would have to be rammed down the barrel to get them out. Not fun at first light with a good flight of birds! I shoot a Browning BPS 12 and a Remington 870. My buddy who I got them from had the same problem, he shoots a Bennelli. Normally I shoot 1 1/4 oz loads, but I thought the 1 3/8 oz with an improved choke might give me a denser pattern.

Never a problem in my Browning auto or Remington pump. In fact the only problem I had with one of those shells is one the didn't fire. That's about it.

I've only seen Federals jam a few times and they were both fired from Winchesters.

Not trying to say which is a better gun, but I have shot thousands of rounds, almost all Federal, through both my 870 and 1100 and never had a jam that was caused by the shell itself....a few from operator error...lol

Are you guys talking about shooting 1 3/8 oz or Federal shells in general? I normally shoot 3" 1 1/4 oz Remington,Federal,or Winchester. The price is right for me. The Federal 1 3/8 oz were given to me in the blind after several rounds continued to get stuck in the reciever after firing. My freind was shooting a Bennelli semi-automatic. I've had 0 problems with any shells prior to these. Give me some expensive 1 3/8 oz loads? Hell yea! Emptyed my gun and reloaded with my new expensive rounds, bang...stuck. Uhhh, can I borrow your ramming stick?

I usually buy nothing but federal too,
I've had this happen in my old Rem/ Model 11,
a few times , but not yet in the Benelli, but I've only had it out shooting a few times so far.
I was just assuming with the model 11, that it probably getten pretty worn by now as since my grandpa owned it, its been through many family members hands and gone through many boxes of shells

I used to shoot the 1 3/8oz Federal steel loads (before they got so expensive)in a Remington 11-87 and never experienced any problems.
