      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 .

I seen Cabela's ad with a rifled 22" cantlever with a Remington scope for $219 but when I called all they had was 870 barrels left. Found Remington barrel at Walmart for $249 but they had to order,Hasting barrel for $300 with warning not to shoot brass slugs, $369 Remington barrel at Gander Mtn.

New or used doesn't matter and I am in no rush. Any one know where I can find one for a good price. Are there other brand rifled slug barrels that fit on a Remington 1100 and do they shoot good? I want a scope on my deer gun. Thank you.

The older I get the more mistakes I make. Thanks for the correction. Brass... copper...Tink

Why can't they be shot in these rifled slug barrels? I though that is what they were designed for.

I just checked the box and the info sheet that my Remington rifled slug barrel came with and it doesn't say anything about not using copper slugs. As a matter of fact they recommended using the Remington premier copper slugs for the best performance.

I got my barrel at Mills for $129. (not cantilever)

I have a Mossberg fully rifled barrel on my Remington and it shoots real well. That's an 870 but I think they make an 1100 too. Make sure you put a shotgun scope on it too, they are made to take the recoil... A cheap riflescope won't handle it.

Ditto on the scope comment. If you plan to shoot any of the 1900 to 2000 FPS sabots, I would go to a 24" barrel with as fast as twist as you can get. Cabelas' website sells a new barrel from American Barrel that is a 1:26 twist for $189. The problem is that they are backordered for several months. You need the tighter twist and length to stabilize those slugs at 100 yards or more. I had an 870 with a Hastings 1:35 twist that couldn't group the fast slugs at 100 yards. I bought a Benelli Nova with a 1:28 twist and I get 4" groups at 100 yards with the Hornady SST's. I killed a deer with this gun last weekend. With that barrel and a scope, you will have a 200 yard effective killing range. If you don't plan to shoot over 100 yards, the other barrels will work fine. I just like the option of shooting farther should I need it. I hope this helps.

My 870 with Hastings rifled seems to do alright with the Win Partition Golds, but shooting them makes one a glutton for punishment. smile.gif

I've been eyeballing those new American barrels, but thinking instead just to go with one of the single-shot 20ga for the stand, and use either the Rem 870 or Moss 500 with front Firesite and rear ghost ring along with plain old pumpkin balls for the drives...

Back to the topic for the OP.... if you don't need it right away, I'd probably get in line for that American barrel if you are set on using the 1100.

When you say copper slugs, are talking about sabots? I have a an 870 with a rifled slug barrel and all I shoot though it is remington sabots.

Yes, the Remington CopperSolids were not recommended to use in some barrels. I've never heard why, but it seems I read something that the early CopperSolids were different than the ones they make now and what ever it was, is not an issue any more. Consider that a rumor because I have not been able to find the information I thought had read.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Bought a couple of baitcaster reels..my first....Lew's BB1 speed spool and Daiwa Tatula CT R. After about two weeks of daily practice casting in the river behind our house....lots of backlashes(birds nests)...I gotta say, I've come to love casting with these reels....much more accurate than my spinning reels. Any other baitcasting fans out there?  If so, what do you use?

      On the lighter side, I am 'SpoonBillSlayer' on that other site. For whatever reason years ago when I joined these sites I used two different userids. Both odd duck names that fit an odd duck! I just wanted to get the new updates out on this mess, it just seems like the only people being notified of it are those in  lake assoc's.  We'll see what happens.

      I've massaged the trigger finger this summer by shooting the sporting clays league at Rice Creek.  Good way to make sure I got out! Started a little rough as to be expected but got back the groove toward the end.  Finished the summer at a charity shoot with 39/40.  That felt good.

This year, grant funding is being awarded to nine projects in the coastal area: Researchers at the University of Minnesota will monitor and analyze measures designed to reduce erosion of bluffs adjacent to North Shore streams. Results will inform guidance on design criteria for future projects. $35,900. The Arrowhead Regional Development Commission will conduct an economic impact assessment of paved trails within the coastal area; determine the number of users of four popular trails (Duluth Lakewalk, Willard Munger State Trail, Gitchi-Gami State Trail, and St. Louis River Trail), and simultaneously conduct large-scale survey of trail-user habits and impacts on coastal economy. $11,500. Laurentian Resource Conservation and Development is planning to host a two-day conference for academia and coastal managers to bridge a gap between research results and practices of watershed assessment, protection and stream restoration. $23,000. Researchers at the University of Minnesota will increase scientific understanding of success rates of coastal forest seeds. Results will inform coastal managers for improved adaptive management and help determination whether coastal trees should be protected and treated as a unique seed collection zone. $98,875. Duluth Children’s Museum in collaboration with Positive Energy Outdoors will create a year round, innovative outdoor science, technology, engineering, and math active learning experience for children, particularly those in low-income households with limited access. $33,100.

      Second the guide.  Fishing a lake in the north is totally different from fishing Mississippi or lake Zumbro or other lakes in the southern half of the state.  Otherwise you should look at the best place to launch your boat to be close to good fishing.  Rainy is a very big lake.. Ask in http://fishingminnesota.com/forums/forum/98-rainy-lake-fishing-reports-hunting-events/ the rainy lake forum.

      Unless they find a way to stop all the kinds of waterfowl from swimming, diving, eating and pooping from lake to lake. It's never going away.
