      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 .

Want a cantlever rifled slug barrel for Remington 1100

Recommended Posts

Tinkhamtown

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.

gander mtn will probably have 1 and they will match cabelas price. I'm gussing your talking about the remington copper slugs even the rem barrels say not to shoot them? I havn't figured that out myself rem. slugs, rem. barrel dont work together?

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.

      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.

      VG, Good bite most days now! All minnows for me. jigs or lindys. Chubs, shiners, and pike suckers. Found walleyes from 8' to 40' yesterday. Cliff

      Thanks for chiming in and sharing how the river has been treating you lately. They sure are fun to catch. I am hoping to get out again this weekend for some more smallie action. Hopefully they are still near where I was able to find them last weekend....

      I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam.  I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week.  Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset.  I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water.  There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water.  Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash.  In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank.  Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig.   I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time.  Caught 6 in a couple hours.  Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye.   So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles.  And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in.   If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles.  Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks.  I normally use a jig and a tube.  And there's no mistaken them when they hit.   Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.

      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?
