PostSubject: A little fun with the Mosin   August 27th 2016, 1:10 am

Shes a hell of a shooter! I had a great time with the M44 at 100 yards today. I mounted a KonusPro 6-24x44 scope that my dad bought me for my birthday one year. Rock solid mount and sporter bolt was used. Now I just want to order one of those Arc Angel stocks for it to top it off. REALLY pleased with how well that russian FMJ ammo shoots as well. Its a heavy rifle though thats for sure. I will weigh it tomorrow but i am guessing around 11lbs with that stock. This one has the 20" barrel but the better made, Hungarian model. Beautifully machined and the bolt is nice and slick.

Not bad for a $135 rifle huh!

Was out at the Whittington Center with a friend and brought the Mosin along. Started at 100 yards then moved out to 200 yards to get it dialed in. It has to be 3" high at 100 to be dead on at 200 yards with the russian ammo. About right for the caliber.

This was 5 shots of the kneel and a rolled up sweat shirt. I never bring a damn rest and end up always saying.. Man! why didn't we bring a rest!

I have a better group on my friends phone, but it was only a 3 shot group.





After that, we went out to 300 yards and were shooting the rams off the target stands. I tried about 6 shots at 550 and think I am very close to being on using my 4th dot in the scope. The wind was pretty good at around 15mph, west to east and at that yardage, its a game of hit or miss. Next time I will bring my rest and have better control over her. Even at 200 yards, I was getting 1 1/2" groups just kneeling down and using a rolled up sweatshirt for a rest on top of the table. Certainly not a good rest but doable.

Not bad Jon they are a lot of fun to play with.  I have a Finn M-39 and that rifle made me some money when it would outshoot  guys with scopes on their rifles at 100yds.

The best modification to those rifles is if you can set-up the trigger like the Finns did makes a huge difference.

Yep, I installed a Timney on it last year that I got for  Christmas. Next up grade is that nice ATI stock with pistol grip.

How far are u away from the center Jon. Ive always wanted to go there one time and shoot some steel but I havent done it yet. Took the 38-55 out yesterday along with the mini-14 in 300 BO and had a blast shooting clay pigeons on the hill side. I forgot how much fun the levergun is plinking with irons at 50 yds. Al
