Mosin Groupings?


August 7, 2007, 02:05 PM
Can anyone give me data on their groupings with Mosin Nagant rifles? Please specify your model (91/30, 38 or 44) and whatever else you feel pertinent (i.e. ammo, weather, wind, etc.)

1920 Izzy 91/30. I don't get this one out to the range much lately, but last time I did, this is what I did with 150gr Hornady .312 dia SP over 39gr of H4895, OAL 2.850. Works well.

You didn't say how far away your target was

With any of my Mosins, that would be about 25 feet! :p

First four pics are results from my 1942 B barrel Finn M39.

Last two pics are results from my 1942 Sako Finn M39.

All targets were shot at 100 yards with irons.

Bought a M39 about 10 yrs ago. Looked like hell when it came it but bore was excellent and all nos. matched. I use a 3X3 inch black square as a target at 100 yds and it will keep all rounds in that square if I'm having a decent day. Use some brass cased Chinese ammo that was literally dirt cheap at that time. Glad I bought 6K rounds of the stuff when it was available.

100 yards, benched.

All mine on that 3 inch square is done benched.

1 inch groups. VKT and a 1968 Finnish M-39. Glass-bedded and free-floated barrels. Both will do moa with Czech Silver Tip and Polish light ball surplus ammos. Both have Darrell's scout scope mount and I use Tasco Pro-Class 6X pistol scope when shooting.

I'd have a trouble shooting an M-39 like your B barrel. Sooo pretty!

10-12 inches at 100 yards off of a sleeping bag. I can put 3 rounds in under an inch using my enfield and the same rest setup.

I'll be selling my mosin as soon as I can.

My Izzy 91/30 does like 8" groups at 100 yards. :uhoh:

The sights are hard to see, but it makes up for that with a rough, gritty trigger.

I have several Mosins that can hold 3" at 100y from a bench, with milsurp ammo, if I'm having a good vision day.:)
Some others.....well, not so good.

My M44 with Bulgarian heavy ball wll put 5 in 5" at 100 yds.

As someone said before "minute of Nazi" :p
