Hi folks!

Always before I had shot my Soviet Mosin M91/30 prone or offhand. Today I rested it on a pile of shale at 85 yards on my private shooting range. This was the results. I am very happy with my Mosin!http://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/35015_227999057338010_1383750302_n.jpg

This 1 inch group was at 85 yards! http://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-snc7/483825_227999014004681_544600392_n.jpg

The 4 shot group was the left two shots at 50 and the right two shots at 85.http://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/554972_227999110671338_287039468_n.jpg

What do you think, pretty good for a Mosin?
I think I won't be selling it! :) http://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn1/45686_227999164004666_1827787263_n.jpg

That's pretty good! People ask me all the time if my M44 is accurate. My response is always, " yeah, it's minute of grapefruit."

" yeah, it's minute of grapefruit.

:D Mine is a little better than that, but grapefruits are still fun to shoot! I shot a 4 inch clay with my Mosin. It pretty much evaporated. :)

85 yards just seems so strange. I've never been to a range that had an 85 yard course. 75, yeah, 85, no.

It's my own range and it doesn't have a 85 yard marker. Thats just where the pile of shale was. :)

Looks like a good shooter!

He just said he had 85 yards on his private range... that may be the max.

No I have 100 yards. But I didn't have a rest at 100. :)

So was I here. A Finn Captured, SA stamped barrel, 91-30. 5 Rounds of that wicked green lacquered Czech milsurp, at fifty yards. (About the best my old eyes will do without optics)

Is that a Finn rifle? Usually the Finn rifles have a dark stock like that. Finn rifles tend to be more accurate. I am a Finn rifle junkie so i should know...chris3

I shot some more to-day. I didn't shoot as well, the best group was 3 inches. But it was really windy to-day. :)

I used to fancy myself a pretty good shot. That you can shoot a M/N like that says more about your skills than it does about the accuracy of the rifle.

Good shooting.
