Here's my setup - I'm shooting at the 200 yard target. I put a circle around my target in the picture, to make it easier to find. 3rd from the right, back 3 rows. I had recently put a Smith-Sights front sight on it, the adjustable-post target model. I wanted to zero the rifle. I'm using PPU "Rifle Line" (the cheaper stuff, not match) factory 150gr soft point ammo. I pulled the bullets, neck-sized, and standardized the powder charge at a hand-weighed 48.0gr of the factory powder. Then I re-seated the bullets to a given length and used a Lee FCD to give a light crimp to the neck - as close to the factory crimp as I could see. After several shots to get on paper, then some fiddling with the adjustments, I shot my final 3 shot group. Mind you, this is 200 yards, iron sights, and I'm in my 7th decade: That's about 2-5/8" 3-shot group. A bit over 1 MOA. It may not be bragging material, but I'll take it. Now I'm wondering what it will do with match bullets. Some folks out there claim the old Mosins won't shoot. Hah !
