Sounds like maybe some wind was moving it @ 300. I can't think of a reason the Windage would be different at different ranges, except for that.

Try again when you're sure there is no wind and see what happens.

If the groups are consistent, readjust the sights. If not, readjust the shooter.

I'll take that advice next time I go out and see what happens. Hopefully its not the shooter. But ether way I will get it right. Thx for the info.

So I just put a new scope on the mosin. Haven't taken it out yet but was wanting advice on sighting it in. It's the aim 2-7x32.

The grease is called Cosmeline and it's an antitrust agent. Easily removed with mineral water.

Ive heard that mosin nagants are more accurate when fired with the bayonet open. Im not sure if its true but ive heard it from three or four different people.

Yes it was prooved to be true on the rifles that were sighted in with it attatched. But they were shooting high. And that's why most if them shoot realy high. Wat confuses me is mine shoots low. I just don't understand.
