You want help? First, try to refrain from pissing everybody in the

universe off by abusing the world's vaguest thread title "help".

You want to schmuck up a question like that? Fine.

The answer is YES. WE have an idea.

Are you getting the impression your own medicine sucks yet, OP?

Mosin Nagant usually about $100 ammo is super cheap you might have to do a little work on it but it's pretty much a russian 308 they're older rifles.

NATO= 7.62X51 (basiclly 308)
Mosin= 7.62X54R

Mathmaticly speaking there pretty close but if you don't have a ton of money its a good solution

That was the late Jack O'Conner. I still have his book, The Complete Book of Rifles and Shotguns, first published in 1961. I am 60 now and I got the book when I was 12. When I was 16, I got my first real rifle, a .270, all because of Jack O'Conner.

I have a mossin nagat in a carbine version. 7.62X54 would the shorter barrel make a difference??

The shorter barrel from my experience does not really effect the power of the round that much, it still has plenty of power to take down deer or even hogs. Most of the accuracy depends on how good of a shot you are, I've shot a M44 and the 91/30 at 100yrds and had some good groups with both.
