Default I did it

Hey guys, I just wanted to thank you for all your help. You were all a huge help in deciding to get one of these. It came with some nice little extras. I don't consider it a bad investment. Seeing as how it will be something I have forever if I should so choose. I'll try and upload some pics and maybe a range report if I can. I don't know with my darn computer these days. Just wanted to say thanks guys. =)

That was one of the first things I did with my 2 Mosin-Nagants after I got, and opened, the spam cans of Bulgarian 7.62 x 54r ammo. I'd heard horror stories from coworkers who had bought Mosin-Nagants which weren't much more use than a tent pole or fire wood.

the bullet on the x54r is about 1/4" longer than the x39 so it actually goes in about halfway.now if it would just stop raining so i can shoot this thing
