Sellier and Bellot hunting rounds in 7.62x54r are almost dead-on spec to the same companys 150 gr 30-06 hunting rounds. I was always told it falls between .303 brit and 30-06. Very close to the .308 in terms of hitting power (not ballistics). The last 19 point bull moose I took at 250 yards did nor complain about it being underpowerd.

thanks Dave, when I shot the rifle for the first time yesterday the recoil "felt" to me more like a .308 than an 06. Of course recoil on my end isn't a good gauge as to hitting power on the other. It's nice to hear about your moose as I thought I might hunt with the mosin also. I'll check out the ammo you mentioned. thanks again, ron

The Mosent nagant rifles are good --- I have 4 --- (M-91) --- (M-91-30) --- (M39) and an (M44) --- The M-44 spits flame everywhere barrel --- bolt --- and because of the short barrel it kicks like A mule --- All are fun to shoot.

bring a flashlight and inspect the barrel (if they allow you to) and remove the bolt to get a better view. most of these are wwII leftovers and were made and fired only a few times to sight them in. i own one and i shot it the day after i got it. so accurate. so smooth. you'll love everything about it.everyone says it kicks like a mule, and it hurts so much. dont listen to them. its not true at all. it kicks less than a 30-30. and even with the steel butt plate no bruise after 200+ rounds in a day

Agreed, I thought I was going to have shoulder pains after all the talk when I was looking for one.
I think the weigh of the rifle with all the metal and wood soaks up some of the kick, But its just a guess.
On another board, A gentleman said he would buy me an MN rifle if I hadn't purchased another one within the year...
I have 11 days left, I may have to let him know I am ready to take ownership from him

Looking for a Mosin Nagant.

Starting page 2 Army of 2 says it.

Best of luck with your MN!

Only Mosin that kicks and breaths fire is the rifle used in Nam short barrel M-44 or M-38 the rest of the Mosin line are rather mild due to the longer barrel where the longest barrel is M-91 (the beginning) bolt action and the end being M-44 or M-38 --- If you fire A m44 or m38 you will know it.

You forgot the 91/59!!! They modified them into the 1960's for use by 3rd world countries.

Can they be improved ? Just looking for something to horse around with. any info you can give me will be appreciated.
I believe budsguns.com has them for 92 right now.
