Do you have the new bulletproof monitor from Samsung?? Sweet!
All kidding aside it looks like the handloads are working out nicely for ya. Well done! Looks like grouping better than half the size of your best surplus load.
Any pics of the rifle?? We like gun Pr0n

I'd say the size of the grouping on the Russian light ball isn't too far off your hand loads - just needs some scope adjustment to put it on target-centre. If it's really cheap might be the best choice for plinking.
Before I compliment you on your shooting with iron sights, what size are the rings on the targets?
