If you want to use your Mosin Nagant for home defense the only way to not get over penetration is to use this ammo.
Czech 7.62x54r hollow core

It is only a 44.8gr projectile(less than a .223) it won't go through a 2x4 unless you are right on top of it.
You could start a fire with the muzzle blast that comes off of this round so be careful around the furniture.
More info on this round.

Range report is coming soon, gotta find a day where it ISN'T raining in Florida to go. Will be taking the Nagant, A Mossberg .270, A Chinese SKS and a few other various weapons. Will try to take pictures and report when I go.

Default Range Report is here!

Finally a day of sun here in Florida. Someone lied when they said it was the Sunny state.. Well, here's the range report: Went Saturday down to the Gateway Rifle and Pistol Club. Took the Nagant, my grandfathers /270 Mossberg, a single action .22 pistol, a Cougar .40, and the crown jewel of the day: A Ruger Redhawk .44 Magnum. Let me just say that i've never seen so many gun veterans turn head and stop shooting at the sound of a single gunshot before. The Nagant performed admirably for having the front sight knocked off kilt, it shot a hand size grouping at 100 yards. Still needs some tweaking, but it's alot better than last time when it didn't even hit paper. The .270 shot a near perfect grouping at 50 yards, considering it's zeroed at 300. The .22 pistol is a tackdriver at 7 and 10 yards, shooting a small square of tape 6 shots in a row. The Cougar, I found out has a feed lip issue and a jamming issue with Winchester ball rounds, but loads and fires Federal and all other brands perfectly. That's about it on the range report, let me know if you have any tips or ideas on how to make it better for next time.

I'm going to have to look into those rounds, they look perfect for home defense or even just plinking in the yard.

You could mount the bayonet and scare them away. Don't know about you but if I saw 4 feet of rifle topped with 18" of steel coming at me I'd leave in a hurry...

Bayonet or not if you fired one round & the muzzle flash was enough to blind me and set half my clothes on fire no mater if I got hit or not I would turn & run.
