Default 91/30 PU repro

A few years ago I bought a PU repro sniper. I pulled the rifle out yesterday to take a closer look at it. Come to find out it is a true 1942 Iszevsk PU Sniper that has a post war mount and scope (late 1950's) on her. Gave her a little workout w/ Yugo heavy ball and some 1949 Soviet light ball. At 100 yards there was no real difference in POI. Scope was zeroed within 2", it was a little high. I think it is going to be going out more often now. Not bad for the $369.00 I paid.

That is a purdy gun...and in very nice condition, too. I have yet to get off my butt and order a Mosin-Nagant "sniper" rifle. They have them on the Classic Arms site. I've got 2 Mosin-Nagants but they're not scoped.

On an off note, how does your PSL shoot? I just got some burrs filed off the scope mount on mine so I haven't taken it out yet.

Thanks, The underside of the forestock is bruised from being rested on hard surfaces and it was wrapped in something that took some of the finish off the handgaurd also. It will stay as is. I shoot 182gr Yugo HB out of her. Most accurate ammo I've found. .311 180gr over IMR4064 does the trick for hunting rounds. 150gr work for under 200 yard shots, but are not as accurate at distance.

The PSL shoots well w/ the right ammo. 147..150gr bullets only, as heavy ball will hammer the action. The scope is calibrated for light ball anyway. 1980's Hungarian silver tip and 1980's Soviet light ball shoot the best. I have some Polish light ball that is still in a sealed can, so maybe in a few years...
For reloading H335 works real well with .311 or .312 150gr SP bullets for hunting. 4064 is more accurate, but does not cycle the action as reliably. The rifle is hard on brass, so keep that in mind.
W/ the surplus I listed, I'm getting 4" groups (5rnds) at 400 yards. I love the PSOP 4x scope. The range finder on the lower left is awesome.
