Mosin Nagant generally has 1-4 MOE (1"-4" group at 100 yards). Ammo is cheap and plentiful.

Steyr ammo is harder to find, and more expensive. Not sure about the accuracy. I have heard they kick pretty hard.

Personally, I like the Mosin since that is the one I have experience with. At the price you can get them, why not get both?

My friend has a mosin. It's ok. I like it. The bolt is really clunky but still, overall good

When you say ammo is cheap you mean easy to find too? Lol

You can usually find 7.62x54mmR for the Mosin for about $90 (plus shipping and taxes) per 440 round can.

8x56mmR for the Steyr is a little over a dollar a round and can be a little hard to find at times.
The Steyr also was chambered in 8mm Mauser (8x57mm), and 8x50mmR Mannlicher. The 8mm Mauser can be found pretty easily for a low price, but 8x50mmR is rare (did a google search, couldn't find any).
The 8x56mmR is the most common chambering for the Steyr.

If you get the Steyr, I recommend reloading to bring the cost of ammo down unless it's a 8mm Mauser. If it's an 8mm Mauser, your good to go.

7.62x54R is still used as an MG and a long range rifle round- there is a ton of it still fairly cheap. No nation is still making the 8x56R as a military round. It is going to get harder to find pretty quick.

Thank you for your help I've decided on the mosin but I can't find it at any LCg and online makes it 50$ more

Bud's Gun Shop has some listed right now for $129 or so. It's a great price with how hard they are for people to keep in stock of late.

I was deciding between those same two rifles a while ago. I had my heart set on an M95, but now that reloading supplies are hard to get locally, I've opted to wait it out.

Mosin. I haven't fired a Steyr 95 yet, but I do own a 91/30. All I've got to say is that it is my favorite rifle and ammo is cheap and easy to find. Good luck :-)

Can't find anything in stock under 200 thought they were 100 guess before this Obama crap! Any other war type rifles that are cheap? I love the history of them, but I also want something to plink around with!?
