Default Mid winter fix.

The temperature has been below 20 or about a week and a half and mostly below 15. These old bones decided it was time to make a quick appearance at the range when the Temp. reached 37. Not being pleased with my Mosins groups since I started using the the spare bolt I put the bent handle on, I reintroduced the origional bolt. The results were very pleasing. I guess Ill have to get used to the origional straight bolt. It's not a tack driver but it will drive Railroad spikes. It has a 2-7 scope on it but this was shot at 4 pwr.

That's good shooing in any temperature.

Thanks CA, I almost gave up on trying to improve this rifles group but always thought it could shoot better than I can shoot it. Now I'm curious how it would do with modern ammo. I've spent so much range time on this rifle, my go to guns are gathering dust.
