Until today my long-shot ever taken was 115 yards with the scope And bipod. Today with my mosen With iron sites no bipod I can now say I have shots 234 yards and hit a to leader bottle of soda and for some odd reason I was able to pull the bullet out of the side of the mountain so I'll give you a picture that too

That's a nice shot; especially cool that you got the bullet.

If someone introduces them to a comparable caliber and shows them how to hold the gun, relax and breath it really isn't extreme recoil. As long as you think it is, it will be. I can't realisticly see much, if any more recoil than .308, 30.06, 8mm. I think my 30/30 has more felt recoil than my Mosins.
I have been mostly shooting trap for the 30 years and a litttle bit with pistols, I have been thinking about getting a mosin or a mauser to start with rifles. How does the recoil compare to a moderate 12 guage recoil. I screwed up my shoulder this fall just as was starting to think about getting a rifle.

It's hard to compare to a shotgun being that you have different loads with different amounts of kick to them Comparing birdshot to buckshot then to 1 ounce slugs

It's not too bad but it has a metal butt plate so you feel the recoil a little bit more than you would in a modern shotgun

If I had to compare to a shotgun it would probably be a medium powered buckshot load or a high-powered trap load

I have no experience with the Mauser of any type just the mosin

Do not shoot in the air with a rifle like you would a shotgun that's my only Advice

Thanks, that gives me a little bit of an idea, we used to load some pretty hot loads for shoot-offs at longer distances. If it is not much more recoil than that it should be no problem. Going to a gun show this weekend, I may try to pick one up.

I use to test fire all firearms that were safe to shoot that had been confiscated by my Sheriffs office and surrounding counties. I never felt uncomfortable with the mosin, that being said I only shoot it off hand not from a bench. I believe an 1-3/4 shot load from a shotgun will kick much harder than the rifle, if gun weights are similar. I have shot my .45-70 on the bench and been very uncomfortable while shooting it from a sitting position or offhand is pretty tame, just pushes you instead of slapping. While the 7.62 x55r is a full power load it is more in the area of a .303 than a .30-06 . It just takes getting used to, and beware old ammo I had numerous slow fires along with just failing to fire. In fact it is the only round that has ever slow fired for me.

It's what happens when you pull the trigger, and the primer does not immediately cause the powder charge to burn. Instead, it burns slowly before igniting.
A normal shot is *pull trigger, BANG*. A slow fire is *pull trigger, one thousand one, BANG*, or some variable amount of time. The real indicator is that you distinctly hear the firing pin strike the round before the bang.
