I am somewhat embarrassed to show the pic but what the hell.

Center was a 5 shot group over all about a 2-21/2 inch group maybe close to a 3Ē group.

Bottom was a fair group, probably the best out of them all.

Left not to bad but could be better.

Top about the same as the left group.

Right was surprise to me I shot the bottom hole first, the next shot hit the top and I said dam So I aimed at the first hole of the three and Iíll be dammed if I didnít hit right in between the two holes.

Nice report and great shooting. Guess that settles the "is the Mosin accurate" questions...not bad for a 75 year old rifle.

very nice for light bullets. im still of the opinion the mosin needs a heavier bullet the twist is 1:9 on both of mine. i know my old remington 700 in 308 with 1:10 liked 168grn.

got a pic of the shootin iron??

That's pretty good shootin' for some old iron.

I would be thrilled if I could shoot any of my MNs as well. I.m working on free floating as we speak.If that doesn't work I'm gonna try some pressure points. I may have to work on the eyes first though. Anyway Nice shootin Opaww!

Yes which accounts for a tighter group then the 180gr junk ammo I got
