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 3” 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 I’ll be dammed if I didn’t 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.
