  • Posted in thread: What to look for when buying a Mosin on 11-30-2015 at 02:26 AM
    The first thing to look for when buying a Mosin is some extra bucks. If you go for the cheapest
    ones, you'll most likely get one with the 'sewer pipe' barrel from corrosive ammo going through
    it.The b...

    At fifteen, I got a Mossberg 500 in 12 ga. for my birthday.At eighteen I bought my first rifle,
    a Marlin 1895G in 45-70 of course.

    The Tikka is exactly what I'm looking for, composite stock and all. It is to replace my Sauer
    202 (30-06) takedown. I can't bare to take it the woods anymore, it is to valuable and
    beautiful.Life is a...

    A lot of times they will block the rear of the magazine and install a short follower, so there
    is no advantage there.

    This one of the first things I noticed about the rifle. 7mm-08 but still a long action...humm
    interesting.The Tikka is the bargain model... With Sako, there are four actions sizes, if I
    remember corre...

    Humm? The 7MM-08 maybe a good choice. That said, for the reloader the 7X57 case is a far better
    choice. :) It was after all the father of our .30-06 case design. :)Nothing wrong with
    7mm-08.On the oth...

    I like the 7-08, and built one a while back. It just didn't do much of anything better than the
    6.5mm or 30 caliber rifles that I have. The way I look at it is: Whatever advantages or
    disadvantages th...

    Not making a comment, just an observation:Fans of 7.62mm and 6.5mm here - but nobody has a kind
    word to say about 7mm-08, almost exactly in the middle between the other two.If I couldn't
    decide betwee...

    I got it out to the range today, but the wind came up right about the time I got set up. - A
    cold, blustery wind! Yuk. fired a few rounds, but it soon became evident that I would be
    shooting no clove...

    I'd make sure that the barrel is good before I spent a single penny on anything else. Some, no
    a lot of the Mosin barrels are really, really bad from corrosive ammo use.Putting bells and
    whistles on a...
