Brought out my Mosin for the first time today after getting it last weekend at the Syracuse gun show. Really it was a test to see if I got all the cosmoline off everything. I was going to go to the 100 yard range and really just see how I liked shooting it, but I ended up shooting at 200 because there was an hour long wait. I was using the spam can ammo and I actually managed to get a couple on the paper and even one in the black using irons. All I have to do now is get myself a spotting scope ,a recoil pad and a damn ice pack for my shoulder because that thing really kicks!
