    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.

    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??

    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!

    Geeeeeew opaww,

    that is one killer combo=rifle,ammo,shooter...not in that order:eek:

    when you post/Case: Factory loads For the Dragunov. does that mean surplus sniper ammo? it works in that rifle,what ever kind it is?:D

    i feel bad for the dumb SOB that tries to trespass.

    range report?...more like property management;)

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