Re: Anyone shoot a Mosin Nagant at long range?

I was planning to shoot this gun at 1000 yards this weekend but it ain't going to make it. Maxing out my turret and using the lowest mildot is only going to get me to 930 (estimated). So I guess I'll see how it does there. Will let you know.

    Very nice. Very pretty. How does she shoot? I like the paint job. Nice how it carries up the scope too. Looks great. Mine shoots a solid .75 Moa and I've shot many sub 1/2 Moa groups. Especially past 300. The SMKs really stabilize after 300. Shot a 4 shot group at 750 few weeks ago at 1.75". Not sure I can replicate that, but It will hold 4" pretty easy there. I knew I was hitting the gong but not sure where so after 4 shots I went out to see where I was hitting it. Decided not to shoot a fifth after seeing the group. Especially after getting up from the gun

    Awesome to see so many great reviews on the mosin. Mine is .5 moa But! I shoot mil surplus I pull the bullet remeasure the powder to 44
    Gr and put a 180 gr Sierra game king on top 2519 fps consistently. Lots of fun!

    Oh I use Russian surplus.

    Here is a really neat mosin project is stumbled across:

    *Almost finished* Mosin nagant project - The FAL Files

    This guy relocated the bolt handle, which allowed a better scope mounting solution.

    Saw this, as well and have been thinking it has some possibilities:

    2013 New Products | Archangel Manufacturing

    It's another option, at least.

    If I had some welding and machining skills, it would be a fun project to tackle. I don't, so I probably won't go there. But, I really enjoy seeing the creative things that people are doing with these homely old peasant's rifles.
