    Mosin impresses yet again

    Finally got around to getting the ol shooter out with some crimped handloads to put through, very very happy with the results. First 3 shots are to the right of centre, wound the old wever microtrac 2 clicks to the right. Main group above centre is a 5 shot group with either a flyer or I simply pulled it, very heavy,creepy,long pull on a trigger that feels like it is breaking aound 13 lbs. Name:  P1010751 - Copy.JPG

    ^this guy. Where you been? I still want to "build" a scoped mosin, but i dont want to put a modern scope on it. Anyone have any experience with the PU style "sniper" scopes from somewhere like Kalinka optics?

    I use a older weaver steel tube 4x microtrac, very clear glass but I struggle to see the 10mm bullseye on a 100 meter target. Might go to a vari power weaver next as would like to shoot the ol mosin out to 500 if poss.
