I'll definitely take a look at the trigger and see where i can remove some of the rust.
I've been looking around locally for soft point ammo for the Mosin and just can't seem to find it. Even online I've had some issues. Best I could find is the Brown Bear stuff (203gr JSP) and the Winchester stuff (180gr SP) from cheaper than dirt, but man does it add up. Going to have to pick one of them I think to try out, unfortunately they ship from different warehouses so you have to pay additional shipping
But I'm still leaning toward the Mosin as long as I can shoot the appropriate ammo accurately enough at 100yrds
