Nice shooting. However, trust me and give that Brown Bear away! It's crap at short range let alone mid range.

Get some Russian Match (182g) from the 60's and you will hit the target every time at 500.

For some reason my rifle likes the Brown Bear ammo. Dead on accuracy, I have another video where i hit a 1 gallon jug at 400 yards on the 3rd shot iron sights. Also when i was testing the accuracy of the brown bear ammo at 250 yards I made a 2.4" 3 shot group. Maybe it's just my rifle but it really like this brown bear stuff. However I have been on the look out for the Russian match ammo to try out, it's hard to find at a decent price nowadays. Thanks for watching!

Lately I have watched alot of Mosin videos and I'm thinking about getting one of those rifles, but I haven't decided if I want the carbine or the rifle. They seem to be pretty nice shooters, I like all old military rifles and would like to add one to my collection. Also I believe ammo if fairly cheap for them and I also reload so finding ammo wont be an issue after I aquire some brass.

Nice shooting!

I live the MN. I have an M44, but have been thinking about getting a 91/30 while they're still around on the cheap. I'll have to keep my eyes out for one.

Ron, you can get both the carbine and rifle for about $300-$400 total outlay. The carbine is great, fun to shoot, kicks a bit, and the blast is awe-inspiring. Just as accurate as the rifle out to about 250 yards.
