It sounds to me that you got a decent Mosin. When this ammo shortage BS ends one of these days, you should be able to get some decent ammo. In the meantime get anything you can shoot, and get to the range.I haven't posted here very much but I had my mosin looked at and I was advised it should operate pretty good. Me and a friend took it to the gun range that had some gongs at 200 yards and with just the plain iron sights I was able to hit the gong 2/5 times. My friend was at a gun show and happened to notice they had a replica mosin nagant sniper rifle scope so I told him to go ahead and get it for me. So after getting it mounted we went back to the range and I was able to hit the gong four out of five times using some modern monarch steelcase ammo. He had me shoot six rounds with some brass casing he had and he said he was going to make me some sniper ammo but I don't know exactly what that means. The gong at 200 yards is a 1 ft diameter gone so I feel pretty good about the accuracy of this gun for what it is I'm fully aware modern rifles can shoot much more accurate at further distances but what are you guys think for using just standard off-the-shelf ammunition being able to hit a 12-in gong at 200 yd 4 out 5 shots. I think it's pretty good but I would like some feedback on what y'all think
Any suggestions on another ammo to look at ... It seems my options are the old corrosive or the modern monarch stuff
