    Store only had 91's and 44's
    The 91 doesnt fit in my car so I went with the 44.

    Im not all that impressed.

    I would happily of returned it. But they said no returns.

    Thats a pic of a Corbon DPX hollow point after being shot at phone books.
    It managed to get thru 5 3" books but landed up in the W section of the 5th book. I expected it to stop before.

    Mosin destroyed 21" of phone books without a problem

    I don't really like shooting my M44. The bayonet is a bit of a pain in the ass. That's why I got an M38 ::hsd:

    It's just cheap fun. You shouldn't expect much out of a $100 rifle. And with surplus corrosive ammo it's not going to break the bank shooting it.

    Sportsman's Guide is a good place to start. You can also find it at gun shows. Check here

    It was like $30 per 440 a couple of weeks ago. It looks like the price is going up on this stuff, too :hs:

    Mosins are fun to shoot when you want just a BIG BOOM.

    I got a bunch from the shop I bought my mosin from. 1.60 for a box of 20, old Czech surplus.

    Most of the actual gun stores i've gone to have opened tins of all kinds of surplus ammo.

    I just got a different cleaning rod for the 91/30. The damn thing STILL wont reach from the breech with teh damn t-handle. So i need to clean the other way.

    I love my mosin. Cheap ammo from Sportsman's guide, and its fun to shoot at gallon containers at the can range here.

    my friend just got a M38 Mosin today too.
