Default Got one dead with the Mosin

First off I have to give credit when credit is due, so thank you Wisconsindeer for helping me figure out how to get a scope mounted on my Mosin. around 7am this morning I saw what i thought were 2 doe, and since WI DNR confused me i ended up purchasing a second antler-less tag. One shot and the deer immediately tipped over, not a step, not a 10 yard sprint, just right over. Turned out to be a nubby buck which kind of sucked because I would have rather it grown older but hey there's meat for my freezer and that's what i really care about. and because every thread is useless without pics. look below. and good luck to everyone else out there!

Congrats on the deer. I also got a nubbin buck this morning at about 6:50, with a Ruger 77/44 though.

Congrats on the deer! Puttin' one in the freezer is what it's all about.

Dug my '36 Tula out of the safe the other day and fired it. Have been using other 'toys' the past couple of years. Moisin's are great deer rifles.

Default Had to help with a Mosin...

The other week when I was Range Officer a guy shooting a Mosin had it jam up and wouldn't open the bolt after firing surplus ammo. I was called over and yep it was jammed. I asked the guy if he wanted to pound on it and he said go ahead. A hard strike with a gloved hand opened the bolt and cleared the fired case REAL well. He didn't realize that he wasn't using a rifle that sometimes needed to be talked to. The rifle was good as new afterwards.

That'll happen with a Mosin that hasn't been cleaned well. The Russians stored these rifles in cosmoline, which needs to be cleaned out real well when you buy one.
