This M91/30 Mosin Nagant turned in a respectable performance at 200 yards with three types of heavy bullet 7.62x54r loads, including 20 of my own hand loads. I shot the rifle so much in this session the stock bolt retaining nut worked it's way loose and I had to repair it at home. This indicates to me that the retaining nut was probably not properly torqued during arsenal refurbishment. This rifle is stock and unmodified. It has always been a good shooter with heavy ball ammunition.

The stock dries out and the bolts/nuts shoot loose.

I wonder if 200 yards is a 'Sweet spot' with these rifles. One of my best sessions was with a Mosin at 200 yards and iron sights.

I don't know. I own several of these; bought them when they were $130 each. A couple of them are all over the paper with any load, but I have two rifles that just seem to have the right bedding, trigger, sights, etc. that make them nearly as accurate as my M1 Garand at 200 yards. Both are Izhevsk M91/30 rifles from the 1930's. The round receiver is a 1937 which favors the light ball ammo, then I have this shooter, a 1933 hex receiver that likes the heavier bullets.
