Now you are just rubbing it into my eyes! lol! Outstanding shooting.When I was looking to buy the SVD someone gave me a piece of advice I followed and it really paid off.....that piece of advice was to shoot nothing else but the SVD for 12 months and get to know it inside out and this, in conjunction with quality handloads, is the result......
5-shot group shot from a rest at 100m, .311" 150gr PPU SPBT/PPU brass/Vihtavuori N140 powder

5-shots from '44 Izhevsk PU , 100m from a rest with the same bullet etc as above but using Ramshot Big Game powder .Steel case is for size reference.

I also work with a gentleman that served in the VDV in Afghanistan from '87 to '89 and he has given me a lot of advice as well, I actually took him to my range on a guest day and his eyes lit up like a kid on Christmas morning when he saw the SVD and I can tell you he can still shoot! :thumbsup:
I really have to get my reloading dies for 7.62x54r. I got tons of saved brass already, so time to get serious! ha!
