Test today, 91/59 carbine with iron sights and shot from Lead Sled at 300m.:

Mosin 91/59 carbine with Pole ball LPS results: one group 7 inches, one group 5 inches

Pole LPS shot 8 to 10 inches out of my PU sniper at 300m last weekend and the rifle
hates it. Out of the snubby 91/59 it lands 5 inches with iron sights. Bore on this carbine
is frosty, and has tight muzzle. Just goes to show LPS is hot or cold for accuracy depending on the rifle. THe rear slider was on 300 and sure enough, it shoots point of aim at 300m.

Now I am wondering...what would that Mosin 91/59 carbine do at 300 or 600 meters shooting my 762x54R sniper match loads ?

In todays age of black rifles and pillar bedded , Night Force scope laden crew serve weapon size bolt action rifles on firing lines, there is no shortage of folks that will say "You can't do that"

We shall see what a 91/59 can do at 600 yds with match grade ammo. Never say Never.

I think the 91/59 gains a lot of accuracy because it does not have that bayonet assembly like a M44 which fouls up barrel harmonics

300 meters, NRA 18 inch 300 yd bullseye, suspect Pole LPS ammo, iron sights and 5 inch group ?
Maybe a bit more respect for Mosin carbines is in order around here ! They are indeed relevant at 300 meters !

I shot at 600 yds yesterday with this rifle with same LPS and Heavy ball as my 300m test last week.

Those interested in the results, pls contact me via message or email .

With 228 reviews and only 3 members interested in accuracy, there is no need to further discuss accuracy . This is a plain jane 91/59 and as collector standards go: nothing interesting.

Shooters standards ...well, different story
