Here is my M41B entry, with Stalin's Voiceover!
Shooting starts at 2:00 mark.

I think I had the pointer a bit too far to the left and got on the trigger a little too quick unfortunately. Obviously I can’t blame the rifle lolAwesome shooting! That's really nice. Any idea why did you missed that 9th shot?
Yeah, i'm going back to Mosin on the next one, shooting this Swede is cheating!I think I had the pointer a bit too far to the left and got on the trigger a little too quick unfortunately. Obviously I can’t blame the rifle lol
Great job with that Swede! Awesome video
For sure man. This challenge is tons of fun! I just finished accurizing one of my PU snipers and finally got scope and mount in order. I will try to roll with it next!That looked way too easy, you sure that target wasn't at 100?? Lol
Seriously though great video, I hope we'll get to see something similar for the Mosin attempts
Shooting balloons at extended ranges is tons of fun. I agree, it is much harder than it looks.
This is awesome post - thank you very much for posting these pictures! Wow!
Richard, i figured black and white pictures were from "old days". I was just asking about "color picture" shooting. Ha!Rob,
None of these targets are mine!!
I Wish I could claim even the lowest score! LOL!!
No, some were shot on Antti's new range and the rest were shot by Civil Guard members between the wars.
But! I Am itching to try out a Tikka 1942, plus my old faithful Lotta M 24 at this range.
You will note that there are 30 shots on some targets, and apparently 50 rounds on some.
We Do hold a version of the Simo Hayha sniper course each January, where our shots are between 175 m and 500 metres, (open sights) but would Love to do more at 300 metres! (330 yds approx)
Seems I come alive when it comes to shooting period targets and using the period rifles. LOL!
Please forgive if I mislead in any way.
Outstanding! Thank you for digging this out!Rob,
I think the new photos were from CH's (Antti's ) thread on the range they built a year or so ago. I'll see if I can find the thread for you.
I too Love this stuff!!!
Here is a link to a related thread, wherein Antti explains the Civil Guard targets etc;
Morning Gents, Can anyone fill me in on the target sizes for all ranges of the Simo Hayha Sniper course? I gather first stage is 20 cm at 175 M. The other target dimesions I do not know. Thanks in advance for any information, Richard.www.gunboards.com
I'll look for the other one about building the range.
Edited to add the thread about the new range built by Antti and associates;
Very interesting targets, well explained!! Good stuff to read when you can't be shooting, Rob and all!
For years it seemed that this day would never arise. But so it happened, after 5212 voluntary man hours, 1927 voluntary machine hours, about 2000 cubic meters of blasted rock and tons of bureaucracy. The ability to shoot 300 metre rifle at local range! The actual opening day will have to wait...www.gunboards.com
I could read this every week and not get tired of it!
Again edited to add a link to our last winter War shoot. More target info in there from Antti, and lots of photos, for when you can't be shooting!
Gents, We held our second "Winter War" shoot last Friday. We only had five shooters, as some could not make it, so we Will be shooting again very shortly to try and accommodate those not present, (And those who Were present if they wish!) This thread will have a good few photos, as the...www.gunboards.com
