What ammo are you shooting and are you going open sites or scoped?

Thanks

Used my M38

Went out Thursday and shot a doe at about 125 paces using my M38 with 150gr PRVI handloads and open sights. She went about 30 yards and piled up. The off side shoulder was all bloodshot and couldn't be used and the exit wound was about he size of a quarter. She dressed out at about 110 pounds.

Hi,

I'm new to this board, but I've been collecting mosins for several years, My first MN was given to me as a gift from my parents for Xmas in 2000 I had been looking for a FINN rifle it didn't mater which model; however my dad looked up and down and couldn't find one, so he purchased a M91-59. It is beautiful it looks like it came out of the factory new. later he told me it only cost him $85.00, he got a steal. Long story short I shot my first Whitetail Buck with this rifle last november, he was a 5pt and was aged at two years old. I shot him open sights at 105 yards @ 12:00 in the afternoon from a kneeling position. I just happened to walk in on him tearing up the ground with his antlers, he looked up and I confirmed a decent rack; he dropped his head. I dropped to a knee, he lifted his head looked right at me and I put a 180gr winchester white box through the white spot at the base of his neck....he never took a step. I would do it again in a heart beat with that rifle, I sold my remingtons and bought 2 new MN's since then. total I'm at 4. Great hunting cartridge, let the nay sayers talk.. more MN's for me. OH if you were wondering I'm from Michigans Upper Peninsula. Happy hunting...

Our first yooper! I am actually from Michigan in the Grand Rapids area (Lower penn.) and i know the deer hunting in Mich is pretty darn good. I cant deer hunt with my Mosin in Iowa because its too darn flat. I miss Michigan.

Love it up here, I've lived here my whole life. Yes, I'm yooper born and bred..its a good thing. I'm also Finn so that makes an MN all the sweeter. I'm still looking for a finn mosin though..

I got mine specifically to hunt with. No luck as of yet but I love carrying my 91/30!
