Decided To Have An American Made 7.62X54R Shootoff

Postby gandog56 » Mon Sep 28, 2015 5:07 am

Took three rifles to the range. A Remington Mosin Nagant, a New England Westinghouse Mosin Nagant, and a Winchester 95 lever action factory chambered in 7.62X54R to see which was the most accurate. The Westinghouse just edged out the Remmy and Win, with the Remmy being slightly better than the Win. The Westinghouse was the only one that was counterbored. Which proves my point that I would rather have a good shooting counterbored rifle than one non counterbored that might be improved by having one.

But a good time was had by all.

I'd like to see some pics of that. It sounds like a fun day of shooting!

What rounds were you using? Different rifles will favor different rounds.

I would love to have any one of your rifles Gangdog! My family has always been Remington users, so one would fit into my modest collection very well, but any of the Americans are awesome! The build quality really seemed a shade better, just from my point of view.

The as usual round....my own reloads. I put a 15o grain FMJBT (Yeah there IS steel in them, but I wasn't shooting these in California) on top of 45 grains of Hodgdon H4895.
