where's everyone?

What has happened here lately, seems no one is reporting information about their mosins anymore? Or anything else for that matter. This is one of the best sights and traffic has slooooowed.

I'm right there with you. I can't figure out what happened. I miss the chatter here. I don't have a build right now so I've been posting on some bullets I've been trying but I've been getting near no responses to those threads

Yeah. At first I thought it was the holidays, but it seems the traffic hasn't picked back up any. I bet the price jump in Mosins has something to do with it. Price has over doubled on them here. I can't afford to buy hem to chop up at the prices they are now. I'm just hoping they come down again after they start getting stuck with piles of them at these high prices.

I think all sites go thru dead periods , for whatever reasons , but I can't really give a good answer for it here . Like Jared ; I was posting topics , and responding to almost anything posted , and it seemed like I was seeing my "handle" on the column to many times , so I kind-of backed off on posting a little . Didn't want to hog the board .
I've gotten more involved with the "F"class shooters here , to gain access to the 1,000 yard range , and I'm still collecting parts and pieces for a "F" build .
You guys are a wealth of information on the M-N , Loading , Ballistics , building , and I'll keep posting , and asking questions till somebody says "shut up" . :lol:
So much to learn , so little time .
If not me.....Who ?
If not now ....When ?

I still check in almost every day. it has been slow around here. I actually went shooting this last weekend to work up some 7mm-08 loads for a non mosin build ive been working on and brought the mosin with me. I actually experienced a case head separation while shooting steel at 400 yards. winchester brass. It was fun to get some shooting in though.

No one is really modding anymore because Mosin prices are in the 215$+ range now. The war in Syria is where they are all being shipped to.

I have some Smyert M3.5 stuff ill be posting soon and some loads i am working on with my PE sniper.

I'm still here. Can't go very far anymore. Still loading and shooting when the weather permit. I'll post some pictures of my latest project as soon as it has the sheet metal work finished. Running a 1000yd range over rough terrain is getting old for the people who help me. It's UTV time.

Good to see some chatter and some updates from everyone. I'd love to do another build. I'm looking for a cheap mosin around here. No cheap ones to be found right now. Been keeping an eye open at pawn shops.

I have been working with a 7-08 and some new bullets for my mosin.

A bunch of 150gr Sierra SPs. These are quite hot. Ranging from 54gr to 56.2! So don't copy this load without starting at least 10% lower.
