and virtually none of it was with the Mosin, and RUSSIAN ammo, that's certain. That gun and load wasn't capable of staying on a man beyond 1/4 mile. :) If the man was sideways, 300m would be pushing it. If the guy was walking, sideways to the sniper, 200m would be pushing it. :)

Don't know much about long range shooting, eh?

Funny hoe Russian snipers have kills running in the HUNDREDS, per person. Pretty amazing for sniping that wasn't done with Mosins or Russian ammo.

The M91/30 PU sniper rifles hold 1 1/2-2 MOA. . .that's now 60 years after they were produced, and used.

For somebody who thinks that 100yds is a long shot gunkid would naturally discount the WW2 sniper's accomplishments because gk can't possibly duplicate them.
