    I think high Mosin Score might have been 250’s or 260’s. Franco surprised no duds from ammo made ~1944.

    LOL I already determined a double on your M1 target. You had your chance to prove the MM score. See if I ever give you a 'Franco 10' again. [devil]

    Penciled in this match, I also was going to use K98 in Vintage. Need to come up with a load for the 200gr Noslers though.
    Friend on the fence about coming. He might run the Lee-Enfield if he comes.

    I will be running a few test loads. I may have to shoot the enfield. The notch rear sights are getting very hard to see clearly.
    I might try the arisaka again too?

    Managed to catch some fresh .30-06 brass on the only bit of exposed skin during the rapids. Nice 1 inch burn on my neck under my left ear, feeling pretty ripe today. Maybe I'll shoot the next match in a turtleneck.

    I had pretty good luck with AA2495 and 150gr Hornadys. Obviously a 50gr jump in projectile weight changes things.
    Did you come up with a solution for sling use with the K98?

    Ouch! No hoodie at least flopped over your neck?

    Probably will shoot K31 next match. Maybe the M39 but I have a rear peep conversion and would need to replace it with the stock blade. Besides, if the bolt gives me any trouble I don’t want to be accused of Mosin abuse like we had yesterday.

    I did have trouble with the M1 reload and literally had to punch in the 8 round enbloc.

    I am a lefty so I just make a US GI web sling work......
    Seriously though I found a lower band with the sling loop at the 6 oclock and I cant even remember if a put it on or not?
    I also dont recall what lower band I ordered?
    G98 transitional model? Yugo? i know I snagged a few varriants along with a band with both 6 and 9 OC position?
    i also picked up one for the K31

    My band is at 9 o'clock so I was trying to think of a good solution. I haven't shot it prone yet, should probably try.

    I'm only 5'8''.
    The Lee-Enfield has a traditional 6 o'clock sling loop, might be better. However, I still haven't tuned the magazine so would be slow loading. This might be good motivation to do that though. Friend will be in Canada the weekend of that match as it turns out, so if I go, it'll be alone.

    Feed issues, the last round in the magazine (i.e., if you load and fire all the other rounds) goes askew when the bolt starts pushing it forward. It points high and left. It gets out of line with the chamber and will not go in to the chamber without giving it a little push downwards manually. It's not a huge issue but it's kind of annoying. I think I just need to bend a feedlip a little, but I haven't done it yet/before.

    I have the K11 sling loop mounted on the K31, and it’s at 6:00. Works great.

    Need to check my GP11 stock. If adequate, I’ll shoot that. Probably just random luck, but at Vermont I out-scored a guy who won Perry Vintage with that GP11.

    Get a pair of those smooth round nose pliers and give it a tweek. I think I posted some links to how to do it somewhere?

    Same here, i dont know if I will see the rear sight well enough to keep shooting the K31. It will get a scope or pony up for the diopter sight set while they are still available. ?
    Might just pack it in the back of the safe.
    Going to tey one of those eye pal things too

    Eye pal = piece of electrical tape with a small hole in it?

    Been there, i cant get a clean hole and its a pita to move around. I have to try something or rear notch sighted rifles will be benched for all but plinking.
    Sunday was a struggle vision wise. My stronger Rx is taking for ever to come in.

    For the record, I credit the paint job for the 287-6X score last match. I think I'll try the same approach on my M1 for the next match- gotta do better than 266.

    Well the k98 is most likely out. I cant see the rear notch.
    Will try the K31 this week if I cant see that Im going to order the match diopter sight set and shoot in the Unlimitted Vintage Match - yeah I might have made that up but really who cares.

    I figured out why I never put the 6 oclock band on my K98. The 2 bands I got dont fit.
