    Yeah, I've started watching that one on Netflix. It's interesting that she seems to have started out using a scoped Mosin and gone back to iron sights in later episodes; maybe the scope doesn't work as well in the temperatures they get there.

    I've read that the safeties on Mosins aren't exactly the best suited for hunting use and that trigger usually weighs a ton. I'd sand down that sear; I got my mosin from about 11-12 lbs to a crisp 4.5-5lbs. That definitely helps with the accuracy.

    If you're confident with the rifle, it's definitely a capable caliber.

    The Mosin has possibly the worst safety ever. Since I'm not a Soviet soldier, I think I'd just carry it with the chamber empty instead.

    The Mosin is a rough rifle for rough troops. Primitive, reliable, powerful, accurate enough. Sometimes very accurate.
    It can be used by highly trained troops or poorly trained recruits
    i was asked by a friend “Do they kick”. I told him “yes, like a mule” . An old question in a generation that thinks 300 mag. Is the best thing since sliced bread.

    I never use the safety when up in the tree stand on my '43 Izy Mosin. Makes too much noise when switching it on/off--plus its very CLUNKY. The rifle is very accurate with my reloads.

    Paid a whopping $54 for my 1947 M44. Sold it for $250. Worth a lot more now. Had a Daryls scout mount site on it with a Burris 2x pistol scope. Very handy. Buddy of mine had a similar set up. He killed a 202 lb black bear with it from my treestand. He was a new hunter, it was the first thing he ever shot. I was in WV hunting deer and had to talk him through gutting it. The 7.62x54r will take anything in the US.

    FWIW, I couldn't have purchased a big bore bolt rifle like my .405 Grenadier Mosin Nagant for anything close to what it ended up costing me.
    As mentioned, my Mosin-Nagant based hunting rifle. I have not yet hunted with it. But I intend to give it a try this year.

    If everyone had left all the Springfields, Mausers, M1917s, P14s, SMLEs, and Mosin-Nagants as original then just think of all the wonderful hunting rifles that never would have been.
