Good looking rifles. Question, some years back I shot a friends Mosin sniper. With the scope mount as high as it is, I could not get a good check weld, had to hold my head up nearly off the comb of the stock. What are you doing to remedy this, or is it not an issue for others?

Nice '41 Progress. Are the letters CB on the vertical adjustment knob? Are there any other markings on the scope itself? A square with the letters P and M?

For mrrm - I have not had any issues with getting a good cheek weld with the PU mount configuration. Given that it was used by so many people of differing size in WWII I'm surprised you had an issue. Was your friend's Mosin a side-mount or top mount scope?

I didn't pull the scope off the mount. I had no idea there's that many markings! I'll look for those after work.

I have several of the PU's and can say they are tack drivers. Check out the Hornady .308 SST 150gr and some 4064. I made a batch of these just to see what they would do because they are .308. Well this has become my GOTO load and all of my Mosins love it.

Here is the target from the "discovery" day when I was load testing. I was checking for grouping not sighting in. This was 10 shots at 100, yup that's 10 shots.......

Great shooting usnmars. Isn't the bore like .311 on these? Is it typical to get good results with a 308 bullet?
