    I've actually spoken with the guy a couple times and it's legit. I, personally, have made a 480yd shot with my 91/30, iron sights.

    I think the key here is that it's a sniper rifle. He's literally shooting the best-of-the-best Mosin-Nagants.

    I have a 91\30 and a M44 but only shoot cheap corrosive ammo. We had a trash compactor set out at approx 1000yds measured off. I shot 20 rounds with the open sights set at 1000 meters which was about right and I hit the target which was approx 30in by 18in twice and the rest were all within 15 feet of the target on all four sides. Just using open iron sights I thought that was pretty impressive for a M-N using old military ammo. I didn't do near as well with the M44 so I quit after five rounds.
