    most of you are too young to remember but the russians ruled the world of long range shootin in the 60's with the mosin nagant, that is the 1000 yd international military matches.

    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.
