I'd like to put forth a counter thread to the Mosin-Nagant enthusiasm running rampant here. Are there any Garand shooters around here? I've had mine for quite some time and enjoy shooting it very much. Chambered for .30-06, it will work with any bullet weight you can stuff into it. It really seems to like the 140gr to 180gr stuff the best. I'm probably just as enthusiastic about the "greatest battle implement ever devised by man" as most Mosin owners are about their rifles. So, let's hear from the M1 shooters around here.
