Losing a bet on shooting to your brother in law is as bad as it gets.
My brother in law has a $89 russian mosin WWII rifle and he shoots surplus ammo and at almost
100 yards he busted a can of beans,,Open sights with a good rest. Damn I hate to lose to him.
He gets his deer every year with this rifle usually a head shot. I should have known better than
to bet with a hillbilly *******. -Darn,,, I wish I could do that.

I think from what I've read you can expect almost 2 MOA with the Mosin, supposedly the most accurate rifle of it's time which compared to modern day rifles isn't saying much.

I don't care much for 100 year old rifles, I'm sorry they do well at point blank range but I like the option of reaching out and touching someone. If you aren't ready to take a shot at 400 yards it isn't a real sniper rifle.
And 400 yds is just the starting point any more.. I would start practicing if I were you.. Perfect practice makes perfect!!
Haha from a person living in the flatlands!

My maximum shot from my OP is 311 yards because of trees, nap of the earth, etc.

When you live in the prairie you can expect 400+ shots but they are tricky and over 500 is just for experts.

But if you can hit a pie plate at 600 yards, anything below that is gravy.
Flatlands I am not.. We have a mixture here in the breaks.. Sky Cloud Plant Natural landscape Mountain

Here are a few pics of different views from our place.. The distances range from around 100yds in certain areas to upwards of 1500yds or more in other directions.. I saw about a hundred elk this morning between 4-700yds and a few deer (whitetail and a few mulies)as close as 200. I saw a bighorn the other evening at 600..
