Shooting a Mosin Nagant with Iron Sights at 944 yards

The Mosin–Nagant is a bolt action rifle developed in the 1880s by the Imperial Russian Army and was the primary firearm used by Russian Soldiers during World War II. This firearm holds quite the place in military history and is still in military service by some nations. About 37,000,000 Mosin Nagants were manufactured and can be easily obtained for around $200 even today. Mosin Nagants fire the capable 7.62c54R cartridge and are known for their durability.

While the Mosin Nagant is a quality rifle, it is by no means a precision rifle. 944 yards (863 meters) is an impressive shot with iron sights with any rifle, especially this rifle.
