    I bought my 1st Mosin in 1986 .... ammo was $ 22 a box, and NORMA was all you could find.

    on an E-3 Salary I got into reloading pretty fast.

    Have not had the best results with loading for rifle. I stuck to handgun cartridges.

    Oh, one exception would be 30:30. Did manage a good result with that one.

    I've been told for years to stay away from Mitchells Mausers.
    Mitchell's are what they are, lots of bamboozled customers over the decades for sure.
    I have a ex BIL that owns quite a few. He's a shooter not a collector.

    Are they worth the money as an ordinary shooter?

    Are you looking at the Serbian Model 48's ?
    If so for 350 bucks it's gonna be rough but should be fine for shooting.


    I just asked my son about what he paid for his last 98. It's a 1943 built by Sauer, it's in very good condition, he paid under 400 for it two years ago while at a Chantilly show.
    It is unpeened and was still packed in cosmoline.

    That's not that bad. I've seen the asking price higher for a turkish variant.

    I'll have the check the next couple VA shows.
