One of my Neighbors used a Mosin-Nagant M-44 Carbine to take a Deer this past season.This short carbine has the accuracy and power to get the job done. In 2009, it's actually less expensive to pay a local smith to cut down a full length rifle than to buy a factory carbine. Go figure.
Commie 7.62 X 54R ammo is just fine. I wonder why Remington, Winchester, FEDERAL, and Hornady have ignored this cartridge?
This photo was sent to me by a friend in western Nebraska. Truthfully, I've never met this happy hunter.
