    The metal-clad wolf, Tula, LVE soft-point ammo has always worked well for me. It has always been so inexpensive that I spent time reloading other calibers. A lot of deer have rotated through my freezer b/c of Mosins!

    I can't get this thing to shoot with surplus stuff [I guess that's not the tula stuff]. I'm gonna try some USA made ammo and see what happens. Maybe have to slug the barrel to see if it is ok. I think my scope may be crap.
