I have an accurate (for hunting) Type 53 Mosin.
I would like to make this a 100 yard gun for my 12 year old next year. Anybody make the 7.62x54 into a low recoil load? I have everything I need except for the recipe.
P.S. for all the mosin haters... I don't want to hear the "buy a mauser" or any other negative comments. To each his own, so leave me alone. I enjoy hunting with my 91/30 and I love the cartridge. I would just like to make my boys gun a little more managable. The 53 packs a whallop with a full load!
