I have one in .270 and I love it. It shoots about 1.5" groups at 100 yards, with a good rest and better shooter that could probably be brought down. It's not the best looking rifle in camp, but it's the least expensive. I redid the stock, sanded and filed all the mould marks and painted it green texture over kaki. The only issue I had was the bolt handle had been bumped up a bit and I took a shot at a deer and it only clicked, I re-cocked the fireing pin and still shot the deer, but instead it was running. I think it's the best value in a rifle out there, and you don't mind taking it out in weather. I was looking at replacement triggers and for $100 I could get one, I'm just deciding if it's worth it.
the stevens 200 is also in the same price range as the moss 100 and it too is a finely accurate low end rifle!! have one in 22-250 and cannot believe how accurate the little sucker is....for winter coyote hunting its all i wanted!!!!!!!!!!
What does "gauge" mean anyway? As used here gauge means the number of round lead balls the same diameter as the inside of the barrel (aka the bore) that it would take to weigh one pound. It takes 12 lead balls the same diameter as a 12 gauge barrel to weigh a pound. The smaller 20 gauge would require 20 balls of that barrel diameter. The larger bore 12 gauge would require 12 lead balls of the bore diameter to weigh one pound.
In general the number of pellets in a shotgun shell...
