    M44 fireball

    Not only is the fireball a most satifying event but if you happen to be at the range with new shooters the sound, the fireball, the extended bayonet and a strange look in your eye will get you alot of attention. Pulling the new guys chain is good sport.

    .75 MOA for under $400?

    Hey project90,
    What was that .223 you were talking about? I think I'll just go for the mosin right now, but I might look into it later. I was thinking it would be nice to be able to hunt with this rifle if I wanted to, so a .223 would be slightly on the small side. But, I'm still very interested in maybe getting into some competition shooting later on. I know, .75moa is a little on the large side for serious competition, but it's way better than I can shoot right now. Plus, it would be nice to have a super accurate rifle without much recoil. That way, I couldn't blame the wondering shots on the gun or the recoil. Did the gun break open in the middle or was it a single shot bolt action?

    Thanks.
