A quick go at zeroing

Chris picked up this nice M94 Swedish Mauser Cavalry Carbine this month. Nice looker but one or two things arent quite right. The front sling band is upside down (easy enough) and the bore is in dire need of some TLC.


The first shots at 50 yards wouldnt even show on an A4 sheet so we walked up really close. The first round seemed to tumble but then the other 4 rounds printed really nice and tight.

Chris couldnt see the front sight blade, it isnt easy even with my good eyesight but his shots at about 25 yards were rather ragged and loose. I'm not sure if he will be able to shoot this in competition. I'm not sure if the barrel and sights will be of use to this chap apart from with cast lead loads at 30 yards.

I would suggest that you slug the barrel it should be 264/265 if badly worn try Carcarno bullets at 268.

It seems its about to be rebarrelled, I hope that the dealer who sold it doesnt charge him for changing it!
