" Finnish M-28 Mosin Nagant rifle. 203 grain silver bear ammo."
Here is a pic of me with my first boar and a Finnish M39 that was made on a Tula receiver from 1895. Cartridges were mil-surp light ball that I pulled the FMJ pill and replaced with a 150gr JSP. Boar was smallish, but tasty!
Here's a Romanian SKS ... once again, mil-surp ammo with the projectiles swapped for same weight JSP's. Not sure how the bayonet is so clean in this pic ... it definitely got used at the base of the skull to verify cooperativeness. Not quite the same property as the last one, but same county.

1938 M38 Mosin 203 grain brown bear
Deer was broadside to me about 75-100 yards
Since I don't like the safety on the Mosin i Carry it with the bolt open while around others and in the woods.
Saw the deer step out from behind a tree and I pulled up and closed the bolt. Got on the sights and pulled the tigger in about 2 seconds.
Blew out the heart and one lung
Deer sprayed blood about 6 feet up the tree for about a 30 yard run.
Then it expired and slid down a hill another 4 yards
While I was up to my arms trying to dress it a 7 point ran past about 7 yards away.
Btw this is a little button buck
Eight points, taken on November 10th, 2012 in Louisiana. The rifle was a Chinese Type 53 Carbine (M44 clone) and the ammo was Prvi Partizan 150 grain.
The deer was taken last year on public land. Load was a 203 grain Silver Bear SP, distance was under 20 yards.

The fox was shot with Soviet Mil Surp ammo."
(Josh's note: The exit wound is very graphic and some may find it in poor taste. I've therefore uploaded it to a hidden page. Contact me through the email address above if you wish to see what a Soviet ball 7.62x54R exit wound looks like.)
Here is one from a couple years ago. 203gr Brown Bear. Darrel's scout mount.
