My buddy tied up some balloons at 200 yards. Took out my trusty 91/30 Tula hex, and popped one first try. Said can I quit now? Har har, couldn't even see the balloon using the iron sights. Just aimed it where I remembered it was when I was checking it out with my spotting scope. Needless to say, never hit another one all day, at least with the Mosin. Popped quite a few with my scoped Saiga .223 because I could see them at 12 power. No one else hit one using the iron sights all day. I was the only one. I pwned them!
