    Well done. Talk about a capable but forgotten caliber. A friend has a lovely little falling block stalking rifle in 7.5x55 which was built between the wars. It has claw mounts and he added a modern Zeiss. It has accounted for a lot of Virginia whitetail deer.

    Congrats, this rifle/ammo combo is amazingly accurate for a military rifle.

    Congrats Reiver25 for a nice trophy still in velvet. I really like the K-31 which has an amazing trigger for a military rifle. I have actually shot a few MOA groups with cast bullets out of mine. I used to shoot it in military matches.
