    Rode some MTB and shot some guns today; two of my favorite things. :rock:

    The guns were my trusty Ruger MkII and Yugo Tokarev (Zastava M57).

    [​IMG]

    Ammo was the stuff pictured, Mini Mags 40gr and the range was 25yrds, standing offhand.


    I shot 65rnds, group was a little right and about 5".

    No issues, this guns runs on pretty much everything. Accurate, too.




    Next, the Tokarev.

    The Yugo Tok seems an accurate gun, too, today it was fed 80's era Norinco (yellow box) 7.62x25 ball, steel cased.
    Chrono numbers put it at just under 1500fps, 86gr boolit.


    Didn't shoot so well for me today, could have been the stiffer trigger (esp compared to the Ruger) and 90 degree grip angle had me dipping shots, or the ammo was inconsistent...it didn't seem as consistent as the Win stuff I normally shoot, plus it's 30yrs old.

    Either way, lots of up and down, but still big trouble for anyone 25yrds away, even with a level II vest.:whistling:

    No issues here either, gun fed and ejected the Norinco ammo, it had a decent snap to it and pretty vigorous ejection...but I'll stick with the S&B/Win stuff from now on.

    The Tok has done better by far, it's only the second type of ammo I've run through it.
    The Ruger is always that good.:supergrin:

    Very nice with the Mark II. I have trouble with other guns after shooting mine, the odd grip angle, and I keep reaching for a heel release that isn't there.

    Wasn't the last group you posted from the Tok around 3"? (yes, I'm keeping score) Still respectable though.

    Cheers.

    Thanks.:wavey:

    Yeah, last time at 25yrds using Win 7.62x25 ammo.

    With the Norinco stuff, I figured it would be about the same elevation-wise, held 'sub six' o Clock on the bull and first shot was low in 3 ring. Adjusted up to right on bull, next round hit top of bull. Kept that hold, next round went waay over bull...and I knew either I was jerking my shots or ammo was weird.

    I'll hunt down more Winchester stuff or maybe Wolf Jhp's.
