Went to the range today,and was surprised that my rifle shoots to just above point of aim,using prvi 139 grain. It was shooting to the left an inch and a half. I found the front site to be loose. Moving it to the left and securing it should take care of the windage and I'm happy with the elevation. I may invest in a Mojo to improve the sight picture, which will help the groups. A good day.

Welcome to the forum. Congrats on the M96. I love shooting mine. That long barrel (longer site radius) really help burn up that powder. The 6.5x55mm round is enjoyable and accurate to shoot!

Marc

+1, I have RCBS dies for mine and enough brass to keep me busy a while!

You're going to love that rifle. Was the shooting at 100 yds? That's only about 0.006" of movement on the front sight to move the group 1".

Mojo sights are very nice. You can also mold a rear aperture sight out of JB Weld. I'd use a spare rear sight if the rifle is all matching. Works for me.

It is pleasant to shoot,and it does seem like it will be highly accurate. I really shoot better with peep sights.dmg4, I read your article on your modified sight and like it,but I'll need to pick up a replacement sight first. I do reload,but not for the Swede,and I havn't done any in quite a while. My gun hobby has been dormant for quite a while, I'm getting back into it now and I'm having fun. I was shooting at 100 yrds. I did post a pic on another post but they are too big, I have to crop them to get them to load. I'll keep working on that. Thanks for the encouragment and advice, Tom.
