Bojan Milankovic: Wonderful video, thank you! I've been shooting for years now but I just got
my first Mosin (M38), 880 round surplus crate and some chargers and I was
beyond lost. I got it now thanks to you.
sjag8989: Cool vid thanks man
ghosthooker3000: cool video, thanks for making it, I just got my first stripper clips in the
mandela451: excellent video, very informative
JACKSONLEWISOFCANADA: now i know what was going on with my clips to loading!!!! thank you!
TheMojo1963: WRONG! Do some research on the interrupter/ejector. Do you really think
the Russian troops in the heat of battle paid attention to the orientation
of their cartridges before loading? Get your Mosin running correctly and
YOU WON'T HAVE RIMLOCK!
tigernclaw: Great video. Thanks for sharing this info. I had no idea rounds can lock in
a clip. I have 2 Mosins that I'm cleaning (e.g., removing cosmoline) so I
can take to the range. Two questions for you:
1. Do you recommend very lightly oiling the stripper clips before loading
rounds? I've read conflicting recommendations on this issue.
2. What 7.62x54r manufacturer(s) do you recommend for use? At the range I
go to, no bi-metal or steel casings are allowed. Also, the 'corrosive'
factor also will determine which ammo I ultimately purchase.
Once again, thanks for sharing your expertise.
theroofsedge: So you are saying if one removes the rifle from the stock the interrupter
should work and the stock needs to be ground to permit clearance?
Matt Patt: There is a trick to this if you load them with the top rounds rim behind
the lower round than it will jam But if you load it with the to round
infront of the lower round itll work right
Brandon Rivers: Thanks for showing how to load the clips and explaining how to properly
stack the rims so the rounds to not get locked; I was starting to think my
MN was defective but it turned out to be an "operator malfunction."
BCrod&gun: So these stripper clips are modern aftermarket ones that are apparently
based on an older design. The ones the Russians used for the 91/30, M38,
M44 are different dimensionally and are easy to load and unload in the
21taters: quite simply it wont load if the middle is the highest because itll rimlock
with the fourth round what you have shown in the video is the proper
BCrod&gun: @Wabatuckian I'm not really sure by loading it as a pyramid with the middle
as the highest will make it load easier, I'll have to try that. But the
method I describe is what is most accepted at least from what I've watched
and read. You don't have to lift the top round to push the rest down, but I
do because it works better in these aftermarket clips. I do agree with what
you have to say about the interrupter however.
bigdogbuc: Thanks dude. I was getting my ass kicked by these things. Figured out the
loading of the stripper clip, but grabbing the top round really made my
life way easier! ( =
BCrod&gun: No problem. You shouldn't get rimlock on your gun if the interrupter in
your magazine is working properly regardless of how you set your stripper
clips up. But certain ways of setting up stripper clips allow them to get
pushed in easier.
superpoop899: Sounds like a CRT monitor.
Kyle Casey: dose anyone else hear a highpitch squeal DX
Vlad Xavier: THis works quite well, but on my M44, all I do it use my thumb and
pressdown on the rear end of the cartridges and they slide right in, it
also depends on the stripper clip itself, some are tight, others loose.
TruthSeeker1015: I will try this, thanks.
Smith Sights: Hello, I'm sorry but this is not correct. The usual way of loading a
stripper clip is to load the middle the highest. This forms a pyramid and
allows even pressure so that you don't have to manipulate the rounds in any
certain way in the midst of battle. The interrupter prevents rimlock no
matter how the cartridges were inserted. If it's not, then the wood has
squashed or just dried too much between the mag and receiver, and the
tolerances are too tight. Regards, Josh at Smith-Sights
Ken Henderson: I c now how to use the ammo clips u show on your video. The ones I just
bought ( gun show) r aluminum and r thin & cutting self is a likely
turnout. Can u lead to a site where I can get ones like u show in video?!
Do u know where I can get large opener so I don't have to use hammer and
screwdriver? Do you know where I can get ammo pouches to hold rounds. Last
but not least, I'm 63 yrs old and this is first mosin. Without you video I
would not even know how to load it. Seriously! THANK YOU!!!!
21taters: thats just a matter of preference whether you like inserting the stripper
clip and pushing the rounds down vs. using the loaded top round in the clip
to push them all into the magazine
theroofsedge: I have the same inexpensive stripper clips and I dont have to hold my top
shell up; just insert and push. Is this unusual?
AvocadoAtrocity: I have no idea, but it's hurting my ears.
theroofsedge: I tried experimenting and even though my interrupter functions I will get
rim lock if not as described in this video. Theoretically, it shouldn't
matter with the interrupter. One thing I did notice is it appears the width
of the magazine causes the shells to float around. The upper part of the
mag well has a special curve that should prevent rim lock, but then again-
its a rushky.
Alex Sherrard: I shot my Mosin for the first time today but had to ditch my plans of using
my stripper clips because I tried unsuccessfully to load it and thought
there was something defective on my MN or the stripper clips I bought. This
video really cleared up my concerns and showed me that it was just new user
error. Thank you very much!!!
