Here’s what ya need for introducing Mosins to people (like me!) who don’t care for heavy recoil. czech practice ammo. good stuff. I use it in the carbines. Shoot all day. And these guys have the fastest shipping ever.
“42x12 round boxes of 7.62x54R Czech Surplus Hollow Core Short Range ammo packed in a .50 cal ammo can. This ammo has very low recoil in the Mosin Nagant, it feels like shooing a 22 Mag. Ideal for youth shooting, or training where reduced recoil is desired, very accurate to about 200 yards. Everyone who loves shooting Mosins needs a case of this ammo in their stock. “

Seriously, it might be worth a try, to sight it in, at least. I won't care about recoil if a gaggle of savages starts running wild in my neighborhood. (And we have one that is so brain-fried, he'd be the one to do it.) I want to instill the fear of God in the rest when the first one gets bisected at the end of a belching tunnel of flame. Besides, I've got so many little creaks and pops in my carcass anymore, I'd probably not even notice it the next day if I had to snap off that many rounds. I have to down a couple of Advil before I even leave the house most mornings.

Ak’s or SKS rifles have fairly light recoil and you can add butt pads to absorb more. Plentiful ammo. But nobody should be without a good shotgun. Get a mossberg maverick 88. As good as their 500/590s but a couple hundred less.
