The problem with the Swedes is that they are all used and in various bore conditions. If you happen to get one with a bad or worn bore it may not shoot at all. But a good Swede should shoot about 1-1.5 inches at 100 with its open sights. If your rifle is all original, it should have a brass disk on the right side of the butt stock that shows the bore dimensions. If you go to the Swedish Mauser page at Chuckhawks.com m-96, it describes how to read the disk.

If you want to sell that worn out old Swede, let me know about price.
