    It'll be high at 100.

    Kind of funny, how it all gets me laughing... This thread repeats almost weekly, with last week's answer being ballistic trajectory charts!

    I find that my 1891/30 Rifles shoot a foot high and to the Right, at 100 Meters...

    IMO, it'll be only slightly high.

    That's probably without the bayonet. Just drift the front sight and stick on a small tube of electrical shrink wrap to fix the POI.

    Yep, without the bayonet fixed on the muzzle they will do that.

    ive wondered if someone designed a muzzle brake to attach the same way the bayonet does but have the muzzle brake the same weight (12oz) as the bayonet if it will fix the high to the right issue without messing with sights, which i already did just need to test er out with the adjustments.

    The bayonet's mass is not as concentrated and uniformly distributed as such a device's would be so it would likely not be as simple as duplicating the weight exactly.

    I found that at 1000 yds there is a 26 ft drop using surplus light ball. I hit an old refrigerator at that distance with the bayonet attached.

    I was at a local dunhams and saw a stack of business cards with a muzzle break that goes on exactly like a bayonet.

    I have seen one on an auction site that looks like a muzzle break welded to a cutoff bayonet.

    Sounds like we a need a sticky with the ballistics information, since it's a question that comes up often.
