    The ammunition used in the Swedish M96 Mauser in use by the Finnish Army at the time was calibrated to strike the bulls eye at 300 meters. At less distance, for example 100 meters, the bullet would strike a foot higher than the point of aim, and that is the reason for Finnish Soldiers saying “aim at their balls” causing the bullet to strike in the torso of the enemy.
