The Mosin-Nagant was originally designed for the Imperial Russian Army in 1891, but today it has a vast fan following here in the United States. Not only are they fun to shoot, they’re extremely affordable, making them a good option for gun enthusiasts who want a rifle but can’t afford the bells and whistles of many other mainstream models. The round they come chambered in is what makes them fun to shoot; the 7.62x54r flies fast and hits hard. These rounds put serious holes in your targets, and they tend to be as economically priced as the rifles they were originally made to fit.
These particular 7.62x54r rounds are made by Bulgarian Surplus and were mostly manufactured in the 1970’s. They ship in their original sealed cans which have helped them resist moisture and deterioration. In fact, Bulgarian Surplus made these rounds to resist moisture by applying sealant at the primer pocket and case mouth. This ammunition was manufactured with some steel, making it magnetic.
At 147 grain this is fairly lightweight ammunition for the cartridge size, and that means they’ll reach higher velocities and create a bit less felt recoil. They’re Full Metal Jacket, so they don’t expand on impact but simply make impact, penetrate, and keep on going – over-penetration is normal for target rounds. Keep in mind that rifle rounds can travel for miles before they’ll stop on their own, so you’d better have a reliable backstop. This ammunition is best for target practice, tactical training, and plinking. There are 440 rounds in sealed cans, so you’re going to have some great quality time with your Mosin-Nagant. Get your order in now and feed your rifle.
Although this ammunition is listed as brass-cased it is rated magnetic. Some ranges do not allow magnetic rounds; when in doubt, simply use a magnet to see if the round is attracted to it. It is also listed as corrosive.
