The 7.62x54r was originally created to fit Mosin-Nagants, which were first made by the Imperial Russian Army, although they’ve certainly grown far beyond Russia’s borders. It’s a rimmed rifle cartridge and has seen extensive use, with its roots starting in the Tsarist era and extending to current day. In fact, the 7.62x54r is unique because it’s one of the rare standard-issue rimmed rounds still being used by militaries around the world; it’s had – and continues to have – the longest service life of any cartridges that were designed for military use.
These 7.62x54r rounds are a lightweight 147 grain, and that means they’re going to go flying from the barrel of your rifle at fantastic speeds. It also means your felt recoil should be less than it would be with a heavier grain, and that means more range time since your shoulder won’t get such a workout. This is Full Metal Jacket ammunition, meaning it does not expand on impact. As with any range time, you need to be well aware of what lies beyond your target, because FMJ rifle rounds can travel long distances; have a good backstop. This ammunition is great for target practice, tactical training, and plinking.
As with any 7.62x54r you can be confident these rounds will move down-range like lightning and strike your stationary target with the force of a raging bull. There are 880 target rounds in sealed cans here, so be ready to dedicate some time to your rifle. It’s being sold by Bulgarian Surplus and was mostly made in the 1970’s, but the storage method with the sealed cans has helped this ammunition withstand moisture and natural deterioration. In addition the rounds have been sealed at the case mouth and primer pocket, making them even more moisture resistant. Get your 880-round order today and hit the range with your Mosin-Nagant.
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.
