When it comes to unique and fascinating cartridges, the 7.62 Russian Nagant is definitely one. Its full name is the 7.62x38mmR, and it was designed in 1895 by Emile and Leon Nagant for the Russian Nagant M1895, which was a revolver. Although there were a few submachine guns created chambered in this cartridge, the Soviet military did not want them, and as a result it was the revolver alone that was issued to Russian soldiers. In this round the bullet itself is seated beneath the cartridge’s mouth, which is crimped right above the bullet. The idea behind this is that the crimp will expand when fired from an M1895, which completes the gas seal and should increase the velocity somewhat. 7.62x38mmR is an interesting cartridge, and if you’re fortunate enough to own a gun chambered in this round, you’re probably pleased to have found these target rounds.
These particular 7.62 Russian Nagant (7.62x38mmR) rounds are manufactured by Prvi Partizan, a company that was originally founded in 1928. Each round weighs in at 98 grain, making them rather lightweight overall but within the expected, standard weight range for the cartridge size. Being lightweight means they can zip down-range at higher speeds and helps keep felt recoil and muzzle rise down. These are Full Metal Jacket, FMJ, rounds and so do not expand on impact. FMJ rounds tend to over-penetrate targets and can travel great distances before coming to a stop on their own, so make sure you have a reliable backstop in place. This ammunition is great for target practice and plinking.
When you order this box of ammunition from Prvi Partizan you get 10 boxes containing 50 rounds each for a total of 500 target rounds. With 500 rounds you can get some serious trigger time in with your favorite gun, whether you want to specifically work on accuracy and placement or simply want to blow away some empty soda cans and water jugs. These rounds have a muzzle velocity of 738 feet per second and muzzle energy of 118 foot-pounds. Prvi Partizan manufactures ammunition at their longtime factory in Uzice, Serbia, according to SAAMI and CIP specifications.
