Availability: Out of stock

The 7.62x54r was designed in 1891 in what was then the Russian Empire for use as a service cartridge in the bolt-action Mosin Nagant. The Winchester 1895 was also chambered in this cartridge as a result of a contract with the Russian government and today the cartridge is still being used in a variety of rifles including the Dragunov, PKM, and a variety of sniper rifles. In fact, not only has the 7.62x54r remained popular and continued to see Russian military use but it’s become the military-issued cartridge with the longest service life in the entire world. If you have a Mosin Nagant or some other rifle chambered in this rimmed rifle cartridge, this ammunition is just what you need.

At 180 grain this is considered fairly heavy for the cartridge and is capable of delivering some serious knockdown power. These are FMJ rounds, so they don’t expand on impact, and they’re best used for target practice, shooting drills, and plinking. Each round has the following velocity and energy:

  • Muzzle velocity: 2579 feet per second
  • 100-yard velocity: 2407 feet per second
  • 200-yard velocity: 2242 feet per second
  • 300-yard velocity: 2084 feet per second
  • Muzzle energy: 2659 foot-pounds
  • 100-yard energy: 2317 foot-pounds
  • 200-yard energy: 2010 foot-pounds
  • 300-yard energy: 1736 foot-pounds

There are 20 target rounds in this box of ammunition from Sellier and Bellot.
