- Q & A
If you’re a long-distance shooter with a Mosin-Nagant or other 7.62x54R chambered rifle, you don’t want to use just any ammunition to make that important shot. These are SPBT rounds, so they’re ideal for finally mastering distance shots, especially when they’re over 500 yards. They have a soft point, meaning they’re lead expanding bullets that are open at the tip. Upon impact, they generate significant energy transfer and immediately begin to expand, but because they’re soft points, they don’t expand as fast as a hollow point. Instead, they mushroom as they penetrate, allowing for deeper penetration before they finish decelerating. Because of their capability for a larger wound track, they’re favored by many hunters.
7.62x54R rounds are sometimes confused with 7.62x39mm rounds, but there are significant differences. Also, the “R” does not stand for “Russian,” it stands for “rimmed.” However, it is true that the velocities and energies this round is capable of achieving are comparable with the .308 Winchester. And when it’s a hunting-capable round such as these SPBT rounds, the sheer power makes them able to take down medium and large game. These particular rounds are 180 grain, making them moderately heavy and capable of impressive stopping power.
There are 20 rounds in this box, so you can spend some time perfecting your distance shots or filling your deer tag. And thanks to their boat tails, they have increased cross-wind resistance and improved ballistic coefficency. They’re fast, too, with a muzzle velocity of 2,641 feet per second. And you get more bang for your buck, because they’re made with fresh brass, boxer-primed cases, so you can reload. Wolf manufactures all its ammunition to SAAMI specifications at the Tula plant in Tula, Russia. If you need to master your long-range shooting skills, whether for hunting or enjoyment, load your rifle with these rounds.
