The reason I posted it here is there is a little section on Ballistics, bullet and caliber selection. It's about halfway down the page. Clearly a translation of a Russian site, so there's quite a few errors in it.

I typed out the relevant section below. I assume the caliber is 7.62x54R.
Anyone know anything about the bullets they are referring to?

I think it would be interesting to do some comparison testing from then to now, assuming the components referenced are truly WWII era, and if some could be found.

I've shot my share of WWII surplus, some bad, some of it surprisingly good. Although, looking back, might have been better to preserve most of it.
Ballistics

As it was indicated earlier, there is an extensive information about the possibilities of cartridge 308 caliber. The basic recommended type of bullet is the bullet with the opening in the head part, shell with the conical tail section, a weight 168 - 175 boundaries (10,7 - 11,2 grams). Also a good selection are 7mm of magnum, 300 winchester of magnum and 50-1 calibr. to talk about the ballistics - nevertheless, which to argue about the religion, especially because there is an enormous quantity of excellent books and tables, which in detail describe this object....

It sounds like "Spitzer Boat Tail HP".

I would have a look at the following sites, but I think it is not such a vintage design:
