    Cruising around for online ammo deals i found a dealer selling "Original Russian Military" 7.62x54r for about $25 for 100 rds and says it was made in 77', does this sound legit? im not sure on the rules of mentioning websites and linking so PM me if you would like to know the website.. if its legit i will be ordering a few hundred for my nagants :p

    25 cents a shot for russian surplus is a rip off. You can find better deals elsewhere. Wideners, Aimsurplus, etc.

    I think this is the same thing as the Russian "SNIPER" ammo that came in awhile ago?

    "sniper" ammo is 7n1. both the 20 round bundels and the tins would be marked ( as close as i can approximate in Latin characters)


    with the italic red N's being backwards

    off the top of my head, that looks to be it!

    i dont have any, nor do i speak/know Russian but i think thats it.

    the ammo was standard looking ammo, but iirc it wasn't light ball (147,148 gr), and it wasn't heavy ball(182gr ). it was like, 152 gr

    il try to find more on it

    hmm i have conflicting reports on weight.

    Mosinnagant.net says its 147 steel core light ball
    7.62X54r.net says it was 152 gr steel core
