I was just thinking. Ammo is hard to find and expensive. 7.62x54r is quite available at least in my area. I don't know much about ballistics but I'd assume the 54r and the .308 have similar characteristics. If the 54r would be just as adequate at hitting targets at ranges that the .308 is why haven't more people been making new rifles chambered in 54r? It could be a cheaper alternative to .308 with give or take similar performance. Obviously there's a ton of modern sporting rifles and AR's chambered in .308 but not in 54r. Is there a reason for any of this. I think it would be pretty cool to have a remington 700 in 54r. I know the head spacing and rimmed cartridge would be an issue but that's never stopped anyone from doing something out of the ordinary.
