    Hey everyone thanks for checkin in, for the last few days I have been researching my 1896 M91 Mosin Nagant that I acquired about a year an a half ago. From what I can tell the bolt, receiver and Barrel are matching from the Tula armory. However the stock is from a later configuration. I have...

    I recent decided I should get into some 5.45x39 and 7.62x54r rifles. One of each to be specific. I'm just wondering what some people around here recommend. Thanks in advance.

    Of all the different cartridges used in military service rifles these two perform as close to one another as to have no ballistic advantage over one another. The cartridge dimensions are different but the same bullets and powder loadings can be used in both with nearly identical performance to a...

    I recently bought a M1891/30 and I have some questions. 1. I went target shooting with it once. The bolt was quite hard to move, so I pretty much had to slam my hand on it. Is there any way to make it easier? Is every bolt-action rifle like this? 2. When I bought it, I was shown how to clean...

    How good is the 7.62X54 round? I can pick up a rifle for around 100 dollars I just don't know if it worth it and would like to know more about the accuracy and the range before I add one (possibly two if the wife likes it) to my collection.

    Some mainly because of the wide variety of mil-surp ammo and the varing loadings of such probable have not experienced the versitility and accuracy this cartridge is capable of. I have been reloading this cartridge for a couple of decades and have found it one of the most versitile and effective...

    Norma and Hornady as well as a couple of speciality ammo makers make hunting rounds for the 7.62x54R. There is even some imported from Russia pulled military reseated with a 200 gr soft point out there. Generally speaking for most of the sources and my own practical experience reloading is the...

    Most of our defensive longguns are in the 30 cal class so over the years I stocked up on 150 to 146 gr Full metal jacketed pulled bullets mostly boattails. Most were old 3006 I think but many may have been 308. This is a very versital bullet in that I can do reloading in 7.62x39, 7.62x54R and...

    Anyone here have any experience with the Mosin-Nagant rifle? A buddy of mine had one several years ago. We fired off a few rounds one day. The rifle seemed like it was well built. For the price, seems like it would be a good buy. And what about the 7.62x54R cartridge. From what I have seen...
