This might be my last post for a long time so lets make it a good one. I want a rifle chambered in 7.62x54rmm and i dont really want an old military gun.I would like a bolt action if possible and if you guys could post some links to some of the 7.62x54rmm rifles that would be great. Ammo is very cheap on then like i found a can of 440 rounds for $70.:thumb:

The round is ancient. This is a rimmed cartridge from the late 1800s. The Mosin Nagant rifle dates to 1891. If you love the round buy a cheap Nagant model 91-30. you can pick one up for under $100. Don't customize it. Shoot the thing as is.

I have a bunch of the old guns I have collected since the 1960s. If you want a modern bolt action gun get a good round for it. for one thing the rounds out there are very corrosive and will tear up a barrel if you don't clean with hot soapy water after each shooting. Get a 91-30 and have fun.

i dont think he meant the ancient comment as a insult to the round i believe he was more or less saying its been around so long and its very effective in the guns it was made for. I love my two m44 they shoot like a dream and they were dirt cheap. Idk where you found 440 rounds for 70 bucks the lowest i found was 104$ for 440 rounds.

Mosin Nagant

Anyone can poke fun at these old guns if they choose but I own a carbine and a full size. Both are fun to shoot and the 7.62x54 round packs a punch. I wouldn't want you shooting at me with one! Hold on tight, they kick a bit:)
