Introduced in 1891, 7.62x54r ammo is the oldest cartridge still serving in military use in the world. Originally made for Mosin-Nagants and other bolt-action rifles, it remains in service in Russia in the Dragunov sniper rifle and PKM machine gun.
Typical loads that you'll find for sale in this caliber fire a heavy 150 or 180 grain bullet at a muzzle velocity betwee 2,600 and 2,900 feet per second, with excellent long-range potential.
While bulk, surplus ammo is available for this caliber, much of it is corrosive and seems to be getting harder and harder to find. New production ammunition from Wolf and Barnaul's Bear series offers a non-corrosive alternative, while those who prefer brass-cased ammo will want to check out in-stock loads from Prvi Partizan or Sellier & Bellot. Soft point bullets are an excellent, cost-effective choice for hunting.
