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 Originally made for Mosin-Nagants and other bolt-action rifles, it remains in service in Russia in the Dragunov sniper rifle and PKM machine gun.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.

This Russian surplus 7.62x54r cartridge features a 148 grain projectile. The bullet dons a full metal jacket to make it feed smoothly in a bolt action rifle, and also assure that it will penetrate a variety of materials. This round’s copper-washed steel casing is precisely formed and inherently resistant to corrosion, and its mouth and primer pocket are both sealed to protect its more sensitive components. This round’s Berdan primer is corrosive, although a thorough scrub down after shooting is all it takes to make up for that matter.
These 440 rounds of ammo come sealed in a watertight steel spam can. That immunizes them nicely against adverse elements, so whether you’re heading off to the Eastern (or Western, depending on your point of view) front to protect the Motherland from invading European hordes or just taking to the woods to heat up your Mosin-Nagant’s barrel, this can is just what you need to take care of business. Please note that this spam can doesn’t come with an opener.

Silver Bear's 7.62x54R ammunition offers you a value that is great as the deal you got on your surplus Mosin-Nagant. Each round is built an inexpensive steel casing which is not reloadable but helps lower overall costs so that can spend more on camp equipment or warm weather clothes. The casing is coated with zinc which somewhat lowers feeding friction but mainly helps the ammo resist rust in humid environments. The Berdan primer installed at the base of the casing is free of corrosive oxidizers which could otherwise damage your barrel over time.
The cartridge is completed using a 203-grain soft point bullet which is heavy for the caliber and carries more lethal energy out to greater distances. The soft point projectile has an exposed lead nose which extends beyond its bi-metal jacket so that it is squashed during impact with a target. This causes the entire bullet to expand, tumbling as it travels to create large wound cavities that will effectively drop a large whitetail or wild hog. Silver Bear ammo is made in Russia's Barnaul plant and supported by expertise surrounding the mass production of this specific caliber.
