I am looking for an bolt action 7.62x39 rifle or single shot.

then I got thinking, 7.62x54r, little more umph with the same size bullet.

I am planning on casting for .311 dia. I have an mold already.
brass is the main problem.
what should I do. Rolling Eyes Suspect


found an rifle for 99.99 at an gunshop in 7.62x54r. I have half the money now. lol!

I have both.

The 7.62 x 39 (basic AK round) is like a light duty 30-30. Rossi makes a nice single shot for it. I have one set up with a simmons scope...I call it my wife gun. I shoot win 123 gr sp factory ammo through it and it does fine. The Rossie single shot rifles use the same tapping configuration as a TC Encore. I put a TC mono mount (2 rings cast on a solid single base) on mine and it makes quite the nice light 100 yard max deer rifle. Practice ammo is easy to get.

The 7.62 x 54R (basic Mosin round) is more like a 308 or 30-06. You can do more with it. You are pretty much limited to old Ruski rifles. The action on those old Mosin rifles is quite a bit stiffer than modern bolt actions. Note...these Mosins are not very easy to mount quality scopes. Also, if you know where to look, plenty of old milsurp practice ammo.

Hello from Germany!

Being a bit nearer to these Mosin-Nagants I recommend the carbine. It is only about 1 meter long and very handy. You can mount a weaver base in the rear sight and mount a aim point or pistol scope. I use the rifle with a aim point/red dot for drive hunting here in Germany. The 7,62x54 R is a very good caliber.

Regards

Kirrmeister

I had a Mosin Nagant and gave it to what I thought was a friend at the time he turned out to be a bung hole, I wish I kept it. Now I have had a CZ527 in 7.62by39 for some time its very light and has the nice single set trigger and points well.
