7.62x54mmR 148 Grain FMJ Russian Surplus Ammunition
The Russian developed 7.62x54mmR is the oldest military cartridge still in use today with over 120 years in service and was originally designed for the equally long-running and still popular Mosin-Nagant rifle. This 1970’s/1980’s production 7.62x54R Russian surplus ammunition was manufactured at the famous LVE Novosibirsk Cartridge Plant (“Factory 188”) as indicated by the “188” head-stamp.
This ammo features a Russian LPS type 148 grain light ball steel core, full metal jacket, boat-tailed bullet and a copper washed steel case. It is not reloadable and uses corrosive Berdan primers. This ammo comes packaged in the original moisture-proof sealed tins for long-term storage. Can opener not included. Supply is limited.
Several production runs of this ammo were marked with a silver tip and are fairly popular today. Even if this ammo does not include this marking, this ammo has all the same production specifications as the silver tip variety.
