So I was at one of my local firearm shops today looking for 7.62x54R hunting ammo. They only had FMJ at the first store, and I don't know if the guy was just desperate to sell me some or if he was being honest, but he said I could hunt with the FMJ by modifying them. He told me all I had to do was file down the jacket until a good amount of the lead showing. I've searched and read a lot about this being done on 7.62x39, but read a lot of horror stories about the lead shooting through the front of the jacket and leaving the brass in the barrel and blowing the barrel up on the next shot. I don't intend on doing this, but I'm guessing it could be useful in case of SHTF. If this is safe, I'm guessing I could apply it to other rounds as well. Might be a stupid question, but I'd rather ask than screw up my favorite rifle.
