    Yikes, I'd better hurry up before they run out. Fiance's son has a Nagant and I'm looking forward to reloading some ammo with him. He's anxious to see how it will shoot something other than milsurp.

    Greatly appreciated Josh ! This will give him something to work with. I'm going to hit the gunshow on the 20th in FW and see if I can find a deal on some bullets. What powder have you been using? I was thinking about trying H380 as my first test.

    Being the cheap bastage I am, I bought 7500 pulled 150 grain FMJBT's from Wideners back when they had them for $153/2500 shipped. I finally ran out of them reloading the Lapua brass.;) I was using 45 grains of H4895, because that was exactly what I weighed it at using a Lee 3.1 cc Powder dipper.

    I like that gunny pic gan. And right on. A nagant is a friggin revolver with a spare nail made onto the hammer.. And the 'mowseeen' is a swell pick up truck gun.. Now if ya really dig a good shootn 7.62X54 platform.. Nuttn better than a Finn.. Ive a very clean and slightly modified M39. And it will outshoot my 1903A3.
