Thanks. Just ordered 500 pieces.
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.

You can have my WIN brass. My Lapua brass should be in tomorrow. i was gonna just toss the WIN brass in the scrap box but its still good and reloadable.

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.

Varget. 45 grains and a 174 gr sierra matchking. .311 diameter.

Very very accurate load.

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.

Nah, I sold my Winchester used 7.62X54R so I could buy my second batch of Lapua on another board.
