7.62X54 Brass

Anybody got a lead on some Prvi 7.62X54 brass? Graf's said they've had it on order for quite a while now and no ETA. Lapua and Norma is a little too pricey.

Tough to find...
Just picked up my first two Mosins last week. One I'm "sporterizing" completely, the other leaving original. Checking them out this weekend and if safe to fire, we're gonna have at it next week.

From what I see, the Prvi brass is darn near .50 each anyway.. and you can get the loaded ammo in the reloadable, boxer-primed brass for $14/ 20 rounds- so that's like getting 20 rounds loaded and ready to go for only four or five bucks more! I can't reload for that cost- so to me, it seems to make better sense financially to just buy the loaded ammo and save the brass. Of course, you won't have the accuracy of your handload initially...

If you happen to be loading for a Mosin...mind shooting me a PM? Got some questions re: loads and bullet sizes.

I've looked at some of their loaded ammo available and will probobly go with that until the bulk cases become available again.
7.62x54r.net and Mosin Nagant have alot of info.
Haven't slugged my bore yet, so no reloads thus far. But from what i've read,
most if not all Finnish 27s(mine) bores are closer to .308/.309 than some of the Russians. Hodgdon - The Gun Powder People has alot of loads listed and LoadSwap.com has a couple on page 21. Beartooth Bullets > Home, which is where you'll find the loadswap site, has quite a number of cast bullets if your interested.

Read the bore slugging tutorial, looks interesting. From what I've read, the M91's (mine) tend to be more .311, and that's what the Prvi factory loads use. Think I got lucky, they weren't hand-picked but both have decent bores and have not been counterbored.

I'm very interested in seeing what capability they have as a long-range target gun- meaning 600-800 yards and 2 moa or better. Probably not gonna happen, but it'll be a fun project. If I can't get 'er done with the factory barrel, I'm going to send it to Doc to fit a UK-59 machine-gun heavy barrel. By the time all's said and done probably could've bought a nice Savage with better accuracy for less $$...but that would be no fun

If you snoop around in the Curio/Relic section, you'll find some threads on the M/N. Look at the one by HITMAN.

Thanks CR.
I found some primed Winchester brass at Buffalo Arms. A little pricey. Oh well.

Ive been reloading the steel cases. I convert the berdan primer pocket to accept boxer primers. you wind up with 3 flash holes so be sure to use a start charge and work up carefully.

Sounds good. You use some sort of bushing to keep a drill bit centered in the primer pocket?

nope I sharpened the decapper pin its punches through and knocks the berdan primer out. then use a flash hole deburring tool to clean things up.

I always thought that Berdan primers were LARGER in diameter than a Boxer primer, and would just fall out if you tried to stick a boxer in a berdan hole?!?!?
How did you manage to get undersize berdan primer holes?!?!? Lucky you.
I would still prefer not to reload STEEL,though... its hard on the dies... I ruined a .223 die by doing that... ask me how I know they scratch the insides of the dies...

I have doubles of all my dies in calibers I reload steel cases. one for steel one for brass. The wolf and brown bear cases are all I have loaded and the large rifle primers fit.

I just bite the bullet and shoot and reload the Winchester brass I police. I just shoot the steel case and enjoy the cheap price and find other calibers to reload. If and when you find a better source for brass let us know. I heard there is a fire-forming a cut down cartridge from a ??? but I was not that gung-ho to reload this round as ammo was way cheap in the past! I can't remember or find it on you-tube now . Like I said I broke down and got the lee classic and do a few of the ones I police the brass from, just so I can say that I did it! When I buy 500 rounds for $90 bucks what is the point for plinking.

Keep an eye on Graf's website. Not long ago they got in some more Privi brass at a decent price. It seems to sell out quickly and according to Privi, they are the only distributors that Privi sells to.
