    Ok, my buddy who has the Mosin had a bunch of surplus ammo. In with the stuff for the Nagant was some other stuff that was marked 7.62x54 but it was too small for that.

    Grabbed a c few pics best I could. I brought a few rounds home so I can try to get better pics if I have to

    Just put the two together.
    7.62x39 just equals the length of the x54r shell casing.

    7.55 French maybe?

  7. Looks like it's a Czech 7.62x45. It's the correct length, looks like the correct diameter and correct grove for it.

    I don't how this will look. I'm not arty.

    PS

    Not to bad. This next one is to scale on my monitor(the case is of the 7.62x39 is 39mm), but......
