    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




    Here's one compared to the shell from the Mosin

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

    7.55 French maybe?

    It's too short for a .308

  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.


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