Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Found some 7.62x54 with a round nose fmj, silver painted tip and steel case. Looks like it might be Czech. Any info would be helpful. Thank you.

Over 3600 fps out of a 91/30 with a 44.8gr bullet. You cant say its a slowpoke. Thanks for the link.

Great ammo for new shooter training or painless plinking in the M38 & M44 carbines.

Old post, but new to me. Got a ton of these back in the day as they were safe to shoot in my backyard. These are a ton of fun. Reasonably accurate, minimal recoil. Especially fun on soft targets like small jugs of water or expired produce. Similar results to a 55 Vmax out of a .223. I need to hit up another gun show and try to track down some more. Thanks for reminding me how fun they are!
