    Suggestions on which 7.62x54R surplus ammo?

    Over at AIM they have:

    Bulgarian Steel core from the 1970's "Phenomenal"

    Russian Steel Core from the 70's-80's "Super Clean"

    I have never used either. (Just now getting ready to purchase a Mosin Nagant Rifle)

    This should be moved to the Ammo discussion area. I dont have a preference. If its cheap I buy it! I havnt had bad experiences with 7.62x54R ammo as much as other surplus calibers like .308, or 8mm.

    Best for what? Go "BOOM!!" - cheapest. Accuracy - supposedly 7N1 but I've never seen it first hand.
