    Why shoot 5.56 when you can shoot 7.62 x 54R :coolugh:

    i've stared at those pics for a while and the most positive thing i could think of is that someone finally made something that's uglier than a hi-point(pistols, not the carbines)

    7.62x54r is actually a balistically amazing round. That rifle, however, is not.

    It's the best because it's been used for over 100 years in combat :hsugh:

    So.... would you rate it better, or worse than a 30-30?

    It has more knockdown power than a 30-30.

    Hmmm.... Interesting. Which one do you think would be more accurate?
    I still think that they couldn't compare to a 308. The military uses it for sniper rifles, and even the SEALS use it.

    I want to build a sniper rifle to shoot 1000 yards with, and obviously I need something accurate. I also want to hunt with it, so I need something with a lot of knockdown power.

    Actually the Seals just use the HK MK23 as their primary weapon. The .45 bullet is bigger, therefor better than the .308 bullet.

    You probably want a 7.62x54. I watched Enemy at the Gates and the sniper Mosin was super accurate.

    Hey, Mosin/7.62x54r bashing going on in this thread. Who would have guessed that would happen in this sub forum?

    Is it still a tactical reload if the bolt hits you in the face?
