    Where do you buy 7.62x54R clips? I have these brass ones from eBay, but they aren't all that great.

    actually, they are probably fine, its all in how you hold the clip. Make sure that they are stacked with the rims staggered properly. Then, stick it in the slot on the receiver. Using your index finger, pull UPWARDS on the top round at the shoulder, then with your thumb, push down on the BASE of the top round. that SHOULD get them all to feed properly into your rifle.

    I have found though that just as with some ammo a mosin will have a sticky bolt, same with some ammo. My strippers will feed laquer case all day, but not copper wash.

    Truth.

    But unfortunately, there's too much space where the rims are held in the clip. Sometimes when I pull up on the tip of the top round, the rim slips back behind the rim of the round below it.

    The brass is very thin and deforms easily...especially when you step on it. :mamoru:

    I ordered some steel stripper clips online. Hoping these work a lot better.

    Ohh man, mine love that too. I haven't even thought about buying mosin ammo in the past few year but I'm finally dried up. I remember buying cans of 54r back in 2001 for $25 a can.
