Ammo Performance

When looking on the tin, that number 10 with the circle around it tells you all you need to know. This is some of the best, most reliable ammo made in this caliber. This is circle 10 sniper grade, silver tipped ammo, and the stuff is phenom! It is designed to stabilize in flight very well, and hold it's trajectory longer, thus minimizing bullet drop, especially at the longer ranges. Packs a respectable wallop as well, as does most 54r. You will not go wrong with the circle 10 stuff and would encourage all who own firearms in this caliber to grab some up like yesterday. Reason; the government is trying every back door trick imaginable from Executive orders, to signing the UN gun ban, to limit importations of eastern bloc stuff. While this caliber is reasonably available now, it may not remain so...... if the scratch is available, smart money says keep a spare case of this tucked in a closet somewhere.
It is also corrosive ammo, so don't forget to clean your firearm thoroughly after usage to neutralize the mercury salts. Any glass cleaner with ammonia works well, but the commies just dumped boiling water down the barrel with a funnel. Gotta love em for their pragmatism..... (Posted on 6/18/13)

I have shot this ammo in my 91/30 and my T-53, both with no problems whatsoever. Cycles great and no misfire or hang-ups.As soon I can get the money together, I am ordering another 880 rounds, just in case. (Posted on 5/29/13)

I've only put about 40 rounds through my 91/30 with this ammo but it shoots and cycles beautifully. Only concerns are split cases... about 12 out of 40 cases split at the neck with this ammo. The accuracy and penetration are phenomenal! I was only shooting about 120 yards and was truly shocked at the performance of the 38 year old ammo. Will definitely recommend to everyone I know that shoots either for fun or hunting! Thanks for the great product! (Posted on 5/7/13)

I’ve had numerous problems with other this ammo from other manufactures, but this Russian made 7.62x54r has never failed. Fired well over ten tins full (that’s over 4400!) and not a single problem ever! This is very reliable and very powerful ammo. (Posted on 12/10/12)

A great round for 100yd practice/Target & defense as far as I'm concerned. A little Windex up the barrel after firing and you cant go wrong with this stuff. If only my K98 would run this stuff...... (Posted on 8/17/12)

Review by Mike

I got this for my Mosin, the cans are sort of a pain, but I liked it because I know the other one is sealed very well. Like everyone else has said it is very dirty, also it is corrosive so if you value the bore of your barrel clean it after you shoot. I have shot around 50 rounds of this so far no FTF, very accurate as far as I can tell. On top of that it averages out to $0.20 a round not bad compared to my other rifle costs.

Bottom Line great buy (Posted on 5/13/12)

These rounds were my 4th purchase from Bulk Ammo, and they are always at my door before I expect it. I haven't busted into these rounds yet, like another reviewer, these will be saved for a rainy day - like the metal airtight storage container. Always good to stock up. (Posted on 4/27/12)

I like most of you purchased this ammo for use in my Mosin Nagant, and it was great. The two boxes came with a can opener to get them open, and although I have only opened one all the rounds I have seen are quality from what you would expect. They all shot great with my rifle, and were decently accurate for as much as I was. It's a great buy, and superb and fast service. (Posted on 4/12/12)

Product Question and Answer

Our customer service team has published this Q&A information as a free service to the shooting community. Please note that BulkAmmo.com expressly disclaims any and all liability with regard to how the shooting community might use this Q&A information. See Terms of Use for more details.

Q: Will this ammo reliably fire from a standard AK-47 semiautomatic?

Posted On: 3/23/13 By: Kevin

A: Chances are, your AK-47 will be chambered for the 7.62x39 round, which is not interchangeable with the 7.62x54r which is popular for older bolt action rifles. Also popular on the market is the 7.62x51 which is identical to the 308 Win. round. This caliber is also in its own league. All 3 of these rounds can easily be mistaken for another as the numbers look identical, though none are interchangeable with one another. With the AK-47 in mind, you will want to think 7.62x39 ammo.
Q: Is This brass re-loadable?

Posted On: 7/4/12 By: Christian

A: These Bulgarian rounds will not be reloadable after they have been shot. These rounds are Berdan primed, which are not designed to be used in the reloading process. The steel casing also make them a poor material for safely resizing and expanding.
Q: Does this order come with a can opener?

Posted On: 2/29/12 By: Vince

A: Yes, the order of 880 rounds comes with a can opener.
Q: Does the ammo come with the wooden Box/Crate?

Posted On: 2/23/12 By: Evan

A: The cans are packaged in a cardboard case.
Q: does this ammo have a steel core?

Posted On: 2/15/12 By: Zach

A: Yes, this surplus 7.62x54R ammo has a steel core and will attract a magnet.
Q: Does the bulk order of 880 rounds come with the stripper clips and also a can opener to open the can?

Posted On: 2/11/12 By: scott miller

A: The bulk order of 880 rounds (two 440rd cans) of Bulgarian surplus 7.62x54R does not come with stripper clips, but does include a can opener.
Q: Is this 7.62x54 corrosive????

Posted On: 1/18/12 By: Jimmy wich

A: Yes, this surplus ammunition is loaded with corrosive primers.
