Steel cased 7.62x54 ammo is proven reliable for over 100 years. Even in the most precision guns that were used for military long range precision tactical shooting have used this round. You give up absolutely nothing to use this cartridge, which incidentally happens to be loaded to the exact same specification as the military rounds from a ballistic baseline perspective. The 148 grain full metal jacket projectile is bimetal encased and will pull a magnet. Some ranges do not allow this ammunition. It is also not allowed in some ultra-highly regulated areas for hunting due to the material makeup of the bullet (check your state and local laws before using it for this purpose – even though it is touted as a hunting round).
Russian made and imported to the USA through the TULA corporation, this is a legendary cost savings for the bulk shooting enthusiast of the 7.62x54R. The round is capable of taking most of the largest north American Game you will encounter, and while the projectile grain weight is lower than some loads, it is well suited for deer through elk.
Non reloadable Berdan primed steel cartridge cases offer a good price point.
