A match quality ammunition for the 7.62x54R that is normally utilizing mil surplus (and old production at that). From the original date of manufacture there has been an inherent accuracy o the cartridge that hasn’t necessarily been optimized in the ammunition or rifle platforms that the cartridge is utilized heavily in. This cartridge takes that gap between potential and production, and shortens it significantly. The Sellier & Bellot load with a premium projectile – in this case a Sierra Match King 174 grain bullet – makes legitimate sub MOA a possibility with certain rifles in certain conditions.
The real benefit here is the factory load and the ability to reload the brass which won’t make up for the price difference between this match quality ammo and the milsurp stuff you can find in the spam cans (if you can find it). It’s a pretty good start though, with the added bonus of the premium bullet and the very consistent load because of high tolerances and accurate powders that seem to be very clean burning in comparison to the mil-surplus stuff.
Suitable for use in any 7.62x54R rifle, but particularly well suited for sporterized/accurized surplus rifles or those built with high tolerances from the factory (e.g. Dragunov and clones) with scopes or other optics.
