A: The terminal performance of this 7.62x54R 180gr soft point ammo will be very comparable to 180gr soft points from a .30-06 - that is to say, an excellent choice for hunting if you can put the bullet in the right spot.

A: Berdan primers are generally slightly larger than their Boxer counterparts - meaning that they could only be used in Berdan cases. Berdan primers are also used almost exclusively in steel cased ammunition, which does not lend itself well to easy reloading. The industry has standardized on Boxer primers for brass cased ammunition, and there is practically no demand for this to change.
