The 7.62x54r was designed in 1891 for use by the Russian military. It was originally designed for the Mosin-Nagant and remains most widely known for those guns but it’s also used in Dragunovs and other sniper rifles. Today it’s the oldest cartridge still being used for combat, in fact, in 2011 the 7.62x54r celebrated its 120th birthday. Although the round doesn’t quite reach the knockdown power of the .30-06 it does have similar performance in other areas as well as a similar military history, which has led many to refer to it as “the Russian .30-06.”

These particular rounds are 185 grain, making them substantially weighty for the cartridge size. They remain light enough to move down-range at stunning speeds but at this weight deliver a hefty impact. These are Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) rounds, so they won’t expand on impact, and because rifle rounds cant travel for miles before coming to a stop it’s a must to have a good backstop in place during target practice. Each of these rounds delivers a muzzle velocity of 2300 feet per second and muzzle energy of 2184 foot-pounds. These rounds are great for target practice, tactical training, and plinking.

When you order this box of ammo from Brown Bear you get 500 target rounds. With that much ammunition you can spend some serious time improving accuracy and shot placement and still have some left over for punching holes in cans and water jugs just for the fun of it. Brown Bear is a subsidiary of the Barnaul Machine Tool Plant, a company that was founded in 1869 and has a fascinating history. With almost 150 years of experience manufacturing ammunition you can be sure they have the process down to an exact science, and they’ve also built a solid reputation in the industry. Brown Bear manufactures ammunition at the Barnaul factory in Barnaul, Russia. Don’t wait another second to place your order. Your gun is hungry; feed it!

A: While some foreign surplus ammo contains corrosive materials, this Brown Bear ammunition is loaded with all non corrosive materials. The bullets do contain steel material which may prohibit use in indoor ranges.
