This is a discussion on 7.62x54R Overpressure??? within the Defensive Ammunition & Ballistics forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I think I'm going to go with my gut and not fire this stuff after firing my Hungarian heavy ball. That stuff works very well ...

    I think I'm going to go with my gut and not fire this stuff after firing my Hungarian heavy ball.

    That stuff works very well - it lets the action work almost like there's not a round to be extracted.

    Since I polished things up the bolt feels almost like a stock Rem 700 (I know... blasphemy). The Russian stuff I bought may or may not be safe, but it doesn't feel safe and it's really not fun to shoot when I'm dreading working the bolt.

    Thanks all... you've been a great help.

    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.
