    I used this 203gr bear ammo in my mosin nagant m44 knock around rifle (I use it for dragging through the river or when I go some where I know my gear will get tore up). I'm only good on the rifle for about 150-200 yards(iron sights) and this ammo will put anything you can hit in the dirt (no ammo is magic you have to practice, practice, practice). I took a doe this year with it from about 75 yard and she didn't even think of taking a step.

    I can't understand the good reviews for this ammo. I've shot close to 100 rounds and they ALL SUCK. I may have gotten a REALLY BAD batch. I can hit 100 yards no prob with milsurp rounds and higher quality ammo but I can't even hit 25 yards with these.

    The powder has a really poor charge or there just isn't enough powder. I have to adjust my rear sight up to the 300 yard mark to get on paper at 25 yards. Horrible experience.

            As I recall the R stands for "rimmed" as in "rimmed cartrige", it has a lip around the bottom for feeding (usually for mosin nagants)

            Soft point would expand on impact

          • A:

            i've tested these rounds on ballistics gel.. i was surprised at their ability to expand. 3 different rounds expanded to just about 2x their original size and retained nearly 90% of their original wieght. 2 of the rounds did fragment but the cavity wound was more than sufficient for taking large game. Ex: deer, caribou, elk...
