    First time on the mosin nagant with these bullets on the range really nice and clean shooting not a bad recoil. I was expecting more of a recoil. When i went to clean it it cleaned easly was not heavy in carbin after 100 rounds.

    Comments about Brown Bear 7.62x54MM Centerfire Ammo, FMJ, 174 Gr.:

    Great product got here quick and runs clean through a mosin. The jacket is steel so it's going to be hotter than brass when you shoot so let it chill in the chamber. It does have a steel jacket so ranges won't let you use it indoors so be weary of that.

    Great fun for little money without chore of cleaning corrosive salts from gun. Heavier bullet increases recoil and changes point of aim and impact from 147 grain rounds in my Russian Mosin 91/30, not so much in Finn 91.

      Comments about Brown Bear 7.62x54MM Centerfire Ammo, FMJ, 174 Gr.:

      I used this ammo in a old mosin 91 30 that i have. i picked it up at gander mountain not expecting much but i was wrong. i got sub 2" groups with my 91 30 at 100 yards with iron sights on a benchrest of course. waaaay better then the surplus corrosive stuff.i only get 4"-6" groups with the cheap surplus. you cant go wrong with this stuff unless you are just plinking then i guess the cheap stuff is ok, but if your shooting paper this is what you want.
