I want to do that... what reload recipe do you use?

I have it for 165gr bullet in my book... do you shoot it though UK barrel?

Where you got those primers?
Can I use Federal Large Rifle Magnum Primers #215 instead?

No Magnum primers generate more pressure than a standard primer. You would need to recalculate the powder charge for a Magnum Primer. Besides you don't need a Magnum primer for a 7.62x54R

I just purchased some CCI Bench Rest Large Rifle Primers. Not the cheapest but the most consistent.

Hey DD, I went through some loading data & have a question about your load of 47gr H4895... It is one hot load... Did you have a chance to measure muzzle velocity? My guesses are it would send 174gr. Beyond 2700 ft...

Wow. That's cooking for a 174 grain. I'm using 42.5 grns of varget and getting 2430 fps, it's slow but it shoots .3 MOA. When I can find more Varget I'm going to max the charge out and see if I can hit a higher accuracy node. This load shoots really accurate.

I'm not claiming I could do it again because I honestly don't think the gun is that accurate, I just got lucky. 3 weeks ago I was shooting my Mosin at 750yards at a 12" gong. I could tell I was hitting it but could not tell where, so after 4 shots I stopped and road out to the target. I was floored to see my group. 4 shots at 750 yards measured 1.75" center to center of impact. Saturday I'm going to try it again for a few shots then move the gong to 930 yards. That's where this scope maxes out of elevation. Got to really choose my shots though. Only got 20 left then I HAVE to find some Varget

Yes, I hesitated to publish, glad you experienced folks read before you copy. It clocked at 2750fps btw. It is a UK Heavy barrel tho...

Mathews, I have found the best accuracy at around 2400fps as well. It does seem to hit another accurate node around 2800fps, but as mentioned, it takes some hot loads to hit that speed.
