Cool video! But it doesn't explain why they don't offer a larger selection of .311 diameter bullets. :lol:

It's because there are no sporting rifles in 303 caliber at least in the states. .311 is a military bore configuration. And as far as hand loading goes - there was never any intent to reload for a 91/30. The only hand loading for any Mosin was for the M 28/76 Precision Target rifle which has a .308 bore. This also is why 95% of all dies are set up for .308 while 5% come with a .311 expander pin.
