Despite the "r" meaning Rimmed.. I still think its called the 7.62x54mm Russian.. Just like 7.62x39 Russian.. At least thats whats all the reloading manuals ive seen call it...


Whats the "r" stand for after the date on the Mosin-Nagant?

17 is the invention number, not because it holds 17 rounds.

17th patent awarded to Glock.

And to the best of my knowledge, the Luger was first made in .30 Luger, later 9mm Parabellum, and either one or two expermental models in .45 ACP.
