Default I finally caved in....

Ordered a Tula Mosin Nagant, 10 stripper clips, and 440 rounds of ammo last week...grand total of $200

Ammo and clips made it...Rifle should be here in the next day or two....Gonna have a hoot cleaning it!

Man was it a pain to open that thing without the special tool

Dremel tool with cut off wheels along the inner edge.

They're no fun to open even with the can opener unless you're an Olympic weight lifter.

I've got a Russian ammo can opener from an old order of 7.62x39mm. Glad I kept it.

There are some tricks to getting those stripper clips to work quick.

Get rounds loaded so that the rim of each higher round is in fron of the rim of the round below it.
After you insert the clip in teh charging guide on the action, grip the top round from near the front and use it like a lever to push the other rounds into the mag.
Press the top round into the mag.
Push the bolt home sharply to knock the clip out and load the first round.

The ammo came from SGAmmo.com, the stripper clips came from amazon.com

The rifle (not pictured) was ordered from ClassicFirearms.com for $105

Thanks for the tips. I did a little research before hand and saw a couple tip videos on youtube.

Ain't that the truth!! I remember being afraid I'd puncture one of the primers and ka-BOOM...

That's interesting...only problem I had was the clips were too tight. I took a brass hammer, mounted the clip on a 1/2" steel plate (edge of a shop table top) and tapped away until the rounds fit in nicely. From there, they work great, no worries about stacking, the clip pops right out on it's own.
