But any way I need 7.62x54r I cant find any ammo in any stores and I accidentally shot a .308 through my m44 any Thing that may come from this, and this is why I need the ammo is so that I need to know that the bolt closes and there's nothing in it becuase only half of the .308 casing came out it looked like a .380 casing came out of my rifle :/ need help fast

Sounds like you have a separated cartridge casing. You do not need more ammo. If you shot a .308 in the rifle, you need to get it to a gunsmith. Besides the bit of ruptured casing that looks to still be in the chamber, you MAY have done damage to the bolt/ locking lugs. Headspace will be totally wrong on a .308.

IF the rest of the gun is OK, a ruptured shell extractor will usually pull the casing. Any decent sized local gun shop should have the right ammo, and it is easy enuff to order on line- My UPS guy is still not speaking to me after the last order.

All of the gun is ok but that casing is still in there and I can't get it out and the thing is I tried to get it out with an extractor and I'm gonna get my dad to loan me his car to go to Allen Ky thats the closet gunsmith it sucks I let a .308 fall in my box of 7.62x54r rookie mistake

You can go online like c3shooter said, I get my ammo from Keenes in Bardstown 20rds for $11.99 +tax. If you have the money I would get bulk mil surplus ammo 440 Rds. 7.62x54r 147 - Gr. Fmj Ammo (1 Tin), Rifle Ammunition, Military/Surplus at Sportsman's Guide
"corrosive" ammo just has some salt on it so you pour hot water down the barrel after shooting but before cleaning and your good.

Good luck I hope everything turns out good for your rifle.

Ok thanks for the tip on the corrosive ammo
