[QUOTE=Rick1967;556218]Is that boxer primed?[/QUOTE its there steel case ammo, 185 grain i think it was. 10 is what some of the shops around here close to town sell surplus for. I can go to some of the smaller stores and get surplus for 5 a box but waste more in gas getting there.

Understood about gas money, Thanks for the heads up

I have been buying brass reloadable ammo at Cabelas for something like $12.99 for 20 rounds. I can't remember what brand it is. But they always have it on the shelf. Might have been $14.99. But I know it wasn't more than that. I go that route because 7.62x54r new brass is rediculously expensive. It was like $69 for 50 cases. That wasn't even loaded ammo!

I reload my 54r as well, I traded a bunch of .357 reloading equipment I received from my dad for 100 rounds of brass

The length and caliber of 7,62x54r and .30-'06 are almost the same, right?

Anybody know the difference in grains of powder between the two? The 54r case seems to be so much larger, I'm wondering about the pressures between the two.

Thanks!

the pressure the case is capable of is more important. the reason the 54r is lower pressure is because of the weaker steel cases. brass cased 54r can be loaded to the same pressures as the 30-06. do NOT interchang charge data between the two as case design can have an effect on the pressure curve. the performance of the two is sooooo close i believe that somone copied someone else

max pressure:

7.62x54r: 57,000 psi
30-06: 60,200 psi

7.62x54r: 150 gr 2,840 ft/s 2,677 ft/lb
30-06: 150 gr 2,910 ft/s 2,820 ft/lb

That is the information I was looking for, Jon. I don't reload. I was just asking how close the two performed. You read my mind, as usual.

And at half or a third the cost, 54r is a smokin' deal!
