Reloading 7.62x54r
Can you reload the 7.62x54r?

yup i do a lot of loading for it. just need some dies shellholder and brass. you can get the .311 bullets from lots of suppliers. you will be reallllly surprised how much better it shoots with consistant ammo.

Thanks for the info

best dies are the rcbs. they come with both 308 and 311 expanders. some mosins and psl have small enough bores to use 308 bullets

Thanks again. It will be a while until I reload but I was just wondering if the cartridge was reloadable

While you can reloade steel cases as long as they arent split or have two flash holes. Its not good for the dies however. Steel on steel dies is no bueno. Ive built up my brass supply buying loaded ammo with brass cases

Make sure you get Boxer primed brass. Berdan is a pita.
