You don't want to rechamber a mosin in .30-06, its just not safe. The 7.62X54r is plenty potent for those ranges, In fact, more so than the -06. The mosin round has a Better BC and retains velocity and energy better, exceeding that of the -06 when they both reach beyond approximately 400 yards.

There is a site that is selling 7.62X54r machine gun barrels, new manufacture I believe, extremely heavy, they would make great target barrels. I'll see if I can find it. That's the biggest issue with mosin accuracy, most have enough wear in the bore they they simply don't have it anymore. 4MOA is considered pretty normal for most mosins. Some can get sub MOA, and some can't hit the broad side of the barn from the inside.

Building a 6.5-06 Swede off from a 91/30 mosin action. Its gonna look like a normal mosin but be chambered different than anything most people will have ever heard of

Danger Will Robinson.......or Marlinman

First the flaw is that the 6.5-'06 is 63mm long and the Mosin 7.62X54R is 54mm. Then the greater flaw, the 6.5-'06 gets chamber pressures in around 66000psi. The 7.62X54R gets chamber pressures around 36000cup. Converting 36000cup to psi is (Drum Roll) 38000psi. Which means you have too much pressure by about 27800psi.

I have seen (1st hand) several Mosin come apart because of chamber pressure.

Possible solutions

wildcat
6.5X54Rmm Mosin Nagant brass
6.5X55R Swedish Mauser

There are serveral other options. I'm currently in the ME and I don't have any of my reloading or chamber or cartiridge books with me.

1) we are just necking 7.62x54r down to 6.5x55 Swede bullets.
2) this is no factory mosin barrel but a krieger #3 blank the we bored and rifled ourselves.

So it would basically be a 6.5x54r wildcat

Yep. I just didn't know what else to call it. Its pretty danger accurate though 1.13" groups at 100 yards.
