Thanks for your input, USAFret. I've never fired a Nagant pistol before, so I'm speaking in the abstract.
Other than being corrosive, how do the surplus rounds compare to the "modern" rounds? Does the shape of the case seem to make any difference or seal better than the other?
If a surplus round is harder to extract, wouldn't that indicate that the round better sealed itself during firing? (I wonder if it would help to wipe the rounds with a silicone cloth before loading the cylinder?)
