You can usually find 7.62x54mmR for the Mosin for about $90 (plus shipping and taxes) per 440 round can.
8x56mmR for the Steyr is a little over a dollar a round and can be a little hard to find at times.
The Steyr also was chambered in 8mm Mauser (8x57mm), and 8x50mmR Mannlicher. The 8mm Mauser can be found pretty easily for a low price, but 8x50mmR is rare (did a google search, couldn't find any).
The 8x56mmR is the most common chambering for the Steyr.
If you get the Steyr, I recommend reloading to bring the cost of ammo down unless it's a 8mm Mauser. If it's an 8mm Mauser, your good to go.
