I would avoid surplus ammo for serious shooting, such as

formal target, or hunting, as cartridge uniformity is questionable,

to put it mildly.
Wise words.

Sellier & Bellot makes excellent Mosin ammo of various types and excellent quality.

I agree with you guys, take it hunting if you want, many of them shoot quite well and are accurate but I love my 700. Good ammo is still available but I also like reloading the 7.62x54R. I have mine sporterized with a swing over scope mount and mosty shoot it from the bench. I dont shoot surplus ammo unless It would be loadable brass. Don't get me wrong I shoot my M/n but when it come to hunting, no matter what's in the cabinet, I take the ole 700.

I dont hunt with my Mosin. Not that I wouldn't. But I just have too many guns. But on the subject of ammo...I dont buy the surplus stuff. I bought a few boxes of the reloadable brass stuff and have been using it over and over again. I have used surplus stuff. But after every shot you pratically have to beat the bolt open with a 2x4. Good brass ammo is not like that. My reloads cycle like any modern gun with the best ammo.

I agree, Rick. They shoot good but not a Rem.700. I have mine setup for bench anyway. If it was all I had,yes I'd hunt with it.

OK, so this is the FOURTH time that you have name dropped your fabulous, miraculous, fantabulous, Remington 700 in a thread about the Mosin. To top that, you have only posted 10 times, I bet I can guess how many of those posts mention this mythic Remington.
The guy who started it wanted to know about hunting with a Mosin, not a 700. Many people have 700s, and for good reason, they are great rifles, but for crying out loud stick to the topic!
I wholeheartedly agree with him hunting with an old war horse, in fact I am likely going to have to take out my Finn M39 this fall just because he's got me thinking about it.

I do use an M44 when scouting and glassing for wild boar.

Once I'm moving in for the kill, I switch to something

with more stopping power.

More stopping power than the big 7.62 Russian.......What do you use a .50 BMG ?

No doubt...I was thinking the same thing.

577 Tyrannosaur or maybe a 700 Nitro Express...something capable of bringing down a hog...and the elephant standing behind it.
