Default Mosin Nagant ammo

I have taken the advice of the very reliable sources on here and I purchased a Mosin-Nagant rifle 1943 arrow in the triangle version. I am extremely pleased with this purchase. I am going to buy as many as I can afford being limited on Soc. Sec. Disability income. I would like to know what any one would suggest I buy for ammo. I see that brass is better than steel but what is the difference or purpose for the different weights? 122 gr vs. 147 vs. 180. For long range shots what would be best? What is the reliable best distance as far as accuracy goes. Like, this rifle using a 147gr bullet is most accurate at 300-400 yards, info like that would be helpful and appreciated. Thanks, Funnelrider.

There is no 122gr 7.62x54r, 7.62x39 yes. Spam can 147..150gr is fine, but they really shine w/ Yugo M30(J) heavy ball (180gr). 400 yards and less 147gr is minute of man. 180gr will do better, much better. If you want fun ammo, 147gr is fine. If you want serious accuracy, find some M30 or handload your own.

I'm the same way but I still found mine, with the bayonet on, to be extremely accurate using the milsurp ammo. I was real happy with the performance of the gun and the ammo. It's just a bit more of a PITA to clean the gun after shooting.

How so, boiling water is cheap. I've been shooting corrosive ammo so long I have to stop boiling my wifes kettle when I shoot more modern ammo. I always fire up that tea kettle, then grab a beer.

Do you break the gun down completely before you clean it?

All you do is take out the bolt, a little boiling water on the bolt face. Pure some down the barrel via the chamber. That is all you need to do. Then clean as usual. The boiling water dissolves corrosive salts and they are gone.
