Hello,

I'll keep an eye out. They are very scarce.

Got lucky and found my M88/05 complete for $37.50! :D

Hello,

Thanks guys!

I've noticed my Mosin likes whatever has the longest bearing surface and that usually means lead round nose. However, I have several hundred pulled .311 bullets I bought for practice...

I'm an Indiana boy and, as such, don't know much about rifles.
