    But any way I need 7.62x54r I cant find any ammo in any stores and I accidentally shot a .308 through my m44 any Thing that may come from this, and this is why I need the ammo is so that I need to know that the bolt closes and there's nothing in it becuase only half of the .308 casing came out it looked like a .380 casing came out of my rifle :/ need help fast

    Sounds like you have a separated cartridge casing. You do not need more ammo. If you shot a .308 in the rifle, you need to get it to a gunsmith. Besides the bit of ruptured casing that looks to still be in the chamber, you MAY have done damage to the bolt/ locking lugs. Headspace will be totally wrong on a .308.

    IF the rest of the gun is OK, a ruptured shell extractor will usually pull the casing. Any decent sized local gun shop should have the right ammo, and it is easy enuff to order on line- My UPS guy is still not speaking to me after the last order.
