    So, I have a mosin that I'm dying to shoot. I haven't checked the head space..nor do I really know how. Everyone I shoot with says "it will be fine."...and I being a Nancy? I know I need to check firing pin protrusion. Also does anyone know or have any expirence with 7.62x54r dummy rounds? I'd like to get some but amazon is a little pricey.

    Pretty much all the surplus 7.62x54r is on the weak end of things. Unless your getting your mosin from billy bob all the ones being sold "new" are good to go as they are coming out of cosmoline the russian factory slaves put them in after refurb.

    Mine didn't come with the tool to measure pin protrusion. I've got to pick up an aftermarket one.
