    Some guidance for you.

    http://www.surplusfirearm.com/2011/06/04/reloading-the-7-62-nagant-revolver/

    DO be aware that there are extra steps for this round, AND if you have original Commie ammo, the brass will not be reloadable (look in the case- see the 2 flash holes for the primer? Finding a shell holder that will work with that real thin rim is going to be a challenge.

    If this is a first venture into reloading, look thru the books. If a copy of The ABCs of Reloading is not in there, head over to Amazon, find a used copy. Id it IS in there, READ all of it- I say again- ALL of it before futzing mit der reloading machinens.

    This is my first venture. But I have people to ask for guidance that have experience. And also I have the ABC's of reloading. The brass I have for the 7.62 is hot shots.

    My pref is corn cob. Walnut likes to leafe a red residue on brass and is pretty dusty

    Walnut and corncob are both excellent. But remember if you mix in a polishing agent like rouge or CrO, these are metal abrasives.

    Clean your polished brass for 15 minutes in untreated walnut or corncob to clean the polishing agent off.
