So, a buddy of mine recently bestowed upon me an ancient Moisin Nagant in 7.62x54R and I can't help but wonder at the possibilities for customization and performance beyond slapping a synthetic stock and a scope mount on. The cartridge appears to be very similar to the .308 in performance and length. Some ideas I was wondering about were, rechambering, reloading and accurizing. If anyone has any thoughts on this rifle and how to squeeze out its range potential I'd lvoe to hear them. Also, most of the ammunition I find for it seems to be in the 200 grain category. Is this cartridge more suitable for such heavy bullets than the .308. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
