In the past year I've become a fan of the mosin rifles, learning as much as I can. Some on forums, others on blogs, and even more at the range. Well I did learn/confirm something on Wensday at the range, don't shot 7.62 Bulgarian with red wax primers. This is belted ammo and very hot loaded. I show five round only and got three split cartirdge cases. Sadly, I had bought 60 rounds of the stuff and afraid to shoot anymore of it. Not sure if the stuf would be any good in a SVD, but don't why not. Too bad I don't have one. Guess I just found a reason to locate one and try it out.
