If you're looking to use your new-to-you Mosin for some serious hunting, then you'll want to grab a box of these 203 Grain Soft Points from Wolf Performance Ammunition. 7.62x54r is a popular caliber due to its long range, high performance, cheap cost, and inexpensive rifle platforms like the Mosin Nagant and PSL. However, the vast majority of ammunition available in the caliber consists of full metal jacket (FMJ) rounds from military "spam cans" which are not ideal for taking game.
These Military Classic cartridges are loaded using non-reloadable steel casings, berdan primers, and soft point bullets. These soft point bullets are copper jacketed with an exposed lead tip which will expand on impact in order to create a large wound cavity after passing through the thick flesh of a deer, black bear, or feral hog. The lower jacket works to keep the bullet from separating or fragmenting and subsequently wasting energy or unnecessarily peppering meat with pieces of lead. The 203 grain bullets are heavy for the caliber and offer increased performance via deeper penetration needed to defeat the thick hide of big animals. As a result, these 7.62x54r rounds will drop game more reliably and humanely and as less likely to over-penetrate and create unsafe conditions out in the field.
Wolf Performance Ammunition is headquartered in California and sources most of its ammo from the Tula plant in Russia; the largest Russian ammunition manufacturing plant which is responsible for maintaining military specification of Russia's small arms calibers. They are world renown as a supplier of inexpensive, properly measured, reliable surplus style ammo that all surplus AK and Mosin shooters love. (Please note that these rounds are considered bi-metal and may not be permitted for use at some indoor ranges).
