But for all the years this Mosin-Nagant ammo has sat around for, it’s still in remarkable condition. That’s because it comes in sealed spam cans (each weighing approximately 28 pounds). Sink an opener into one and the 440 rounds inside will catch their first breath of fresh air in ages!
This round features a 148 grain FMJ projectile. Its silver-colored tip indicates that the bullet has a steel core, which should help it to penetrate its target but which also makes it unacceptable for use at ranges that ban steel ammo. This round also features a steel case. A tough “Nugget” rifle should have no problem feeding and extracting a steel case, but steel’s low cost comes at the expense of being non-reloadable.
This round’s Berdan primer is corrosive. It functions a little differently to create the same kind of ignition that the more common Boxer primer would have provided, but in doing so it will scatter corrosive salts down your rifle’s bore. You’ll want to take extra steps while cleaning to prevent your rifle from becoming unfit even to decorate a wall at a military surplus store.
