  • Mosin nagant M38 10 shot groups

    Had the opportunity to try my first lot of reloads for the 7.62x54 the other day. For the first lot of 10 shot groups I used 48.5 grains of 2208 with a Hornady 150gr SP interlock at 50 meters. This was the result bellow:

    For the second lot of 10 shots I used 49.5gr of 2208 (below)... had a slightly better outcome but the cases came out showing some minor signs of too much pressure, with one case neck having a crack in it and they all had very slightly flatter primers than the previous 10... thinking of trying perhaps 49gr of 2208 to try and meet in the middle.

    I have some 2206H to try as well... The M38 being a carbine it might be better as it burns slightly faster... any thoughts? And if anyone else reloads for there mosin carbine I'd love to here what you've been using. I'll chuck in a pic of the rifle as well (below) as it's now my most prized possesion and this is the only place I can show it off lol.

      thanks mate, I think the bayonet makes the M44 look a bit ugly, I had an M44 years ago and don't get me wrong they are great but IMO I think the M38 looks a bit classier if you know what I mean (classy for a mosin anyway lol)... plus I honestly have no need for a bayonet as yet.

    Which arsenal and what year??
    I take it's an early war carbine as it has no sling escutcheon aft and only a small low escutcheon forward...

      it's a 1943 Ishevsk all matching numbers and in an original M38 stock the only things not original is a Chatelleraunt bolt face and a tula extractor as it was refurbed in the Ukraine... interestingly it never had a new crown countersunk back into the barrel just a slight touch up on the original crown by a lathe and she seems accurate enough for a mosin... plenty of rifling too... I envision it as being issued to a vehicle or perhaps a tank but who knows what history it's got...
