7.62x54R collectors...let's chat (new to the Forum!)

Good morning all, new user here. Looking for some fellow 54r collectors out there. Would love to see / share pictures and knowledge about the subject. Thank in advance.

Welcome here Lord-Humongous!
This is the right place to be and to discuss the subject.
What exactly is your scope on this caliber? Just all or military or certain countries?

Hey there. Thanks for the welcome. I’ve been collecting 54r from all countries/ plants. Military and commercial.

Omg thank you so much. This is unbelievable. :grin::grin::grin::+1::us_outlying_islands:

Here are few Dummys.


Outstanding. I recently purchased a handful of #9. Need to find more. I’ve only been looking on gun broker. Another thoughts. Gun shows are no go since I live in the commie Cuomo state of ny

Hi, I’ve a lot of Moisin ammo in my collection. If you give me some time I’ll take picts and share with you. Any desired one especially?

I collect U S made 7.62 x 54R.

Here is a Barrel Proof cartridge made from a .303 British case with U 15 VII headstamp.

Wow, I didn’t think stuff like that existed. Very hard to find us made 54r.

Very old photo (my 53R/54R collection is now at 45 specimens and I collect all military + Finnish civilian), but number 5 and 7 (from left) are pretty special to me.
Swedish made (CG) 54R tracer and proof/barrel slug rounds, made for the Ksp m/95 (PKT) machine guns on the ex-DDR Pbv 401 (MT-LB)s.
