I just had a question on whether Russian 7.62 Nagant ammo was ever loaded with with an iron core bullet. There is a Russian book (actually published in the Ukraine) that has a drawing of a Nagant pistol load with an iron core bullet and a 1988 headstamp. I have checked with a couple of collections and neither had a Nagant load with an iron core, as far as they knew.
First, is there anyone on the Forum that has a 7.62 Nagant revolver cartridge with an iron (or steel) core? If so, what is the weight of the loaded round? If you have a photo of the sectioned bullet, please post it, or send it to me via email and I’ll post it.
Second, If you have Russian Nagant rounds in your collection, please weigh them and either post the weights or send them to me on an email and I will consolidate the information. An iron core Nagant cartridge should be identifiably by the weight-I suspect.
Finally, some of you may already have all these answers. If so please share them.
Thanks for the help.
