From what I understand, the steel core 54r rounds made in bulk were pretty much designed to go through as much soldier-and-soldier-related material as possible, WWII still had remnants of trench warfare in the form of deeply-stacked charges (forgot the real term), butbasically the mosin round was designed with mild steel to be cheaper in production and have the added external benefit of being able to deform significantly less on impact with a human target than a lead round.
