7.62 Nagant Revolver data

Just picked up this odd ball and have dies and brass in the mail. Wondering if anyone has any good data for it. Ive got 700x and bluedot for powder. and a 71gr 32 cal bullet

I found this one load online. Blue Dot 6.0 grains-CCI 500-1007fps.

How would i go about working up a load as there is no load data for it?

Obviously too much powder and boom, and too little can cause problems too.

any ideas would be much appreciated.

Try here at these sights,
http://www.makarov.com/nagant/m1895.htm
bullseye 3.1-3.4 100 gr bullet

W231 2.7-3.3 " "

unique 2.9-4.3 " "

HP-38 2.7-3.6 " "

these start out light but give you nice range to find a accurate load.
also bear creek supply has a 100gr. swc .312.

The data I had found started at 2.7 grains of Bullseye, but this gave me very low velocities. Very tight groups though! I believe I am up to 3.2 grains now - I need to check my data when I get home - at work now. I use Small Pistol Primers. I don't need to worry about 'gas sealing' with the short .32-20 cases, so I seat the bullets just deep enough to clear the cylinder front.

My Red Dot loads are 3.5 grains, giving me right around 750 FPS average. Not as tight shooting as Bullseye though.

I use a 32 HBWC over 2.8 grains of Tite Group. I use 7.62x38r cases on a Dillon 550 and use a 30 Carbine sizing die as a crimp die. Not real powerful but very accurate.
