Interesting. Do you suppose a handloader could load the 54R to about the performance level of the 30-06, or is that just impossible? I am definitely considering handloading in the future, and 7.62x54R will be one of the rounds I reload most likely.
I don't always go to the range, but when I do, I prefer dosAKs.
They say 5 out of 4 people are bad at math, but what do I know?
