7.62x54R availability?


#1

Are any big box or chain stores that sell this cartridge? Or am I stuck buying it online? I don’t mind paying more for non-surplus ammo but just aren’t sure where if anywhere I could just walk in and buy some.

Also, what brands sell non-corrosive cartridges? I have no interest in surplus ammo that’s corrosive…

You have an Academy Sports?

Yessir, about 3 of them within about 15 miles of my house.

Their house brand makes 54r it’s no metal jacketed so I wouldn’t recommend a steady diet but for a couple times a year or once a month sure.

Thanks for the tip. For the majority of the diet what’s a good non-corrosive round to use?


#6

PPU has some, of you handload I have a mix I found online that should work. Also my phone corrected bi-metal to no metal in my previous reply don’t know why
