    Any bolt action 7.62x54 that is NOT a Nagant?

    Any bolt action 7.62x54 that is NOT a Nagant?

    I sure can't find one!

    Why doesn't Ruger make the American in 7.62x54? The rotary mag would work well with the rimmed cartridge.

    Might be because Ruger is in the business of making money and that would be a loser.

    No point. Commercial ammo is not cheap for basic ammo. Equal price 308 would be better quality ammo. Surplus ammo, besides being corrosive and inconsistent, is gone and what's left is expensive

    Find yourself a M39 Fin nagant and enjoy 7.62x54.

    Gotta admit, the Cuban "Alejandro Sniper Rifle" looks pretty damn good for also being a 7.62x54r



    Or the also, I am sure VERY expensive, SV-98:



    And, while not Bolt, a Mag Fed SVT-40 would be too much fun:

    Ultimately, at the end of the day though, Arik is right.

    Buy a nice .308.

    I own a 1943 Manufactured by Russian Izhevsk Factory. Matching Numbers on the Parts, clean Solid Bore; I shoot it a few times a year.

    But, it will never get as much use as my other bolts due to ammo availability and cost. Plus, hitting your bore with Windex everytime you're done using corrosive is a pain in the ass.

    Was thinking there was a Mauser variant in 7.62x54R, but apparently my memory was going the opposite direction.
