It's time to buy another tin of 7.62. The last tin I bought was copper-washed and I had problems with the gun going off with the bottom of the round exposed. Can anyone recommend something?
The best 7.62X54R I have found in all my Russian Firearms, Mosin's, 1910 Maxim, SVT etc bar none is the Czech light ball silvertip.
As is the Czech silver tip. I have fired many thousands of rounds out of my 1910 Maxim and RP 46 and except for a rare dead primer has functioned flawlessly.Which is expensive now and I do not suggest unless you are firing in a scoped weapon at long range such as a PSL,Dragunov or SVT.
It works well, but so does 90% of other lightball 54r.
Czech Silvertip is known for its accuracy, all current incoming 54r is known for its reliability.
Do you remember the headstamp and case type? I've had really good luck with Bulgarian heavy ball from that year. Marked 10 * 53 Brass case.I'd recommend NOT shooting the Bulgarian LB from 1953 (I think...). It made mine barf up the extractor, after ejecting cases that had split down to the head.

Oops, sorry. I got the type wrong, it's Polish LB, not Bulgarian LB:Do you remember the headstamp and case type? I've had really good luck with Bulgarian heavy ball from that year. Marked 10 * 53 Brass case.
