Do any of you guys ever use the sp ammo for hunting? What kind of velocity will it get with the 203gr out of my mosin91/30? Thanks

My 91/30 loves the stuff, and it just flattens a deer at 100 yards (about the longest practical range for my eyes + those sights). I have never chrono'd the load, but on a good day I can easily shoot in to 2" or a bit less at 100 yards from the bench.

I've shot several white tail deer with the Barnul brand using the same 203 gr bullet. As pisgah said it just flattens them at normal ranges. I've loaded some 150 grainers but haven't had need too use them.

I can't say I have shot any 7.62x54 Barnaul ammo, but my SKS absolutely loves their 7.62x39 in 122gr. HP !!!!!!! It burns pretty clean and relatively inexpensive too. HD1
