I recently aquired a mosin 7.62x54r rifle and 100 rounds of ammo.
Can anyone tell me if the russian spent brass is capable of being reloaded. I have been told conflicting statements. Some say because the original casings have corossive primers they can not.
Any help?

All my ammo is magnetic. Looks like I can not reload.
Does anyone have spent 7.62x54r non steel shells they want to unload?

a lot of loaded / milsurp 7.62x54r is berdan primed instead of the boxer primers we're accustomed to (even some that is brass cased). two options for excellent brass are norma and lapua. both make 7.62x54r and midway is currently showing each in stock. its pricey, but should last for many reloads.

Watch out if using milsurp ammo- much of the communist block stuff is corrosive. Corrosive ammo requires a different cleaning process- Hoppe's #9 won't get thecorrosive salts out.
