Aside from the recent Winter War with Finland, my need was that of a tool for maintaining the tenuous peace provided by the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact with the …

7.52x54R Ammunition Availability

August 12, 2015 Since I know a lot of folks are a bit unhinged (like yours truly) and follow many Mosin-related pages, this might be repetitive... but for the sake of those fortunate individuals who follow only a few groups, this might be a good discussion: Embargo.

Range Report – 1944 Tula M44, aka “Dushka”
