Somewhat ironically, the American brand Winchester was one of the original manufacturers to produce 7.62x54mmR ammunition, one of the most iconic and popular Russian cartridges ever made. When it was first introduced in 1891, the round was originally produced to feed Russian military weapons. While it’s still used for that purpose today, the Rifle Ammo has also become a popular hunting round for medium- to large-size game.
Part of the economical “USA White Box” brand, this Winchester 7.62x54R ammo features a lead core design to enhance knockdown power, a soft point bullet for rapid expansion, and a thin wall jacket for improved accuracy.
