Anyone ever shoot a gun in this caliber. I shot one a few ekks sgo and DAMN was that one hell of a bullet. I stood about 10 feet behind my friend when he shot it. I was yawning at the time he pulled the trigger and it frecking blew my ear plugs out of my ears from the blast. This is one gun I would hate to be shot with the gun weighted about 10 pounds.

Sure. Mosin Nagant's are a hoot and cost about 60 bucks. It's a great round and the oldest service cartridge in the world still used by a military.

Can anyone give me any info that you have on this gun. History, how accurate is it. The shell is pretty damn big how big is it compaired to the 50 caliber.

Mosin Nagant is the bolt rifle designed in 1891 for the Czar's army. The rifle has been in many lengths, the 3 line rifle was VERY long, and was gradually made in shorter barrels. Its robust and powerful. The 7.62X54R is the first modern smokless rifle cartridge, and the longest in service. Its a ballistic equal roughly to the 30-06 and 8mm Mauser. They are fun guns.

I have a 91/30 and have shot a few M-44s - the 91/30 isn't bad at all, but those steel buttplate 44s will let you know you're shooting something... Ballistically, the 54R falls between the .30-06 and the .308 - it's just another .30 caliber - makes alot of noise, but doesn't "kick" as much as my .300WM... It's a decent caliber, and the rifles can be had pretty cheaply...

Those 7-1/2 lb. M38s and M44's are fun too.

Eh hemm......cough... The 7.62X54mm is NOT the first smokeless rifle cartridge CFII, the 8MM Lebel beat it by a few years, and it also is a rimmed bottle necked case. It's nowhere near the same class as the .50 B.M.G. kevinR, just a typical standard infantry round of the time.

O well, I read that somewhere. Oops. It does take the longevity crown by a long time.

I have an m44 and I love it. It is suprisingly accurate and packs a punch on both ends...its alot of fun for cheap.
