A bit off topic, but @LoooSeR or anyone else fluent in Russian, can you help me translate this? A friend of mine gave it to me as he was clearing out his home. It is brass cased and headstamped 188 over 74:

Thanks @LoooSeR !

 

Is this brand of ammunition still made for commercial sale? I know the Novosibirsk ammunition plant is still there.

 

Edit: Apparently yes, they still make the stuff http://www.lveplant.ru/pages_en.php?id=49

Pretty sure @Ulric picked some of that up at a gun show we went to once.

Nice. I'm on the hunt for some proper 7n1 but it is very hard to find.

 

I am told that SVD accuacy is about 2moa with 7n1.

If I recall correctly, he tested the accuracy out of his "Supermosin" bench rest 7.62x54R and it printed sub MOA.

Gun Jesus shooting the Knight's LAMG(they really need a new name for this thing). 

 

Looks to be a better Ultimax without the shitty ergos, wonky mags and looking like it was manufactured in the Khyber Pass.

      There are many who feel that the 5.56 NATO is a superlative rifle round. Much has been said about larger alternatives to 5.56, such as various 6.5mm and 6.8mm rounds among others. Less has been said about smaller rounds. Off the top of my head, I can recall that there was a German 4.6x36mm round, used in the HK36, and the British 4.85x49mm round. Neither of these rounds managed to gain widespread acceptance. My knowledge of the voodoo that is ballistics is somewhat limited, so I'm uncertain as to whether these failures were caused by flaws with the rounds themselves, or because they were below some lower limit of effective bullet size, beyond which performance decreases rapidly. Could we see a resurgence of these concepts in the future, or do they represent an evolutionary dead-end?
